The agreement was a celebrity endorsement agreement. In the body of teh contract it clearly defines the term as 1 yr from when the website goes live, however in the Attachment which defines the obligations on the endorsement period, it just has a line which says Initial Endorsement term April2011-May2013 something like that. I can share an attachment if that will help better see this.
I see. Thank you for the detailed explanation. The glitch here is that even though we may have had meeting of minds when this was signed, now the celeb wants to back out from the responsibility by saying that the term expired (whether genuinely assuming that or using that error in there to bring that up), we did offer to work with them but if it doesnt work, we might have to file suit. So I wanted to get some better knowledge of how that will work.
