It's a stupid question, since:

- We won't kill off all those companies, just the lame ducks among them
- Said lame ducks spend more money on managers than software developers
- Mostly they are just copying (or outright plagiarizing) not innovating
- There will still be plenty of software when the lame ducks are gone
- We don't "copy" software, we "derive new software from existing works".

A better question to ask would be: could we possibly fit more logical
fallacies into a single sentence?
