Any news about this?

Are SDL considering an unfriendly takeover bid, and are Trados in a position to defend themselves?

Is anyone familiar with the possible legal battle involved? This would be under US law, I presume?

There is already a thread on this,, with quite a few reactions to this news.
It's best to continue contributing to that one, rather than starting a new one here.

Thank you,
