I suspect a distinction could be made in court by a competent attorney between

"colluding to hurt Cogent"


"collaborating to keep Cogent's ill-chosen policies from hurting the utility 
of the greater Internet".

The Law does not guarantee *any* business the unsullied right to conduct its
business in any particular way and expect that always to work; companies
much newer than buggy-whip manufacturers have long since learned that.
