Yes, this point is very clearly for me. At this point there is no contradiction.

But let me explain with an example:

If the national company ABC (formally named "ABC Deutschland GmbH") issues a press
release, then is a press release of "ABC Deutschland GmbH", which was also written
by "ABC Deutschland GmbH". Nevertheless, this is no press release against the
interests of ABC (formally "ABC international").

And I think we are for the distant future (not for now) local press releases for
AOO need. By that I mean local press releases written by the national communities
eg de-AOO or fr-AOO or .... ("de-AOO" is only my word for 'german AOO community').
