The League of Evil Empires

  1. Apple — for being a bully and a patent troll, not to mention promoting totally closed computer-based system where Apple is the final, and only, arbiter of what you may or may not do with equipment you have bought. Also for UK tax avoidance that is mighty close to tax evasion.
  2. Microsoft — for being a bully and a patent troll, not to mention using any and all tactics to maintain a monopoly in the face of their products clearly being inferior.
  3. Oracle — for being a bully and a patent troll, and using any and all tactics to extract monies using assets even if that means what looks like extortion.
  4. Google — for doing evil despite the company motto, and for trying to own all your data. Also for UK tax avoidance that is mighty close to tax evasion.
  5. Amazon — for wanting to own all your data, at least that which isn't already owned by Google. Also for UK tax avoidance that is mighty close to tax evasion.
  6. The USA Patent System — for allowing anything to be patented thereby ensuring that the large corporations can remain in charge of everything, and especially the control of change.
  7. The EU Patent Office — for trying to enforce the USA patent system on the whole of Europe.
  8. Dell — for claiming to sell workstations and laptops running Ubuntu and then refusing to offer any for sale. (You try buying a Dell with Ubuntu instead of Windows.)
