The only honest and ethical approach I see open is to talk with VL now. How best to approach this so we don't kill what is going on here is our problem. This board can't hide from VL.

I think the chance of getting any concession or cooperation from VL is nonexistent. TMF tried under similar circumstances, and they had much more to offer. They got nowhere.

There is, on the other hand, considerable risk that such contact would damage what we have. Again, what started with an innocent meeting between TMF and VL to look into opportunities to cooperate resulted in a cease and desist demand by VL.

I think it would be a mistake to approach VL in any way. You have nothing to offer that they want. You have nothing to gain and something to lose.
