I have no doubt about that, Illrigger. It would be smart business sense to negotiate all of that on the part of both parties. However, that does not mean the parties cannot let us know they are in negotiations. VTT is a growing market. I think Paizo should be focusing on it better than they have been doing. Roll20 is the largest Pathfinder VTT by far. I don't think they are going to want to ignore that sector, but stranger things have happened in business.
Actually, it kinda does mean they cannot let you know. No (successful) business ever is going to publicise who they are currently in negotiations with as it can a) damage current business relationships and b) shift the balance of power in other, ongoing negotiations.
If what you are advocating worked, then there would never be such secrecy surrounding tender processes, etc.
I'm not an FG user; all my VTT time is on Roll20, but your posts appear to simply be bashing FG and all their hard work, purely on the premise that you 'think' Paizo aren't in talks with Roll20. I would suggest opening your own thread, and discussing that matter there.
