Hi Yann,

Thanks Kul for your message.

My pleasure. I appreciate that you're asking all these questions, and
they're good questions. It's important that we continue to do things the
right way.

This must have gotten misinterpreted somewhere. Nothing changes about the
content. No company or governement should control or influence the content
and we're not making any deals, partnerships or some secret "eye-winking"
arrangements in any manner to allow that to happen.
