[Bill Davis] "I don't know what IP issues were buried in FCP-Legacy. But it would be silly to expect that there weren't some. So the "blank page" beginning makes HUGE sense if you want to go forward with a product that is clear of as much IP baggage as is possible."

I absolutely think this was a driving force in Apple's decision. They dumped all outside code. It may even relate to some of the changes in naming conventions.

I think fundamentally Apple's handling of FCS to FCPX were in part due to legal/licensing/IP reasons.

[Bill Davis] "but it also means no need to carve out dollars to send to external IP owners out of the revenue stream in every transaction."

This why I think FCS was killed so suddenly. I suspect a long transition was not viable given certain licenses/IP, etc.
