Dave: Wang Trading is making knockoffs of ourwatches and selling them. I say we tell them rightaway to stop, or we'll take them to court. Do I haveeveryone's support on this? Bob?
Bob: You have my full backing, Dave. If we don'tshow everyone that we'll hurt them when they do these things, other
companies will start to make more knockoffs later.
Mary: I'm sorry, but I think that's just what we shouldn't do. We'd need to use Vietnam's laws;we all know that the government there won't help a Taiwanese company fight a Vietnamesecompany.
Dave: I see your point, but we need to punish them, and let others see us punishing them, sonobody else will ever try the same thing.
Mary: Companies have tried that many, many times before -- it never works. If we stop thiscompany, there will just be another company that will do the same thing. If there is a chance formaking profits, someone will try it.
Bob: We're cutting our own throats if we don't do something. Are you saying we should justdo nothing?
Mary: Not at all. What I'm saying is that the knockoffs are being sold in a market that ourwatches aren't sold in. If we want to stop others from selling knockoffs, we should get into thismarket ourselves.

2. Do I have your full support on this?
3. Is everyone with me on this?
4. Is everyone in agreement on this?
"support someone on something"的意思是‘支持某人对某事的看法’。这句话常用于陈述己见之后，征求他人支持的用语。请注意这里用"support me"而非"support this idea"，用意在于突显个人;因为在公开场合中，拒绝人远比拒绝意见来得困难。
1. You have my full backing on this.
2. I'm fully behind you on this.

在正式会议中，除非事关重大，否则较少出现强硬的反对或否决的措词。一来是与会者本应保持接受各种意见的宽容态度，二来是工作场合中应显出冷静的风度;是故用保留、婉转的口气来否定他人的提议或意见是开会必学的课程。"I see your point, but..."即是个实用的句型，先表示了解对方所言，接着利用"but"提出其它的方案。
