BUMP discovered from Friday TV's server (used by its legal counsel) evidence of agreement files created in Swedish language by Metronome and Friday TV's Legal Counsel Eva-Lotta Almkvist, a Rights acquisition agreement with Friday TV and a Royalty / Profit Share Agreement with BUMP:

file:///w:// Metronome / Agreement / Agreement Documentation / BUMP / MINUTE WINNER - MINUTE TO WIN IT - You got one minute to win it!
file:///w:// Metronome / Agreement / Agreement Documentation / FRIDAY TV AB / MINUTE WINNER - You got one minute to win it!

Jock Millgårdh and his co-founders of Friday TV, and Metronome, acknowledged BUMP's rights to Minute To Win It, their Legal Counsel drafted the agreement files.

Metronome' s Swedish lawyers Caroline von Heidenstam and Lena Franstedt Lofalk, at Swedish law firm Nord Och Co Ab (now called Kanter Advokatbyrå) attempted to hide the agreement files and started an abusive legal dispute, using "copyright" as a pretext so Friday TV and Metronome would avoid to pay royalties for more than 20 million dollars to BUMP for Minute To Win It. They deliberately chose to commit fraud against BUMP, which is a serious violation and an abusive tactic. 

The three founders of Fridady TV, Jock Millgårdh, Matias Olssn, Estelle Bodén, and their Legal counsel Eva-Lotta Almkvist, resigned in protest from Metronome and Endemol Shine. 

In a letter of 7 February 2019 Endemol Shine Group's lawyer in London, Caroline Kean, confirmed that Friday TV's Legal Counsel eva-Lotta Almkvist downloaded from BUMP's website files which "she preserved for use in evidence". The two downloaded files had the title and catchphrase "Minute Winner - Minute To Win It - You got one minute to win it", the same title and catchphrase used by Friday TV and NBC for Minute To Win It. And as shown in the above evidence of the agreement files BUMP discovered from Friday TV's servers, Friday TV's Legal Counsel used the two downloaded files as "Documentation" (evidence) in the agreement files she created between BUMP and Friday TV. 

Friday TV and Metronome paid royalties to Swedish choir leader Caroline af Ugglas on the basis of choir leader´s verbal idea, which Jock Millgårdh and Matias Olsson developed and sold to NBC. The choir competition TV show, "Clash of the choirs" ("Körslaget") was later sold to seventeen territories. Swedish Caroline af Ugglas was acknowledged as the copyright owner of the verbal idea and was paid royalties and profit share of the program without dispute. No hidden agreement files.

There is no justification for the lawyers of Metronome, Friday TV, and Endemol Shine Group to hide the agreement files they created between BUMP and Friday TV and decline to pay royalties to BUMP for Minute To Win It, which has been adapted in seventy territories. Nintendo, Wii, Xbox, Kinect, and Boardgame versions also have been made of the popular gameshow.
