Re: [802SEC] Indemnification memo

In principal I agree with Bob but not with the memo as written.  Either the 
examples should be removed or more realistic examples included. If examples 
are to be included, I would also like reference made to corporate venture 
arms which have significant investment in privately held companies making 
those companies and their voters beholding to the position of the investing 
corporation and reference made on the potential of manipulation on the part 
of companies who may have a significant buying relationship with another 
company, again giving the buying company the potential of controlling its 
vendor. Potential abuse through consultants pales in comparison to these 
far more efficient forms of manipulation and abuse.  Only citing potential 
consultant abuse and ignoring the rest is degrading to this class and 
unfair in my view.  Lets either cite the significant areas of potential 
abuse or cite none and talk only of the indemnification policy and behavior.
