Personally, I think this is a bad idea, because no matter what any one
of us comes up with, and it could take countless hours of work, could
essentially amount to nothing in the end based on what the legal truth
is.

Instead of leaving chickens to peck around in the dust and not know what
we are doing, we just need to ask counsel and get an answer--point
blank.

It's not that I think you're wrong Luis, your intentions are in the
right place.  But I feel like we would waste so much time and energy
looking this up and possibly come up with the wrong outcome.
