Well, I could have been more precise and detailed, but I think Mark may
have downplayed the context of what I was saying. For a retail chain or any
company with significant market share, antitrust considerations can be a
major issue: for these, managers' going to each other's place of business
or meeting elsewhere *can be* the first step toward an antitrust violation
(which again, as both Mark and I have said, is about agreement and not
about simple awareness). For a Mom-and-Pop store or for a freelancer,
antitrust considerations are irrelevant.
