>>Thanks for the potential lists of competitors, but do you see my point? Is it a better indication of
Rule Maker status to evaluate Nokia against the average of Ericson, Motorola, and QCOM or
only against the strongest of these? This is a basic question that I have regarding the Rule Maker
scoring system.<<

Since you are testing its monopolistic power, I would rank it against the strongest competitor. I would only do the average in the event that the rankee is not exactly comparable to its number one competitor. Then I may average a few companies that do what they do to possibly dim the effects of the noncompeting products.

Hope this helped.
