When a Corporate Giant Sees Profit in Litigation, Bring Popcorn

Corporate Counsel Magazine takes a look at a Dupont company Strategy that has the chemical giant at the plaintiff table:
Gauthier and Mariani told the 160 lawyers, outside counsel, and vendor representatives gathered in Wilmington that DuPont lawyers have let far too many litigation opportunities slip by. When suppliers overcharge, customers underpay, or rivals infringe on DuPont's patents, the company often looks the other way instead of seeking damages, either in court or out.
It will be fun seeing what happens when a Dupont feels that they've overpaid for all their copies of Windows. I want a ringside seat.
