In summary: Q: "Does your standard contract entitle you to all of a site's revenue, even that which was not generated by your members?" A: "Please forget that question and focus on how much international business we represent, instead." Much better answers would have included "no" or "we are perfectly willing to work out case-by-case agreements." Instead we get an incredibly obvious runaround. Dodging the question is a sign of weakness; taking it on lets you at least try to turn it to a good (or better) light. --220.127.116.11 (talk) 15:30, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
- I agree completely; it was conducted by email which unfortunately doesn't really give the ability to press for a direct answer, especially as they can just refuse to do the interview with us. However, as you said, it is so obvious that they are taking readers for idiots and I think most people can see that, which in a way answers the questions for both the interviewer and readers. 17:46, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
