PR is also expensive, and far more difficult to target without some major new product announcement or some such. What media outlet is going to take any notice of "RISC OS formerly the real Acorn is still here honest", it would have no effect. On the other hand raising a legal injunction aginst faux-ACL would generate waves of coverage in computer press and even hit the mainstream media too. It would be the most effective PR money could buy.
