Noncompetes are tricky things...
I assume the noncompete that owners/developers sign when they sell their product to a another company is viewed diffently by the courts then the typical NC just about all tech employees have to sign.
I also assume that IB feels that the new product was worked on while the Xenforo employees still worked for IB and/or were under the NC.
Xenforo could be completely written from scatch but if all the new ideas came while the employees were still at IB they could be in violation.
Have to wait to see the actually suit.
