Subject: Re: Billy Corgan

I merely was requesting that the signature on the Corgan contract be

affixed to the document that many very esteemed council have also

failed to get , even though it is fully agreed upon, just as I have.

also : prior to your tenure at the Motion Picture Bond , I advised

that no elements be sent out of the country to Al Dickerson , who

represented the production for the MPB, without there being strict

written limits agreed to in writing by those that would have control

of the elements in distant countries, which included the choice of

the songs. This I have in writing. The Bond company also reviewed

the licenses and signed off on them when they were delivered. And

then delivered said licenses to my office. As to the cost of the

licenses , it is well known that there had been an understanding that

a couple tracks of Billy Corgan’s were includable in a Soundtrack,

which turned out to not be the case –which the Producers did not

have control of.

I was not trying to be facetious: I was quite seriously requesting a

signature , and noted my concern was based on the release date of the

film. I also was not being facetious in my indication tion I

understood that Billy Corgan and his associates were very fond of

Spun as there were a few directo conversations with his associates

who clearly stated this. His contract by the way shows he is a fan of

Jonas and the film , because the terms are most reasonable.

Also I offered to have a face to face meeting anywhere in the world

for several weeks now in order to close the matter of the as yet

unexecuted contract. I represent also the distributors of the film

and should not be blamed for stating factual delivery schedules that

contain deadlines. I provided information to all parties that a

deadline was imminent some time ago , and again received rancor for

informing fact.

I will thank you heartily when all the aforementioned efforts show

that an agreement on the music rights remaining is realized, as you

would deserve.
