Well, in the Good Ole You Ess of Eh, the usual procedure is that one is innoncent until proven guilty. It's not my job to prove my innocence - it's Borland's job to prove my guilt. To do so, they have to come up with good evidence, and they have to use due process to get that evidence.
What's so bad about that? It's worked for centuries. And bad guys DO get caught.

That's their problem. How does anyone, using due process, "prove" that anyone is doing anything bad? There must be a way, somehow, to detect bad guys and bad activities. After all, prisons are bulging at the seams, and new judgements are rendered everyday.
Yeah, once in a while a baddie slips through. Most of the time, however, justice prevails.
Surely Borland can find a way to work within the system. Of course, there's Micorosoft.... but don't get me started.
