  1. Great Q/A session Erik and Seth. learned a lot. It is a small world. I have known Erik from the Arlington area, and Seth from his involvement at World Bank. Now, I get to listen to two of you talking about trademark etc. Great job. Looking forward to more interesting information.

    Cheers … DB
