Seriously WTF?

Suing for use of *facts*? I mean in any sane world this is not going to fly, but for the next however many months/years there are not going to be any updates to the TZ database, and any changes (of which there can be many in any given year) will not be updated - resulting in times in many parts of the world being mis-reported in emails, on web logs, and in documents. From a legal perspective, this is a potential disaster - not to mention the other impacts for technical people.

Rage does not adequately discribe my mood right now.
