They're not wrong on the merits here. They have a fair shot at straight dismissal because all the claims are based on *intent* to limit consumer choice whereas DRM is intended to limit piracy. (snicker)
Fair shot is not the same as certainty. If a prolonged lawsuit has a negative impact on them they might decide to settle.

Do Apple, B&N and Kobo fall under the jurisdiction of the court?
