I think you've confused the names of the rocket and engines, from what I have read the engine is called Rutherford and the rocket is called Electron.

I'm not saying if it was right or wrong but my understanding is that they want him for more than just copyright infringement. IIRC there were conspiracy charges and money laundering as well but he has managed the PR so well on this that it is about the big bad studios stomping on the little (well not so little) guy.
The amount he pops up in the news over here is ridiculous, keeps promising all sorts of things or is in court over one thing or another. His political party is a joke, he has formed an alliance with a far left party just to work our MMP system to get a far left politician (he picked as the leader of his Internet Party) in to parliament to do his dirty work. Hopefully come September the voters realise what a joke this is and they get nowhere near parliament.
Re: 60k wan't a guess
Another article I read on this suggested that the problem was that the flight plan had been filed under VFR and the system was trying to route the U2 down to 10000ft as that is the limit for VFR flying. It was the quantity of changes to other flights in getting it down to 10000ft that overwhelmed the computer.
Re: Somebody doesn't know math I believe!
The lightsquared signal might only be -30dBm but the signal strength of the GPS signals is somewhere around -120dBm, which is a huge difference. The problem is that the lightsquared signal will saturate the input filters of the GPS Rx causing loss of signal.
More likely test interface
Looking at the high res photos on iFixit of the dock connector pads it looks like they are used for bed of nails type testing during production as you can see clearly small needle like marks on each pad. This does make sense in that for development they can fit a dock connector to make things easy but then remove it in production, relying on a bed of nails setup.
It also looks like the dock connector might clash with the screw hole beside it as the plug appears wider than the footprint for the connector.
