It can be a cruel world sometimes... but then again it can things can also turn around in a matter of days.
Our lawyer proceeded to inform Strategy First of their breach of contract (the breach being that they filed for bankruptacy). However it turns out that SF persuaded the Canadian courts (under which the contract is based) to ensure that a moratorium preventing termination was granted.
In English this means that we can't terminate the agreement under the clause that's supposed to be there to ensure that we can terminate the agreement if one of the parties goes bankrupt... go figure!
So. Just to update everyone, Strategy First are not
in breach of their contract with us (they have even started paying us some money now - not a huge amount, but enough for a 'day out' racing a Porsche (Mark & Chris) vs a Corvette (Tom and John) on route 1 in San Francisco
(which wasn't as expensive as you might think) ).
But in a strange twist of negotiations there's going to be an interesting announcement about Uplink in the next couple of months...
Thanks for all your help. I'll keep you posted...
