Book Scam Targets Porn Talent - The Contract
Source: Letters to the Editor
by: Company Press Release

Here is the contract provided by Samantha38G referred to in the story "Book Scam Targets Porn Talent" along with some of her comments continued from that story. Damn! This guy didn't even bother to use spellcheck! -Ed.

Samantha writes:

Oh, the part about how he gets all the money by Jan.5, 2006, but has 12 months to print it and all kinds of reasons for how he is not held liable if he doesn't. Or I have 48 hours to pick the books up. So guess drop everything you are doing and rush up there. Wonder what happens when you cross the border with 2000 books? What about duty and taxes? No mention of those.

And he owns all printing copyrights in foreign languages and movie/TV rights? Not to mention no address on the contract to send anything to. No address for the warehouse where you pick up these books. And 50% of all booking fee from lectures and appearances, so I guess any show you attend he get 50% whether or not you are promoting or trying to sell the books you got stuck with. No mention of how you will know how many of the books he sells to the retailers. So many holes in this contract and I am not even a lawyer.

Thanks for helping me in this matter.
Smooches Sam
