  • – Hon kom med idén och har en procentuell del av vinsten, säger von Schinkel." http://www.aftonbladet.se/nojesbladet/tv/article11404688.ab

NBC, SHINE GROUP, METRONOME, FRIDAY TV, GSN, TVA NETWORK HAVE NOT PAID LICENSE FEES AND ROYALTIES IN ORDER TO EXPLOIT MINUTE TO WIN IT
These secret contracts were established since 2011 by Metronome, Friday TV's  Scandinavian parent company and Shine Group's subsidiary, and Friday TV's founders Jock Millgårdh, Mattias Olsson, and Estelle Boden (von Schinkel), together with their Head of  Legal Affairs Eva Lota Almqvist.
 
BUMP Productions' founder Derek Banner held a pitch meeting with the three Friday TV's founders in November 2005 and presented the original draft for the game show Minute To Win It. Derek Banner's original title for the show was "Minute Winner - You got one minute to win it (Minute To Win Something).  
The three Friday TV's founders were Executive Producers for Minute To Win It on NBC after they sold the game show to the U.S. broadcaster.
 
Although the secret contracts with BUMP were created with the approval from their lawyers, Friday TV and Shine Group's Swedish law firm in Stockholm, Nord Och Co Ab, urged their clients to hide and suppress all the evidence of these contracts, thereby advising their clients, including the three Friday TV's founders and Head of Legal Affairs Eva Lotta Almqvist, to commit perjury.
 
All three Friday TV's founders and Eva Lotta Almqvist resigned from Friday TV and Shine in 2011 - 2012, shortly after they created the secret contracts with BUMP. The three Friday TV's founders formed in 2012 a new company, ELK ENTERTAINMENT / ELK INTERNATIONAL, where Eva Lotta Almqvist also is employed. 
 
Per Blankens (Olof Ragnar Andreas Blomquist), Swedish, Friday TV's appointed interim CEO, together with Friday TV and Metronome's Swedish lawyers, decided to hide the secret contracts with BUMP in order to avoid paying royalties and a percentage of their profits from Minute To Win It, and they went to the Swedish press and deliberately attempted to discredit BUMP Productions' founder for being a "gold digger who wastes people's time and money". A clear and desperate effort to cause damage to Derek Banner's reputation.
 
These secret contracts reveal that Friday TV and Metronome have committed theft, fraud, and embezzlement for millions of dollars.
 
 
FRIDAY TV HID THE SECRET CONTRACTS FROM THE SWEDISH DISTRICT COURT
 
In 2012 Derek Banner filed in the Swedish district court in Stockholm a lawsuit against Friday TV for trade secrets violations and trademark infringement. 
 
In its ruling of March 3, 2014 the Swedish district court in Stockholm affirmed that BUMP created in 2003 the TV format "Minute Winner", which was presented to Friday TV in 2005. The Stockholms district court also affirmed that BUMP created in 2005 the TV format Luxury Trap.
 
Friday TV's Swedish lawyer, Lena Lofalk, from law firm Nord Och Co., acknowledged in a letter written to BUMP in 2011 that the trademarks "Minute Winner" (from 2003) and "Minute To Win It" (2010) are "confusingly similar".
 
THE SWEDISH DISTRICT COURT, HOWEVER, RULED SOLELY ON TRADE SECRETS AND DECLINED TO RULE ON SWEDISH FRIDAY TV'S TRADEMARKS VIOLATIONS. 
 
THUS, THERE IS NO COURT DECISION WITH REGARD TO FRIDAY TV'S TRADEMARK VIOLATIONS, WHICH HAVE REMAINED UNRESOLVED
 
NEITHER IS THERE A COURT DECISION WITH REGARD TO THE DISCOVERED EVIDENCE OF SECRET CONTRACTS WITH BUMP FROM FRIDAY TV AND METRONOME'S INTERNET SERVERS
 
There has been no hearing of witnesses in the case, as the case was supposed to be decided on the basis of provided evidence by the parties. 
Though not one single piece of evidence was produced by Friday TV with the title and trademark "Minute To Win It", dating from 2005 - 2009, to support their claims that Friday TV created the game show "Minute To Win It".
 
In hiding the secret contracts which they established with BUMP, Friday TV and Metronome have breached Derek Banner's trust and have demonstrated that Shine Group's Scandinavian subsidiaries behave untrustworthy and against all rules.

THE SWEDISH DISTRICT COURT'S DECISION IS SOLELY WITH REGARD TO THE TV PROGRAM MINUTE TO WIN IT. 
 
NO COURT DECISION HAS BEEN ISSUED WITH REGARD TO LUXURY TRAP. 
 
THUS TV3, MTG, METRONOME, AND SHINE GROUP'S VIOLATIONS IN THIS RESPECT CONTINUE AND REMAIN UNRESOLVED.
 
Also as revealed in the evidence below, Friday TV and Metronome's secret contracts with BUMP were created with the approval of their Swedish law firm "Foretagsjuridik Nord Och Co", who has used all sorts of schemes, including abuse of influence, bias, nepotism, to get Derek Banner and BUMP Productions' case dismissed by the Swedish court, and all incriminating evidence against their clients suppressed and hidden. 
 
No appeal has been granted in the case, as the Swedish court has denied Derek Banner and BUMP Productions their rights to appeal, despite clear evidence of miscarriage of justice and the defending parties' abuse. 
 
All appeals, as well as complaints of miscarriage of justice, were filed in due time and before expiring deadline to the Swedish district court and to the court of appeals in Stockholm. 
 
The reasons expressed in the appeals and in the complaints were well validated with compelling evidence, such of the secret contracts with BUMP created by the defending parties, the acknowledgement by the defending parties' lawyers of the "confusingly similar trademarks", the Swedish judge's conflicting and contradicting application of Swedish Trade Secrets Act 1FHL, the court's failure to issue a judgement with regard to trademarks violations, etc. 
 
Because of all the above, the dispute between the parties has not at all been resolved by the Swedish court.

Two years prior to selling Minute To Win It, Friday TV sold to NBC in 2007 the choir contest show "Clash of The Choirs", which was later distributed to 17 countries, and which was based on a verbal idea by Swedish chorister Caroline af  Ugglas. 

Caroline af Ugglas, Swedish, white, has been paid royalties for her verbal idea, and Friday TV informed in the Swedish press: "She came up with the idea and she gets a percentage of profits".

In Derek Banner's case Friday TV and Metronome have decided to discriminate and have deliberately hidden the secret contracts with BUMP in order to avoid to pay royalties and license fees, and a percentage of their profits from Minute To Win It. Derek Banner is not a Swedish national, one of few, if not the only black person in Scandinavia, to own a television format development and production company.

According to Friday TV's founders' own reporting, thanks to the first season of Minute To Win It on NBC in 2010, Friday TV's turnover increased from 500,000 U.S. dollars in 2006 (6 million Swedish Krona) to 5,000,000 U.S. dollars in 2010 (44 million Swedish Krona). 2/3 was pure profit.

Minute To Win It has been adapted in over seventy territories around the world. Nintendo, Wii, Kinect, Xbox, Board game and Card game versions have also been made of the game show, which was proclaimed the world's most sold game show in 2011 and 2012.

Friday TV and Metronome's Danish Lawyer, Kasper Frahm, requested from BUMP a "concrete settlement offer" and asked Derek Banner "How much do you want?", nonetheless all settlement offers have been rejected by Metronome's Swedish lawyer, Lena Lofalk, for no obvious reason, despite all compelling evidence that Friday TV stole the TV format idea of Minute To Win It, despite the drafted secret contracts with BUMP, and despite Lena Lofalk's own acknowledgement that the trademarks are confusingly similar, etc.

 

LUXURY TRAP

Metronome (currently named Shine Nordics) has made the same false claims with regard to BUMP's TV format "LUXURY TRAP". 

In February 2006 Derek Banner presented the original draft of "Luxury Trap" for further development to Metronome's former Head of development Jan Lagermand Lundme, and to TV3's former Head of programming Karoline Spodsberg. 

Derek Banner created the English version of Luxury Trap since 2005 from an original idea and draft in Danish language by Anita Lauridsen Banner, a former bank employee at Danish Amagerbanken. READ MORE ON LUXURY TRAP.

 

Our French version of "Minute Winner - Minute To Win It" with our exact same original title from 2006 "UNE MINUTE POUR GAGNER" is used in Canada since 2013 by TVA Network, who is airing the French version of Minute To Win It. BUMP and Derek Banner have not been paid royalties and license fees.
