Pandora Media IPO
Pandora filed some interesting contracts, including a Web Site Music Agreement with BMI.
From Justia: License and Sponsorship Agreement between the Atlanta National League Baseball Club, Inc. and EZ-Media Inc., dated March 13, 2006.
The Cleveland Browns Football Co. LLC sued Telantis Group Corp. for not paying license fees pursuant to a private suite license agreement. $90,000 for a private suite, and that doesn’t even include the cost of game tickets!
Earlier this week, the SEC revoked the registration of FinancialWeb.com, Inc. for failing to file required periodic reports with the Commission. When did FinancialWeb.com last file a quarterly or annual report? That would be Fall 2000. Almost seven years ago. No rush to judgment here.
I added FinancialWeb.com contracts to the website. All the contracts are old I know. Additionally, the year 2000 was a different era for Internet companies and stocks. You will find all the classic contracts that dot.com companies signed, such as a domain purchase agreement, a “novelty” web site purchase agreement (how else do you describe SlugFest.com?), and all the various content licensing agreements to fill out a new website.
What are the problems confronting Major League Baseball? Steroids and amphetamines? Those certainly have made the news as of late, and not in a good way either. Well, during this baseball off-season, I received an email from counsel for the Major League Baseball Players Association. And, the #1 problem in Major League Baseball is the disclosure of the Players Association contract with the Topps Company. I hope this problem doesn’t keep anyone out of the Hall of Fame. Here it goes:
We are licensing enforcement counsel for the Major League Baseball Players Association. We do not know how you obtained a copy of the agreement between the PA and Topps, but that is a confidential document. The Players Association demands that you remove this document from your web page and any other place you have it available immediately, and that you destroy any copies of the agreement that are in your possession. Please confirm receipt of this message and that you will comply immediately.
If you want to see what a “confidential” document looks like, here’s the Agreement between The Topps Company, Inc. and the Major League Baseball Players Association. Not exactly sure what confidential terms remain after Topps stripped out the financial terms and requested confidential treatment from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. For those keeping track, The Topps Company is a publicly-traded company. You can find Topps Company contracts with other sports associations on our website as well.
As for how we obtained a copy of the agreement, let’s just say we got it from a source in the federal government. No, not Lewis Scooter Libby. 😉
