Pythaeus suggests

Pythaeus suggests that Scitex may buy Altsys and attempt to settle some litigation in the process. Apparently, Altsys, the original developer of FreeHand, is suing Aldus over Aldus's recent merger with Adobe, since Altsys either wants FreeHand to stay alive or to come back to Altsys. In a seemingly unrelated plot development, Scitex is suing Aldus over TrapWise. To bring the plot lines together, rumor suggests that if Scitext buys Altsys, then Scitext will try to settle out of court with Aldus, such that in exchange for dropping the charges in the TrapWise suit, Scitex gets the FreeHand rights back from Aldus.
