"A bit different?" You must be joking. Have you even seen the Court documents? What do you think the lawsuits here say? They say that the companies have been hiding the amount of money they made from the slave trade. Exactly the same claims made in the Holocaust suits.

Case 1: I sell a legal product to person A. Much later, person B sues me because the product is no longer legal.

Case 2: Person A entrusts me with his money, under a contract in which I pledge to give it back to him or his heirs on demand. I refuse to give it back.

The parallels are less than striking.
