    Company to pursue action against HHS for using copyrighted web script.
    Healthcare.gov, the federal government's Obamacare website, has been under heavy criticism from friend and foe alike during its first two weeks of open enrollment. Repeated errors and delays have prevented many users from even establishing an account, and outside web designers have roundly panned the structure and coding of the site as amateurish and sloppy. The latest indication of the haphazard way in which Healthcare.gov was developed is the uncredited use of a copyrighted web script for a data function used by the site, a violation of the licensing agreement for the software.

    This is like a ship designer suing the builders of the Titanic for ripping off his plans. Better to avoid being associated with it than make a few bucks over the intellectual property theft.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
