When a company in Florida begins to experience periods of financial difficulty, it could decide to pursue relief by entering a business relationship with another party. Should a company feel the other party failed to uphold the terms set forth in their agreement, it may wish to take steps to protect its business interests. Fulltime Fantasy Sports has recently filed a lawsuit against CBS Interactive, accusing the company of breach of contract.
Fulltime and CBS Interactive initially entered into a business arrangement after CBS purchased most of the assets for Scout Media after the company filed for bankruptcy. Since Fulltime operates under the Scout Fantasy brand, the company says it entered a deal with CBS to promote its services. In this deal, the company claims it was entitled to a certain portion of revenue from subscriptions and advertising.
However, Fulltime asserts that the other company began reducing the amount of these payments and eventually stopped providing them entirely. It also claims the other party continues to promote related services and lists Scout Media as one of its own brands. Fulltime has filed a lawsuit accusing the company of breach of contract and trademark infringement.
Upon entering a business arrangement, the contract between two or more parties can be a complex document. Those who feel as though a breach of contract has occurred may wish to protect their companies, and they could choose to speak with an attorney for advice on how best to approach the situation. An attorney can review the incident thoroughly and assist a client in Florida in pursuing the restitution entitled through the necessary outlets.
