DevOps
Arista's move with EOS+ reflects fundamental changes, which put legacy vendors at risk.   We use the term 'DevOps Networking' to reflect this new fusion of networking and programming expertise.  Announcements such as the Facebook Wedge, a server-switch, and open network hypervisor architectures like that sold by my own company, Pluribus, help drive the industry in this direction.  Sunay Tripathi, our co-founder, also published a great blog that looks at the lawsuit from an SDN perspective.

Re: Survival
If the Arista executives hadn't touted how much their CLI is exactly like Cisco's or copied Cisco's documentation word for word  it may have continued to fly under the radar.

Survival
This is certainly an effort by Cisco to maintain survival mode. It usually uses mergers and acquistions for this, but legal wrangling is probably just as helpful. I don't agree with it, but this is what big companies do to protect their turf. That's the reality.
