2. Conflict of Interest Disclosure
• I am the founder, CEO, and sole manager of Texifter, LLC.
• Texifter sold DiscoverText to Vision Critical in 2012.
• I profited from the asset sale, as did UMass.
• I stand to profit further from sales of DiscoverText licenses.
• A UMass panel has managed the case from cradle to grave.
• Vision Critical recently sold DiscoverText back to Texifter.
