That is a big IF, maybe it should be an iff (IF and ONLY IF) like in Mathematics.  :)

They(FreeBSD) should be protected, the users can get the ports from source, they do not ship binaries(except the installation *.tbz files).  

Now, what is the probability that NetApp would win?  Is it a sure event? or uncertain event?  We should have no idea on this?  Which court system?  Is it in a U.S. based court?  

In many ways when Fedora was created there were troubles, there was an existing Fedora Project already, and the thing got settled :)
