If your company does not win the contract, it would probably go to a foreign competitor. What would you do? What course of action would you take: (a) refuse to pay; (b) pay, but consider it unethical; (c) pay, and consider it ethical?

Situation #2: You learn that a competitor has made an important discovery.
