Ed Felten, who is starting to make a habit of drawing cease-and-desist notices from manufacturers, has posted a notice from Sequoia Voting Systems
telling him not to analyze any voting machines. "Sequoia has also retained counsel to stop any infringement of our intellectual properties, including any non-compliant analysis. We will also take appropriate steps to protect against any publication of Sequoia software, its behavior, reports regarding same or any other infringement of our intellectual property.
" Certainly a democracy would have no reason to want to know about the "behavior" of its voting machines.
