We don't know who is responsible for these statements.  I doubt Freedom Scientific is.  They have a legal department and, sorry all you Window-eyes fans, Window-eyes advertising that came from the company itself, did more disparaging of JAWS than JAWS advertising did when they were competing. 


I have never seen directly disparaging comments coming from whoever owned JAWS.  Maybe it's time for people to realize that they despise JAWS and ask if that makes them too eager to believe anything they see anywhere that puts JAWS in a bad light. 


Those who owned JAWS did certain bad things, such as filing frivilous lawsuits against competitors.  Legal but reprehensible.  But they don't go around making patently untrue statements about the products they are competing against. 


I can't speak about independent vendors.

They would deserve suing on the part of NV Access, although I realise
that will never happeen...

People would sell their mother rather than give up some profit...

Che schifo! As we say here  in Italy...
