#1 First part is illegal and rather draconian and illogical. My employee made a hot item that\'s boosting our sales. Let\'s fire him because people are whining? That doesn\'t make sense
#1 Second part illegal?
#2 and #3 Why would they restrict there sales to a hot product?! Talk about cutting the nose to spite the face. They\'re getting their money regardless of who is buying, they\'re not going to restrict sales because some company starts whining that \"it\'s not fair!\" because their product can\'t compete, that\'s just the way a free market works. Besides it literally happens *all* the time.
#4 OEM users wouldn\'t be happy if the chip they used went out of production, everyone would just swap to a new chip and then what? The ultimate solution being suggested is to not let anyone have it.
I\'m trying to follow you here, but it\'s not making sense, is this supposed to be satire?
