I've been following this for quite a while now.
Have you seen Nikons response?? They are OK with it!!
That has the people really up in arms about it. 
I think (with some 20/20 hindsight now) that Nikon will let this stand because it brings SO much attention to the Nikon name. (yea a lot of bad attention but attention nonetheless)
This is like free marketing to them. ::)
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?
