Jordi,

This seems like an ingenious, noble plan.

Please let us know how it goes.

If I don't fulfill my commitment, I will lose the contracts, the customers, will not be paid for what I'd already done, and probably, will need to pay some compensation, that easily can bring me to bankruptcy.

And I've been already in that situation a couple of times and I survived. If I don't survive, but luck, (I will not know it anymore), and meanwhile I did what it was my obligation to do and I was happy.

I've already fought in courts several times against Spanish government or public institutions, even in the Constitutional court, with some degree of success, some cases still open, some laws changed with my personal fight and unfortunately also some cases lost (but you also learnt from that).
