Ancient wisdom about market share?

群雄割拠
gun.yuu.ka-.kkyo

Literally: group – masculine/hero/leader – divide – basis

Alternately: Many rival warlords, each controlling their own territory and vying for supremacy. A given field seeing multiple people of great ability, influence, or power – possibly competing for dominance. A time of heroes and leaders.

Because of course the Warring States period.

About Confanity

I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
