Ah, ok. The raid makes more sense in that context, since individual retailers generally aren't worth prosecuting in cases like this from a cost/benefit standpoint.

It'll be interesting to see who and what steps in to fill the vacuum this prosecution will leave. It's not as though there aren't 2,736,542 other crappy [x]x-in-1 boards to choose from, and just as many people looking to make a buck from them.
