ETHICS: PATENTLY RIGHT?

You are the CEO of a start up company that has developed a promising new concept for an electric car. You are struggling to find the money to commercialise your product. A major automobile manufacturing company has made you a very attractive offer to purchase the patent.

You know that the auto company is heavily subsidised by the tax payer and has reported losses the last four quarters. You are aware that the company has bought other alternative energy patents to close down the competition.

What do you do?
It is proposed that you sell the patent
