you probably know that there's a search engine contest and
a petition, a webring of 10+ protest sites, a banners exchange,
an email campaign, a lawsuit...
see http://mitpress.mit.edu/Leonardo

Yves Delacour, chairman of Transasia, which pursue
Leonardo for copyright infringement based on search engine requests,
asked for an interview in zdnet.fr after 1 month+ of press blackout :

"The only thing I'm asking for is to prevent any confusion between our
websites. All this is regrettable, and instead of disputing, we'd
better join our efforts. A mediator could be the point."

He added that all this hacktivist campaign against his company
(he received 1000+ protest and even threatening emails) is
"regrettable" and that he doesn't believe to gain the 1 million $
compensation his lawyers asked for.
