So, in Taiwan, we have for more than a decade the freedom of information laws. So at least the FOIA requests, there’s a standard request. The problem being the response to FOIA requests are point to point. So, if as a FOIA requester, I send to five ministries, first, none of them know the other four ministries is responding to this person. And also, if I receive this, but I decide not to share it. It’s the press or anyone else that they don’t know either. And so, they will make more FOIA requests. So, this shape creates burden, right? A denial-of-service attack, essentially.
