Randy,
 
I'll have to review the Suretone agreement again and get back to you. I don't think it was all of the content, but rather content they were going to provide for the MD file push purposes. The other content, as in the video channels, was to be used only for the video channel. We might have some flexibility with them though. On our content, we have tried to stay away from making our content available in any format that we cannot gain revenue from, as we have the copyrights to the content. But there's likely a handful of those that we could have out there and you all could use for the new site. So, I'll put together a few of these for you to use next week. How does that sound? Thanks.
 
- Michael

        Hi Michael
        
        Which channels do we have the rights to put out mpgs. If it is just suretone and artd that is ok too. We mainly want a little licensed content on the front of miivi to fight the spyware pr being pushed by the bit torrent sites.

        Ben,
        
        The video channels are meant to only be used on the ARTISTdirect.com site. The content there is not intended for distribution through other means, with the exception of the deals that have been worked out previously, such as Suretone. In our current agreements, distribution through another means is not included. It's really an advertising revenue share model. These videos are not in .mpg format, but obviously could be converted. I hope that helps to explain. Thanks.
        
        - Michael

                Michael,
               
                Does ArtistDirect have the right to distribute the videos on the Video Channels through any of its subsidiaries? We're wondering what video channels' content MediaDefender would be able to distribute through its video sharing site, once that site goes live. Do you have all the videos that we'd be allowed to distribute in .mpg format?
               
                Thanks,
                Ben
