They approached us with a new license on December 5th and although we
have licensed this product since 1999, and are actively reaching out
to them on a daily basis, in the course of one week they have refused
to further engage the negotiator, rescinded the new license, and cut
off access to the product in an effort to force their terms.
Seven years of negotiating contracts and I've never seen anything quite like it.
