I think one of things that we really need to do is get people who are signing leases to understand that they can make stipulations. They can say things in their lease about what they do and don’t want. I think that the oil companies are a lot more amenable to signing those things, and giving people what they want. But people don’t know that they can do that. And the oil and gas company certainly isn’t going to tell them. So if there was more transparency, and if they might say, you know, “These are things you might want to consider,” without having to go to an attorney before you do that, and spend lots of money, because people don’t have the money. A lot of times, that’s why they’re signing the lease– is for the money part of it.
