When it all falls apart!

Fuck! Sometimes that is all you can say. Fuck!

Well I thought we were on our way to licensing a product when the other side decided that we were "negotiating" too much.

At first I thought it was a case of over lawyering a contract on our part, but now I am not so sure.

When we got our first set of samples, we found a few defects in them, but rather than tell the manufacturer to go blow (as in your product sucks), we told them what the problem was and gave them an opportunity to rectify it. We had a little faith in the other side, apparently that was a mistake

Now the manufacturer complains that we are being to concerned with the details of the contract and that this process has been going on too long (about a month and a half). Keeping in mind that the manufacturer told us that the last deal they cut took 3 months to do.

My thinking is that the manufacturer just wants to handle North American distribution on their own, but doesn't have the guts to say it.

Well what to do? What to do? The biggest problem when you come across what you think is a hot product is that it consumes you, kinda like when you start dating a cute girl with perky boobs.

Then things end, and you think that no one will ever be able to take her place...........until the blonde with the nice ass walks by! In other words, there is always another deal, another product, you just have to keep your eyes open and trade through the pain!
