AGREEMENTS - METRONOME - FRIDAY TV - BUMP
Starting a legal dispute and hiding agreement files to avoid to pay over $20 million in royalty is an abusive tactic and not a way to do business.
The three founders of Friday TV, Jock Millgårdh, Estelle Bodén, Mattias Olsson, together with Metronome's head of legal and business affairs Eva-Lotta Almkvist, created agreements with BUMP, acknowledging BUMP's rights to "Minute To Win It". BUMP discovered evidence of the agreement files in Swedish language, created between Metronome, Friday TV, and BUMP, one Rights acquisition and one Royalty and Profit Share Agreements:
file:///w:// Metronome / Agreement / Agreement Description / BUMP / MINUTE WINNER - MINUTE TO WIN IT - You got one minute to win it!
file:///w:// Metronome / Agreement / Agreement Description / FRIDAY TV AB / MINUTE WINNER - You got one minute to win it!
Metronome's lawyers Lena Frånstedt Lofak and Caroline von Heidenstam, at Swedish law firm NORD Och Co Ab (now called Kanter Advokatbyrå), decided to withhold and hide the agreement files to prevent Friday TV and Metronome from acknowledging BUMP's rights and from paying royalties and profit share for Minute To Win It. Instead, they started a legal dispute, which prompted an internal conflict within Metronome and Endemol Shine and the three founders of Friday TV, Jock Millgårdh, Estelle Bodén, and Mattias Olsson, with head of legal Eva-Lotta Almkvist, were forced to resign.
Friday TV and Metronome previously established a profit share and royalty agreement with Caroline af Ugglas, a Swedish choir leader whose verbal idea was developed and sold to NBC by Jock Millgårdh and Mattias Olsson. The choir competition TV show, "Clash of the choirs" ("Körslaget"), was later sold to seventeen territories. Caroline af Ugglas did not receive threats from Metronome's lawyers Lena Frånstedt Lofak and Caroline von Heidenstam, contrary to their letter to Derek Banner in which they threatened Derek Banner with: "all your activities will be closely monitored". Caroline af Ugglas did not have her telephone tapped or her private life violated. She was not called "Lycksökare", Swedish word for "gold digger", contrary to their explicit attempt to tarnish Derek Banner's name and image in the Swedish press.
Caroline af Ugglas' rights to her verbal idea were respected by Metronome, Friday TV, and their lawyers Lena Frånstedt Lofak and Caroline von Heidenstam. She is being paid royalties for her verbal idea and she receives a profit share of "Clash of the choirs" without legal dispute or court battle.
The actions of lawyers Lena Frånstedt Lofak and Caroline von Heidenstam towards Derek Banner and BUMP were motivated by racial and ethnic bias, with the sole intent to commit fraud against Derek Banner and his company.
There is no justification whatsoever for Lena Frånstedt Lofak and Caroline von Heidenstam starting a legal dispute with Derek Banner and BUMP and hiding the agreement files, which irrefutable evidence Derek Banner have uncovered.
There is absolutely no justification whatsoever for Metronome, Friday TV, Endemol Shine, and their lawyers Lena Frånstedt Lofak and Caroline von Heidenstam not to respect Derek Banner and BUMP's rights to Minute To Win It gameshow proposal to Friday TV,
There is absolutely no justification whatsoever for Metronome, Friday TV, Lena Frånstedt Lofak and Caroline von Heidenstam forging documents with the intent to produce false evidence and to deceive Derek Banner and BUMP with regard to Luxury Trap, "Lyxfällan", which is another Derek Banner's proposal to Metronome, Friday TV, and TV3 VIASAT (Nordic Entertainment Group), and which Metronome, Endemol Shine, and TV3 Channels are currently exploiting for twenty-six seasons without license or payment to Derek Banner and BUMP.
There is absolutely no justification whatsoever for the legal team of Endemol Shine and lawyers Lena Frånstedt Lofak and Caroline von Heidenstam ignoring settlement requests from their Danish colleagues.
The actions of lawyers Lena Frånstedt Lofak and Caroline von Heidenstam, and their handling of the matter, are a result of poor judgement and are irresponsible, unprofessional, unethical, dishonest, deeply concerning, and fully unacceptable and must be rejected and condemned by everyone.
BUMP hereby reiterates its call to the officials of Metronome and Endemol Shine to resolve this matter and pay for BUMP's successful work.
