This is it then, Adobe's long-expected trump card against Red5 - it
was foolish to be lulled into the illusion that fighting this threat
to their bottom-line was not a top priority for them.
My guess: we'll see, within a month of the upgrade, the follow-up
double-whammy of a "coincidental" Cease & Desist from one of the
trademark holders of the Red5 name, kindly funded by Adobe.
