FRIDAY TV HID THE SECRET CONTRACTS FROM THE SWEDISH COURT
In its ruling of March 3, 2014 the Swedish District court in Stockholm affirmed that BUMP Productions created in 2003 the TV format "Minute Winner", which was presented to Friday TV in 2005.
THE SWEDISH DISTRICT COURT RULED SOLELY ON TRADE SECRETS AND DECLINED TO RULE ON TRADEMARKS VIOLATIONS, WHICH ARE STILL UNRESOLVED.
Friday TV's Swedish lawyer, Lena Lofalk, acknowledged in a letter written to BUMP Productions in 2011 that the trademarks "Minute winner" (from 2003) and "Minute To It" (2010) are "confusingly similar". The Swedish district court declined to rule on Swedish Friday TV's trademarks violations.
In November 2005 Derek Bannr presented the original draft for Minute To Win It for further development to the Swedish format company Friday TV's founders: Jock Millgårdh, Mattias Olsson, and Estelle Boden. Derek Banne's original title for the show was "Minute Winner - You got one minute to win it". In 2009 Friday TV sold the fully developed show to NBC, who aired the show the first time as Minute To Win It on March 14, 2010. All three Friday TV's founders were Executive Producers for the show on NBC. Minute To Win It has since been adapted in over 70 territories around the world. Board game, Nintendo, Xbox, Kinect versions have also been made of the successful game show, which was proclaimed World's most sold game show in 2011 and 2012.
Two years prior to selling Minute To Win It, Friday TV sold to NBC in 2007 the choir contest show called "Clash Of The Choirs, which later was sold to 17 countries, and which was based on a verbal idea by Swedish chorister and singer Caroline af Ugglas.
Caroline af Ugglas, who is a Swedish national, has been paid royalties for her verbal idea of "Clash Of The Choirs". Friday TV declared in the Swedish press: "She came up with the idea and she gets a percentage of profits".
In Derek Banner's case, however, Friday TV and Metronome (Shine Nordics) have chosen to discriminate. They have deliberately chosen to hide the contracts which they established with Derek Banner's company, BUMP, in order not to pay royalties and license fees, and a percentage of their profits from Minute To Win It.
Derek Banner, who is not a Swedish national, the true creator of the original idea behind Minute To Win It, has deliberately been overlooked and ripped off by Friday TV and its parent company Metronome (Shine Nordics). He has not been paid royalties, despite the established contracts by Friday TV.
As also revealed in the evidence below, the secret contracts were created with the approval of Metronome's Swedish law firm "Foretagsjuridik Nord Och Co".
Metronome has made the same false claims with regard to Luxury Trap, which BUMP Productions presented since February 2006 for further development to Metronome / Shine Nordics' former Head of development Jan Lagermand Lundme and to former Head of programming Karoline Spodsberg at TV3 and Modern Times Goup UK LTD.
The above facts are supported with numerous written evidence, including signed contract, original drafts, Email correspondence, used trademarks, etc.
Because of Metronome and Friday TV's abuse, BUMP Productions' intellectual properties and trademarks, such as "Luxury Trap" and "Minute To Win It", have been infringed by third parties worldwide, including in the US, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, Canada, India, China, etc
Our French version of "Minute Winner - Minute To Win It" with our original French title "UNE MINUTE POUR GAGNER" is being used in Canada since 2013 by TVA Network, who is airing the French version of Minute To Win It.
The district court in Stockholm affirmed in its decision of March 3, 2014 that "BUMP created in 2005 the TV format Luxury Trap". The Stockholm's district court also affirmed in its decision that "BUMP created in 2003 and presented to Friday TV the original draft of the game show Minute Winner".
Lena Frånstedt Lofalk, Metronome and Friday TV's Swedish attorney, acknowledged in 2011 that BUMP Productions trademark " Minute Winner" from 2003 and her client's "Minute To Win It" trademark from 2010 are "confusingly similar", which entails that her clients Friday TV, Shine, and Metronome, including NBC in the U.S. and others, are infringing on BUMP Productions' trademark.
Despite settlement requests from Friday TV and Metronome's Danish attorney Kasper Frahm, and BUMP Productions' issued proposals, Friday TV and Metronome continue to abuse their dominant position and to exploit BUMP Productions' work, illicitly and dishonestly registering BUMP Productions' trademarks in their own name.
No license rights have been legally acquired by Friday TV, NBC, or Shine to exploit MINUTE TO WIN IT
