"When the Russians copy American semiconductor chips, it's considered a threat to national security."

"When the Japanese do it, it's considered a highly questionable trade practice."

"When a US company does it, it's called reverse engineering and encouraged."

"However, watch what happens when it's done to them..."

-- James Catanich 1979
