Depends what you name the databases, honestly. Never underestimate the
power of the belief in
confidentiality (paranoia to the rest of us) inherent in certain
industries - actual advantage
gained means nothing compared to the perception thereof. I do much work
in the financial and
environmental industries - you can't spit without offending a lawyer
(particularly in the environmental
space. The lawyers are the only ones who make any money...).
