Re: Even Password Management tools can cause problems.
@TerryB: Your tale/experiences remind me of an incident a few years ago when some disgruntled (possibly former...I don't quite recall) Coca-Cola employees stole and offered to sell the secret Coca-Cola recipe to Pepsi.
Pepsi played along -- while immediately contacting Coca-Cola and the FBI. They all set up a sting to catch and arrest the Coca-Cola IP thieves.
And, of course, it wouldn't really have benefited Pepsi to take the deal in the first place. There's a terrific economic analysis on why Pepsi buying and somehow leveraging Coca-Cola's formula would have only hurt both companies in the long run -- driving them to RTTB brinksmanship. The blogger explains it better than I can, and his piece can be read here: freakonomics.com/2006/07/07/how-much-would-pepsi-pay-to-get-cokes-secret-formula/
