they won't operate at a loss forever, just long enough to gain a substantial
share of a particular market...by then the audience learns to associate the
company with that brand...i learned this strategy in the software

anyways, i was just wondering if anyone cared about it especially if they
make their living at it...or even if they just love this particular genre
and don't want to see it dissipate...

i don't think controlling anyone is what they're after...just the market if
