Introduction and Author's Background

It might be useful to know that I am a former securities attorney, Wall Street lawyer, inventor, antitrust litigator, author, and creator of this family of websites collectively referred to as, and I have an extended business background (having founded, financed and run a business for 18 years, and a law practice since 1968). For the c.v. (resume) of Attorney Carl E. Person, click on Carl Person C.V.

With this background, I see things which no insider has been heard to say. I'm not the only one who sees what is going on, but my clients and I are the only persons I know who are revealing to the public what is taking place. [See list of websites below and their contents.]

Before saying what is happening, I want to set forth some basic alleged facts which I believe are incontrovertible, and are an essential foundation for the discussion to follow these basic facts.

What is new, in many instances, is something which has existed for a long time but has not been recognized for what it is, because of the absence of necessary facts which would lead one to recognize what it really is.

For 30 plus years I have been working with the Robinson-Patman Act and other federal statutes regulating business, such as the Sherman Act, the Clayton Act, and the trademark, copyright and patent statutes.

Also, since 1968 I have been in business either as a self-employed lawyer and/or as the owner and C.E.O. of a business.

My lengthy experience in business as well as the regulation of business makes me fairly well qualified to draw conclusions, and I will admit that some of my conclusions below have been drawn in the year 2002, months of February and March.

The alleged facts needed to draw my conclusions are:
