[TRANSCRIPT] So I worked with a German software company, doing a lot of their licensing work. They had a problem getting this transaction to completion, part of it was, at the time they were using a law firm that was candidly arguing in the transaction about things that just were unimportant. They took a chance of plugging us into it, me, specifically. My approach is to be very pragmatic and try to figure out what the other side needs and what can we reasonably provide. We pulled that transaction out of the ditch, and they were delighted. They were surprised that they actually got the deal closed. The result is they continue to send us lots of good work after that.
