I'm tired of people saying that ST09 failed for this or that reason, and then someone else barges in and yells "IT DIDN'T FAIL IT MADE A LOT OF MONEY LOL" when nobody was talking about box office returns.
But box office returns are a consideration (especially after the stinker that was Nemesis), because it proves that a lot of people still love Star Trek despite the downhill slope it had taken in recent years, if 250 million dollars worth of ticket holders was any indication.
Box office returns are in no wise an indicator of integral quality. Britney Spears concerts sell out, while high opera goes starving. The term "caviar to the general" was coined for a reason (though, of course, the general are in fact ignorant of it).
"shall not be infringed" is naturally open to infringements of all kinds, because shut up and think of the children.
