Except they accused us of having run away with the code for an entire project, which we were picking up from an existing customer. And of not delivering it to them, after we had and they had not paid us or the office rent for months.
I was inspired by the story of Compaq and others clean room reverse engineering the IBM PC BIOS so that they could make PC clones without stealing the original BIOS code.
