I mean if you were the CEO of KFC and you heard that McDonalds stole your secret formula for "good chicken" and constantly publicized it, would you be pissed?
Ugh I hate Disney so much. But I can understand what you are saying.
Honestly, all I care about is that a third movie gets made and its good. I don't care if it hits the billion dollar mark or not (although it would be cool if it did), I just want it to be a good movie.
No matter what, Star Wars will always make more money anyway, and be more popular to the GA (doesn't mean it is "better" at all however). But I believe that those who liked the JJ Abrams 2009 Star Trek film will still go on to see Into Darkness and the third film in 2015-16.
