I don't think I can attribute the statement to him, because the meeting
was under Chatham House rules IIRC, but there aren't many lawyers in
London who specialise in these licenses. I certainly don't know who the
clients he referred to are, though.

This meeting was the BCS OSSG meeting on a new license, and I wrote
notes on that meeting to this list at the time (25th July, 2007 -
according to the archive, you even read them ;) - I didn't name him then
either, so I assume my memory about the meeting rules is/was correct.
Other members of this list were there also, though, and can correct me
if they dare :o>
