What it comes down to is that creating a superior product means very little 
when you're against a big corporation, the classic example obviously being 
Tengen not paying for a development license for the NES and having their 
version of Tetris pushed off the market by Nintendo, who couldn't even be 
bothered to include a 2-player mode in their version. I'm actually surprised 
that Atari didn't attempt any kind of countersuit given that the arcade 
version of Tetris has an Atari copyright on it, and Tengen is owned by 

Situations like that are just really saddening when having the money for a 
good lawyer, repeated appeals, and the like allows you to compete unfairly 
like that.
