Gone Gaming: IP, Morality, and the Gaming Industry, Part Two: Developers: "John Bohrers has a history of legalistic combativeness that disregards the game player. My understanding is that his father is a patent attorney or copywright lawyer or some such thing, a fact which he bandies around like a threat. He attempts to intimidate people through the implied threat of a lawsuit for which he will pay no legal fees. This is probably especially intimidating to a foreigner faced with the American legal system and its less than stellar international reputation. John acts exclusively in his very-narrowly-defined self-interest that leaves him looking like he is indeed, a crackpot."
