Comment (by Ipstenu):

 > Think for the most part, the issue here is individual plugins changing
 hands and not companies and/or portfolios of multiple plugins being
 brought ( but you guys probably have more insight here ).

 With regards to all plugins? Yes, it's more individuals than companies,
 however if you asked me to break it down by plugin 'type' I would say that
 more '''serviceware''' plugins are transfered to companies and don't
 always change hands in an obvious way.

 I want to be clear, I'm not against this! I'm for this! I just want to be
 clear that we're going to get MAYBE half of the changes. (Honestly I think
 it would be great if everyone could see how weird some devs are about
 shuffling plugins between multiple accounts -- that gets them banned when
 we catch them)
