We consider multiple-principal multiple-agent games of incomplete information in which
each agent can at most participate with one principal. In such contexts, we show that the
restriction to direct truthful mechanisms involves a loss of generality, even if one only focuses
on pure strategy equilibria. However, the traditional Revelation Principle retains its
power in games with a single agent.
