@Johncdvorak These companies pull this shit all the time. Government paid research leads to something useful. Those people then have to pitch it to their bosses and politicians to get more money. Politicians take the info and give it to their buddies, who then make it third party and sell it back to the government. Just a bunch of douchebag scam artists taking advantage of us workers. My brother has a few of these stories, goes the same way every time. It's sickening.
