Because, as I said, it's a matter of perception. Big corporations are already demonized just by virtue of being big corporations. Lawsuits that go after one individual seeking huge amounts of cash make them look like bullies to some consumers.
And really, does anyone believe for one second that any cost savings would be passed on to consumers?
