GROUNDS FOR RECONSIDERATION


1. The PETITIONER first requests the Court to consider that including the Lancaster County Court of Common
Pleas and the Pennsylvania Superior Court, the PETITIONER has not had any challenge to the original mortgage
foreclosure (Case No. CI-06-02271) ruling based upon the pleadings or the merits of the PETITIONERS issues
and arguments . A similar record is found in the Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas cases CI-07-00366
and CI-07-00119 where the mortgage foreclosure is central to the complaint. The PETITIONER will raise the
following unprecedented issues as to the reasons why this Court must consider due process and the inherent
implications to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The ORDER of July 6 Denying the PETITIONERS Allowance
for Appeal should be RECONSIDERED
Commonwealth v. Haggentstaller, 699 A. 2d 767 (Pa Superior, 1997), Pro Se Appellant sought review of
Conviction for violation of County for violation of County ordinance with Rule of Appellant Procedure, court
conducted a thorough, independent review of the record, and found sufficient evidence to sustain the
conviction.
Hempfield Township v. Hapchuck 153 Pa. Comwlth. 173620 A. 2d. 668 (1993) Pro Se Brief failed to comply with
Pa. Rules of Appellate Procedure, but the failure to comply did not substantially impede the Courts ability to
review the issues presented and therefore considered the merits of the case
In Pederson v. South Williamsport Area School District, the courts interpreted due process, as Essentially
fundamental fairness is exactly what due process means. Furthermore, the United States District Courts in Perry
v. Coyler (1978, 524 F 2d. 644) have concluded the following: Even the probability of unfairness can result in a
defendant being deprived of his due process rights.
Under Pennsylvania Law, conspiracy may be proved by circumstantial evidence that is by acts and
circumstances sufficient to warrant an inference that the unlawful combination has been in front of facts formed
for the purpose charged. See Walcker v. North Wales Boro, 395 F. Supp. 2d. 219. In the same case the following
was supported: Arrestees allegations that the township (Conestoga) and its police officers were acting in
concert and conspiracy and with the purpose of violating arrestees constitutional rights by subjecting him to
unreasonable force, arrest, search, and malicious prosecution and the two (2) or more officers acted together in
throwing arrestee to the ground (April 5th, 2006 and August 4th, 2006) and forcing him to take two (2) blood tests
and holding him in custody. The preceding pleaded civil conspiracy claims under Pennsylvania Law.
1983 Civil Rights Acts and 18 U.S.C.A. Acts state the following: The underlying purpose of the scheme of
protecting constitutional rights are to permit victims of constitutional violations to obtain redress, to provide for
federal prosecution of serious constitutional violations when state criminal proceedings are ineffective for
purpose of deterring violations and to strike a balance between protection of individual rights from state
infringement and protection from state and local government from federal interference, 18 U.S.C.A. 241, 242;
U.S.C.A. Const. Art. 2, 53; Amend. 13, 14, 5, 15, 2: 42 U.S.C.A. 1981-1982, 1985, 1988, Fed. Rules Civil Proc.

The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (commonly referred to as RICO) is a United States
federal law which provides for extended penalties for criminal acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal
organization. RICO was enacted by section 901(a) of the Organized Crime Control Act of 1970, Pub. L. No. 91-452,
84 Stat. 922 (Oct. 15, 1970). RICO is codified as Chapter 96 of Title 18 of the United States Code, 18 U.S.C. 1961

through 18 U.S.C. 1968

2. The PETITIONER is the subject of an unprecedented attack of intimidation, retaliation, and harassment
resulting in one of the direst cases of obstruction of justice mounted in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and
the County of Lancaster . The prosecutorial misconduct and judicial misconduct is unprecedented in both the
scope of activity and motive. The PETITIONER will show cause that these activities are to disrupt, deter, and
undermine the PETITIONERS Constitutional right to due process and access to the Courts .
3. These activities, when effectively reviewed and examined, will prove to be the reason that the PETITIONER has
difficulty filing any appeals on a timely basis, and any court related filing without technical difficulties. The
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, at large, has legal and financial exposure with regards to the PETITIONERS
Federal False Claims Act and Whistle-Blowing activities in the case of International Signal & Control, Plc, (ISC)
that
dates
back
to
1987.
4. Since the PETITIONER filed his complaint in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of
Pennsylvania (Case No. 05-2288), these activities were increased in both occurrences and arrogance. It must be
noted that the PETITIONER had a previous attempt at justice thwarted in 1998. The same issues that were never
formally presented in any United States District Court, or any Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court, are now at
issue.
5. On Thursday, July 5, 2007, it was publicly disclosed that a United States District Court Judge, Judge Sean
McLaughlin, granted Lisa Michelle Lambert her right to a jury trial regarding a sexual abuse case that dates back
to 1996. These allegations were previously dismissed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as frivolous and
without merit. Judge McLaughlin, similar to the findings of United States District Judge Stuart Dalzall, found
otherwise and stated "Plaintiff paints a disturbing picture," McLaughlin wrote, saying Lambert alleged
Cambridge Springs was a "virtual haven of sexual activity between Department of Corrections employees and
inmates." Judge McLaughlin also found that a former prison superintendent and official "fostered an attitude of
acquiescence
toward
such
pervasive
misconduct."
6. The PETITIONER filed an Affidavit to Ms. Christina Rainville, the pro bono counsel for Lisa Michelle Lambert, in
1998 that will prove the PETITIONERS past attempts at justice regarding the issues presented to this Court as
being both a motive of his perpetrators and a record of this continued misconduct and criminal activity to deny
the PETITIONER his right to due process and access to the courts. In totality this amounts to an unprecedented
case of obstruction of justice.
7. In the 1998 affidavit the PETITIONER wrote the following:
I, Stanley J. Caterbone being duly sworn according to law, make the following affidavit concerning the years
during which I was maliciously and purposefully mentally abused, subjected to a massive array of prosecutorial
misconduct, while enduring an exhaustive fight for the sovereignty of my constitutional rights, shareholder
rights, civil liberties, and right of due access to the law. I will detail a deliberate attempt on my life, in 1991,
exhibiting the dire consequences of this complaint. These allegations are substantiated through a
preponderance of evidence including but not limited to over 10,000 documents, over 50 hours of recorded
conversations, transcripts, and archived on several digital mediums. A Findings of Facts is attached herewith
providing merits and the facts pertaining to this affidavit. These issues and incidents identified herein have
attempted to conceal my disclosures of International Signal & Control, Pls.,. However, the merits of the violations
contained in this affidavit will be proven incidental to the existence of any conspiracy.
The plaintiff protests the courts for all remedial actions mandated by law. Financial considerations would exceed
$1 million
These violations began on June 23, 1987 while I was a resident and business owner in Lancaster County,
Pennsylvania., and have continued to the present. These issues are a direct consequence of my public
disclosure of fraud within International Signal & Control, Plc., of County of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, which were
in compliance with federal and state statutes governing my shareholder rights granted in 1983, when I purchased
my interests in International Signal & Control., Plc.. I will also prove intentional undo influence against family and
friends towards compromising the credibility of myself, with malicious and self serving accusations of
insanity. I conclude that the courts must provide me with fair access to the law, and most certainly, the process
must void any technical deficiencies found in this filing as being material to the conclusions. Such arrogance by

Advanced Media Group

the

Courts

would

only

challenge

the

judicial

integrity

of

our

Constitution.

1. The activities contained herein may raise the argument of fair disclosure regarding the scope of law pertaining
to issues and activities compromising the National Security of the United States. The Plaintiff will successfully
argue that due to the criminal record of International Signal & Control, including the illegal transfer of arms and
technologies to an end user Iraq, the laws of disclosure must be forfeited by virtue that said activities posed a
direct compromise to the National Security of the United States.; the plaintiff will argue that his public
allegations of misconduct within the operations of International Signal & Control, Plc., as early as June of 1987 ;
demonstrated actions were proven to protect the National Security of the United States.. The activities of
International Signal & Control, Pls., placed American troops in harms way. The plaintiffs actions should have
taken the American troops out of harms way causing the activities of the International Signal & Control, Plc., to
cease
and
desist.
.
All activities contained herein have greatly compromised the National Security of the United States, and the laws
of jurist prudence must apply towards the Plaintiffs intent and motive of protecting the rights of his fellow
citizens. Had the plaintiff been protected under the law, and subsequently had the law enforcement community of
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the County of Lancaster administer justice, United States troops may
have been taken out of harms way, as a direct result of ceasing the operations of International Signal & Control,
Plc.,
in
as
early
as
1987.
2. The plaintiff will successfully prove that the following activities and the prosecutorial misconduct were
directed at intimidating the plaintiff from continuing his public disclosures regarding illegal activities within
International Signal & Control, Plc,. On June 23, 1998, International Signal & Control, Plc was negotiating for the $
billion merger with Ferranti International, of England. Such disclosures threatened the integrity of International
Signal & Controls organization, and Mr. James Guerin himself, consequently resulting in adverse financial
considerations to all parties if such disclosures provided any reason to question the integrity of the transaction,
which later became the central criminal activity in the in The United States District Court For The Eastern District
Of
Pennsylvania
3. The plaintiff will prove that undo influence was also responsible for the adverse consequences and fabricated
demise of his business enterprises and personal holdings. The dire consequences of the plaintiffs failed
business dealings will demonstrate and substantiate financial incentive and motive. Defendants responsible for
administering undo influence and interference in the plaintiffs business and commercial enterprises had
financial interests. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as a taxing authority, Lancaster County had a great
investment whose demise would facilitate grave consequences to its economic development. . Commonwealth
National Bank (Mellon) would have less competition in the mortgage banking business and other financial
services, violating the lender liability laws. The Steinman Enterprises, Inc., would loose a pioneer in the
information technologies industries, and would protect the public domain from truthful disclosure. The plaintiff
will also provide significant evidence of said perpetrators violating common laws governing intellectual property
rights.
4. Given the plaintiffs continued and obstructed right to due process of the law, beginning in June of 1987 and
continuing to the present, the plaintiff must be given fair access to the law with the opportunity for any and all
remedial actions required under the federal and state statutes. The plaintiff will successfully argue his rights to
the courts to rightfully claim civil actions with regards to the totality of these activities, so described in the
following Findings of Facts, regardless of any statute of limitations. Given the plaintiffs genuine efforts for due
process has been inherently and maliciously obstructed, the courts must provide the opportunity for any and all
remedial actions deserving to the plaintiff
5. Under current laws, The plaintiffs intellectual capacity has been exploited as means of discrediting the
plaintiffs disclosures and obstructing the plaintiffs right to due process of the law. The plaintiff has always had
the proper rights under federal and state laws to enter into contract. The logic and reason towards the plaintiffs
activities and actions are a matter of record, demonstrated in the Findings of Facts, contained herein.
The plaintiff will argue and successfully prove that the inherent emotional consequences to all of the activities
contained herein have resulted in Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. The evidence of the stress subjected to the
plaintiff, will prove to be the direct result of the activities contained herein, rather than the exhibited behavior of
any mental deficiency the plaintiff may or may not have. The courts must provide for the proper interpretations of
all laws, irrespective of the plaintiffs alleged intellectual capacity. The plaintiff successfully argue that his
mental capacity is of very little legal consequence, if any; other than in its malicious representations used to

Advanced Media Group

Page 5 of 121

09/14/2007

diminish the credibility of the plaintiff.


6. The plaintiff will demonstrate that the following incidents of illegal prosecutions were purposefully directed at
intimidating the plaintiff from further public disclosure into the activities of International Signal & Control, Plc.,
consequently obstructing the plaintiffs access to due process of the law. Due to the fact that these activities to
which the plaintiffs perpetrators were protecting were illegal activities, the RICO statutes would apply
To this day, the plaintiff has never been convicted of any crime with the exception of 2 speeding tickets. The
following report identifies 34 instances of prosecutorial misconduct during the prosecutions and activities
beginning on June 23, 1987 and continuing to today
7. Given the preponderance of evidence associated with this affidavit, the courts must conclude that In The
United States District Court For The Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Federal Judge Stuart Dalzalls findings of
April 14, 1997, in the Lisa Lambert case identifying acts of Prosecutorial Misconduct, now, by virtue of this
affidavit, now discloses evidence of a bona fide pattern of prosecutorial misconduct, in the Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania and in the County of Lancaster. Criminal law must now determine if these disclosures would
warrant investigations of a possible criminal enterprise (RICO) . This affidavit is of material interest to the
Lambert case, for the very fact that this affidavit compromises the very same integrity of the court, which would
tip the scales of justice even further from the peoples deserving rights

In the truthfulness of this affidavit, The Commonwealth must concede Lisa Michelle Lambert to balance the
scales of justice, which no other act could accomplish. The Commonwealth must yield the criminal culpability of
Lisa Michelle Lambert to the superior matter of restoring the integrity to the courts; by its own admission of
wrongdoing, assuring the peoples of its commitment to administer equalities of justice, not inequalities of
justice. Balancing the scales of justice. Anything less, would take the full scope of jurisdiction out of the
boundaries of our laws, negating our democracy and impugning the Constitution of the United States. The
plaintiff must be restored to whole to so that justice may be restored to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and
to the County of Lancaster.
8. In 1998 the PETITIONER foresaw the attempt by the Courts to use the technical deficiencies as a means to
supersede the merits of his claims and right to remedy and justice. This is demonstrated in the following excerpt
from the 1998 affidavit:
I conclude that the courts must provide me with fair access to the law, and most certainly, the process must
void any technical deficiencies found in this filing as being material to the conclusions. Such arrogance by the
Courts would only challenge the judicial integrity of our Constitution.
9. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania clearly lacks credibility with regards to civil and criminal proceedings
with the PETITIONER. This is proven by the fact that the PETITIONER has had 27 criminal citations withdrawn,
Nolle Pros, or overturned since 1987, and most in the past six months. The PETITIONER has successfully
litigated a majority as a pro se litigant
10. Furthermore, in the past week, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the Lancaster County District
Attorneys Office had impugned its own integrity and obstructed justice in the two cases Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania v. Stanley J. Caterbone CP-36-CR-0004771-2006; CP-36-CR-0003179-2006. In CP-36-CR-00047712006 a negotiated agreement to nolle pros the charges on July 2, 2007 by Assistant District Attorney with the
PETITIONERS attorney, Paul G. Campbell, were completely ignored and delayed until the September trial court
term for malicious and political reasons. This tactic has left the PETITIONER under bail supervision and under
the confines of Lancaster County, which precludes the PETITIONER from visiting the Federal Courthouse in
Philadelphia and Reading to continue his civil litigation. It also precludes the PETITIONER from visiting any
courts and or government agencies in Harrisburg
11. On July 3, 2007, Judge James P. Cullen issued an ORDER that continues the pre-trial investigation for case
no. CP-36-CR-0003179-2006 and scheduled a hearing of oral arguments for August 7, 2007 for the Post Trial
Motion to Acquit after Court Appointed Attorney Janice Longer informed the PETITIONER that Judge James P.
Cullen was moving to issue a retrial. This can be verified when the Probation and Parole Office discontinued
efforts for the Pre Sentence Investigation and canceled a psychological evaluation for the PETITIONER. The
tandem effect is that after several motions by the PETITIONER for Judge Cullen to recuse himself from case no.
CP-36-CR-0003179-2006, which is also contained in the Post Trial Motion to Acquit, Judge James P. Cullen has

Advanced Media Group

Page 6 of 121

09/14/2007

essentially obstructed justice due to the fact that he is a defendant in this case. Judge Cullen also continues to
place the PETITIONER as a Defendant in criminal proceedings by not making a ruling on the Post Trial Motion to
Acquit after both sides presented written arguments. Judge James P. Cullen must be compelled to recuse
himself from any and all cases when a clear conflict of interest is present
12. Another instance where the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania impugned its own integrity is found in the case
no. 360234927-002M Stanley J. Caterbone v. the Department of Public Welfare and the Bureau of Appeals and
Hearings. In this instance Administrative Law Judge Robert S. Rosen ruled against the PETITIONER in a
challenge to the DPW discontinuance of Food Stamp Benefits and cited that the PETITIONER had failed to supply
documents to the ALJ Rosen. The PETITIONER produced a United States Postal Priority Mail Confirmation that
proved ALJ Rosen had misrepresented the truth. Further Arrogance by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania was
demonstrated when on July 2, 2007, the Department of Public Welfare DENIED the PETITIONERS appeal for
rehearing and reconsideration in a clear and overt effort to cover up ALJ Rosens blatant disregard for the truth
and
the
law.
13. Another instance of judicial misconduct and contempt was cited on July 12, 2007. The PETITIONER received
a Adjudication DISMISSAL Order today for an Appeal Hearing that was scheduled for July 2, 2007. The Notice
stated: The Appellant was not available, nor did the Appellant provide good cause for not being available.
Because the Appellant has failed to pursue the appeal, it will be dismissed in accordance with 55 Pa. Code
275.4(e)(6)(iii)(A)(9I 94). On June 21st, 2007, the PETITIONER mailed in the Reply to Bureau of Hearings and
Appeals and that contained the following: I will not be available for the hearing because: LANCASTER COUNTY
COURT SCHEDULE CONFLICT CASE NO. CP-36-0004771-2006 PLEASE RESCHEDULE. The PETITIONER been
scheduled for the Call of The Trial List on July 2, 2007 at 8:30 am (same time as Appeal Hearing), and attended
the Commonwealth Court Hearing as instructed. This is an example of unprecedented arrogance by the judiciary.
14. In July of 2006 the PETITIONER emailed the President of the United States, President George W. Bush. The
email contained the following: As soon as I frame my arguments for a petition for your Impeachment, I will
forward to your Attorney General. I am tired of living in a county and state where there is no Rule of Law.
15. The PETITIONER was sending a message about the dire nature of the obstruction of justice and the fact that
the PETITIONER had justified suspicion of the Administrations possible overt intimidation in the PETITIONERS
Federal Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Case No. 05-23059 and continued wrongdoing by the Department of Justice
Office of the Trustee. These allegations are described in various Federal Court filings and briefs.
16. On July 3, 2007, in an American Research Group Poll presented on the FOX News Network, 45% of those
polled favored the start of impeachment proceedings against the President, while only 46% did not favor starting
impeachment proceedings. For Vice President Dick Cheney, 54% of those polled favored the start of
impeachment proceedings. THE PETITIONER clearly is not lacking in political prowess and vision, and must not
be intimidated and retaliated against for such views and opinions. Complacency by Law Enforcement and Justice
Officials in upholding the PETITIONERS Constitutional and Civil Rights may be construed is some courts as
being a violation of RICO statutes, among others

17. The Pennsylvania Constitution and the United States Constitution both guarantee the PETITIONER a right to
the Courts to resolve the allegations and complaints through discovery and interrogatories and upon merit a
right to trial by jury. It is these fundamental procedures that are constantly subverted in a malicious and
calculated manner in order to prevent rulings on the merits of the PETITIONERS complaints, thus subverting the
rule of law and obstructing justice
18. There are several Federal and State Statutes and Regulations that have been violated, including the
PETITIONERS United States Constitutional Rights and the Pennsylvania Constitutional Rights. The Federal RICO
statutes address the false arrests and the prosecutorial misconduct in the ANTI-SLAPP provisions. To date, the
PETITIONER has had twenty-five (27) criminal prosecutions by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania overturned,
dismissed, or withdrawn. Anti-SLAPP (strategic lawsuit against public participation) laws can be applied in an
attempt to curb alleged abuses of the legal system by individuals or corporations who utilize the courts as a
weapon to retaliate against whistle blowers, victims, or to silence another's speech. RICO could be alleged if it
can be shown that lawyers and/or their clients conspired and collaborated to concoct fictitious legal complaints
solely in retribution and retaliation for themselves having been brought before the courts. These laws also apply
to victims of clergy abuse where statute of limitations has run out

Advanced Media Group

Page 7 of 121

09/14/2007

19. The ABA Model Code of Professional Responsibility (1983) ETHICAL CONSIDERATIONS 7-21 states The civil
adjudicative process is primarily designed for the settlement of disputes between parties, while the criminal
process is designed for the protection of society as a whole. Threatening to use, or using, the criminal process to
coerce adjustment of private civil claims or controversies is a subversion of that process; further, the person
against whom the criminal process is so misused may be deterred from asserting his legal rights and thus the
usefulness of the civil process in settling private disputes is impaired. As in all cases of abuse of judicial
process, the improper use of criminal process tends to diminish public confidence in our legal system.
20. Over the years, the PETITIONER has solicited some 20 attorneys to help defend the PETITIONER from the
intimidation and abuse, and to seek a resolution to the issues. However, the political implications and the alleged
violations of the PETITIONERS civil and constitutional rights made it impossible for the PETITIONER to secure
private counsel

21. This application for reconsideration is most certainly submitted in good faith and not in any way for delay.

Respectfully submitted,

1984 To 1987
In 1984/85 We had helped to develop strategic planning for Sandy Weill, former President of Citi Group (the
largest banking entity in the U.S). We were one of several associates asked to help advise on the future of
Financial Planning and how it would impact the brokerage and the investment industry at large. Mr. Weil was
performing due diligence for the merger of American Express and IDS (Investors Diversified Services). We were at
that time a national leader in the company in delivering Fee Based Financial Planning Services, which was a new
concept in the investment community and mainstream investors. That concept is now widely held by most
investment advisors.
In 1985/86 We were elected Vice President of the Central Pennsylvania Chapter of the International Association of
Financial Planners, and helped build that chapter by increasing membership 3to 4 times. We had personally
retained the nationally acclaimed and nationally syndicated Financial Planner, Ms. Alexandria Armstrong of
Washington D.C.; to host a major fundraiser. More than 150 professionals attended the dinner event that was held
at the Eden Resort & Conference Center. Ms. Armstrong discussed financial planning and how all of the
professions needed to work together in order to be most effective for their clients. We attracted a wide variety of
professionals including; brokers, lawyers, accountants, realtors, tax specialists, estate planners, bankers, and
investment advisors. Today, it has become evident that financial planning was the way of the future. In 1986
executives approached us from Blue Ball National Bank to help them develop a Financial Planning department
within their bank.
In 1985 we developed the Easter Regional Free Agent Camp, the first Free Agent Camp for the Professional
Football industry; which was videotaped for distribution to the teams scouting departments. (See Washington Post
page article of March 24, 1985) Current camps were dependant on the team scouts to travel from state to state
looking for recruits. We had developed a strategy of video taping the camp and the distributing a copy, free of
charge to the teams, to all of the scouting departments for teams in all three leagues FL, CFL and WFL. My
brother was signed at that camp by the Ottawa Roughriders of the CFL, and went on to be a leading receiver while
J.C. Watts was one of the leagues most prominent quarterbacks. My brother also played 2 years with the Miami
Dolphins while Dan Marino was starting quarterback. We were a Certified Agent for the National Football League
Players Association. Gene Upshaw, the President of the NFLPA had given me some helpful hints for my camp,
while we were at a Conference for agents of the NFL. The Washington Post wrote a full-page article about our
camp and associated it with other camps that were questionable about their practices. Actually, that was the very
reason for our camp. We had attended many other camps around the country that were not very well organized
and attracted few if any scouts. We had about 60 participants, with one player coming from as far away as Hawaii.
We held the camp at Lancaster Catholic, with a professional production company filming the entire camp, while I
did the editing and produced the video. The well respected and widely acclaimed professional football scout, Gil
Brandt, of the Dallas Cowboys, had given me support for my camp during some conversations We had with him
and
said
he
looked
forward
to
reviewing
the
tapes
for
any
hopeful
recruits.
In 1986 We had founded Financial Management Group, Ltd (FMG); a large financial services organization
comprised of a variety of professionals operating in one location. We had developed a stock purchase program for
where everyone had the opportunity for equity ownership in the new firm. FMG had financial planners, investment
managers, accountants, attorneys, realtors, liability insurance services, tax preparers, and estate planners
operating out of our corporate headquarters in Lancaster. In one year, we had 24 people on staff, had
approximately 12 offices in Pennsylvania, and several satellite offices in other states. We had in excess of $50
million under management, and our advisors were generating almost $4 million of commissions, which did not
include the fees from the other professionals. We had acquired our own Broker Dealer firm and were valued at
about
$3
to
$4
million.
In 1987 We had a created and developed FMG Mortgage Banking, a company that was funded by a major
banking firm in Houston Texas. We had the capability to finance projects from $3 to $100 million dollars. Our terms
and rates were so attractive that we had quickly received solicitations from developers across the country. We
were also very attractive to companies that wanted to raise capital that include both debt and equity. Through my
company, FMG, we could raise equity funding through private placements, and debt funding through FMG
Mortgage Banking. We were retained by Gamillion Studios of Hollywood, California to secure financing of their
postproduction Film Studio that was looking to relocate to North Carolina. We had secured refinancing packages
for Norris Boyd of and the Olde Hickory and were in the midst of replacing the current loan that was with
Commonwealth National Bank. We had meetings and discussions with Drew Anton of the Eden Resort, for
refinancing a portion of his debt portfolio. We were quickly seeking commitments for real estate deals from New
York to California. We also had a number of other prominent local developers seeking our competitive funding,

Advanced Media Group

York to California. We also had a number of other prominent local developers seeking our competitive funding,
including Owen Kugal, High Industries, and the Marty Sponougle a partner of The Fisher Group (owner of the Rt.
30 Outlets). We were constantly told that our financing packages were more completive than local institutions.
In 1987 Power Station Studios of New York retained me as executive producer of a motion picture project. The
theatrical and video release was to be delivered in a digital format; the first of its kind. We had originated the
marketing for the technology, and created the concept for the Power Station Digital Movie System (PSDMS),
which would follow the copyright and marketing formula of the DOLBY technology trademark. We had also created
and developed marketing and patent research for the development and commercialization of equipment that we
intended to manufacture and market to the recording industry featuring the digital technology. Sidel, Gonda,
Goldhammer, and Abbot, P.C. of Philadelphia was the lead patent law firm that We had retained for the project.
Power Station Studios was the brainchild of Tony Bongiovi, a leading engineering genius discovered by Motown
when he was 15. Tony and Power Station Studios was one of the leading recording studios in the country, and
were responsible for developing Bon Jovi, a cousin. Power Station Studios clients included; Bruce Springsteen,
Diana Ross, Cyndi Lauper, Talking Heads, Madonna, The Ramones, Steve Winwood, and many others. Tony and
Power Station Studios had produced the original Sound Track for the original Star Wars motion picture. It was
released for distribution and was the number one Sound Track recording of its time. Tony Bongiovi was also active
in working and researching different aerospace technologies. * We had developed and authored a Joint Venture
Proposal for SONY to partner with us in delivering the Digital Movie and its related technologies to the
marketplace. The venture was to include the commercialization of technologies, which Tony Bongiovi had
developed for the recording industry simultaneously with the release of the Digital Movie. I also created the
concept for the PSDMS trademark, which was to be the Trademark logo for the technology, similar to the DOLBY
sound systems trademark. The acronyms stand for the Power Station Digital Movie System. Today, DVD is the
mainstay
for
delivering
digital
movies
on
a
portable
medium,
a
compact
disc.
1988 To 1998
In 1989 We had founded Advanced Media Group, Ltd., and was one of only 5 or 6 U.S. domestic companies that
had the capability to manufacture CD-ROM's. We did business with commercial companies, government agencies,
educational institutions, and foreign companies. I performed services and contracts for the Department of
Defense, NASA, National Institution of Standards & Technology (NIST), Department of Defense, The Defense
Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and the Defense Mapping Agency, Central Intelligence Agency,
(CIA), IBM, Microsoft, AMP, Commodore Computers, American Bankers Bond Buyers, and a host of others. I also
was working with R.R, Donnelly's Geo Systems, which was developing various interactive mapping technologies,
which is now a major asset of Map Quest. Map Quest is the premier provider of mapping software and
applications for the internet and is often used in delivering maps and directions for Fortune 500 companies. We
had arranged for High Industries to sell American Helix, the manufacturer of compact discs, to R.R. Donnelly. We
had brokered a deal and the executives from Donnellys Chicago headquarters flew to Lancaster to discuss the
deal and perform due diligence of the manufacturing facility located in the Greenfield Industrial Park.
1990 1991
We had worked on developing voice recognition systems for the governments technology think tank - NIST
(National Institute for Standards & Technology). I co-authored the article Escaping the Unix Tar Pit with a
scientist from NIST that was published in the magazine DISC, then one of the leading publications for the CDROM industry. Today, most all call centers deploy that technology whenever you call an 800 number, and voice
recognition
is
prevalent
in
all
types
of
applications
involving
telecommunications.
In 1991 We were elected to People to People International and the Citizen Ambassador Program, which was
founded by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956. The program was founded to To give specialists from
throughout the world greater opportunities to work together and effectively communicate with peers, The Citizen
Ambassador program administers face-to-face scientific, technical, and professional exchanges throughout the
world. In 1961, under President John F. Kennedy, the State Department established a non-profit private
foundation to administer the program. We were scheduled to tour the ***iet Union and Eastern Europe to discuss
printing
and
publishing
technologies
with
scientists
and
technicians
around
the
world.
1993
We were retained by Pflumm Contractors, Inc., as controller, and was responsible for saving the company from a
potential bankruptcy. At that time, due to several unpaid contracts, the company was facing extreme pressure from
lenders and the bonding insurance company. We were responsible for implementing computerized accounting,
accounting and contract policies and procedures, human resource policies and procedures, marketing strategies,
performance measurement reporting, and negotiate for the payment of unpaid contracts. The bonding company

performance measurement reporting, and negotiate for the payment of unpaid contracts. The bonding company
was especially problematic, since it was the lifeline to continue work and bidding for public contracts. The Bank of
Lancaster County demanded a complete accounting of the operations in order to stave off a default on the notes
and loans it was holding. We essentially revamped the entire operation. Within 3 years, the company realized an
increase
in
profits
of
3
to
4
times
its
previous
years,
and
record
revenues.
1998
We had began to administer the charity giving of Toms Project Hope, a non-profit organization promoting
education and awareness for mental illness and suicide prevention. We had provided funding for the Mental
Health Alliance of Lancaster County, Contact Lancaster (The 24/7 Suicide Prevention Hotline), The Schreiber
Pediatric
Center,
and
other
charitable
organizations
and
faith
based
charities.
1999 to 2005
In 1999 We contributed to the debate, research, and implementation of strategies to counter the effects of the
global Y2K threat to the worlds computer technologies. We attended the U.S. Sponsored Y2K symposium and
Conference in Washington, D.C. hosted by the Senate Y2K Subcommittee and Senator William Bennett.
In 1999 We developed a comprehensive business plan to develop the former Sprecher Brewery, known as the
Excelsior Building on E. King Street, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. This plan was developed in conjunction with the
Comprehensive Economic Development Plan for the Revitalization of Downtown Lancaster and the Downtown
Lancaster Convention Center for the former Watt & Shand building.
In 2000 to 2002 We developed an array of marketing and communication tools for wholesalers of the AIM
Investment Group and managed several communication programs for several of the company wholesalers
throughout the United States and Costa Rica. We also began a Day Trading project that lasted until 2004 with
success.
In 2004 We embarked on our past endeavors in the music and entertainment industries with an emphasis on
assisting for the fair and equitable distribution of artists rights and royalties in the fight against electronic piracy.
We have attempted to assist in developing new business models to address the convergence of physical and
electronic mediums; as it displaces royalties and revenues for those creating, promoting, and delivering a range of
entertainment content via wireless networks
In 2005 We began our philanthropic endeavors by spending our energies and working with such organizations as;
ONE.org, Livestrong.org, WoundedWarriors.org, The Clinton Global Initiative, Lancaster Convention Center
Authority, Lancaster Chamber of Commerce, Toms Project Hope, People to People International,
GlobalWarming.org, Contact Lancaster/24 Hour Suicide Hotline, Schreiber Pediatric Center, and numerous others.
Advanced Media Group/Project Hope filed a Civil Action in the Court of Common Pleas of Lancaster County
against Drew Anthon and the Eden Resort Inn for their attempts to withhold the Tourism Tax and Hotel Tax that
supports the Downtown Lancaster Convention Center. We also proposed an alternative plan to move the
Convention Center to the Hotel Brunswick and Lancaster Square to all of the major stakeholders.
We filed several federal and state civil actions that are in current litigation regarding intellectual property rights to
digital technologies; anti-trust violations with regards to Financial Management Group, Ltd., and American
Helix/Advanced Media Group, Ltd; civil rights, prosecutorial misconduct and police abuse actions; and a Federal
False Claims Act or Federal Whistleblowers Act action regarding the firm of International Signal and Control, Plc.,
(ISC) that dates back to 1987.

Brief summary of abuse (Drugs, Electric Shock Treatment, Psychiatric Rape, Confinement):
Fabricated allegations of suicide, "going to the beach with a gun to kill himself", made by James
Warner on August 12, 1987 to the Stone Harbor Police Department. Incarcerated and taken to the
Burdette Tomlin Hospital in Stone Harbor, New Jersey, on August 12, 1987 by Officer Steve
O'Conner and Henry Stanford of the Stone Harbor Police Department, and accompanied by Steve
and Tom Caterbone (brothers). Hospital officials refused to release me, and after several hours, I
was forced into signing a contract with the hospital that said "I, Stanley J. Caterbone will not take
my life tonight or anytime" as a requirement for my release. [SEE PAGES 40 TO 41 OF ROY
GRIFFEN'S CHRONOLOGY OF EVENTS, DATED DECEMBER 20, 1991]
On September 9th, 1987, I was denied bail for again fabricated criminal charges of September 3,
1987, (all charges dropped in March of 1988) unless I admitted myself into the Psychiatric Unit of
St. Joseph Hospital in Lancaster, PA. Officials of the Lancaster County Prison, attorney Robert
Byers, Mary Lynn DiPaolo, Dr. Al Shulz, Yolanda Caterbone (Mother), and Michael Caterbone
(brother) all collaborated that the only way bail would be allowed to be posted is by admitting
myself, voluntarily, into the Hospital. After learning that the requirment (hospitalization), for
posting bail was not required, I released myself from the hospital. During the five days of
hospitalization, I was made to take lithium several times per day. I was also denied any opportunity
to communicate with any attorneys or representatives regarding any of my legal affairs. [SEE
PAGES 45 TO 46 OF ROY GRIFFEN'S CHRONOLOGY OF EVENTS, DATED DECEMBER 20, 1991]
On June 7, 1991, I was again incarcerated and arrested on fabricated charges, again by the Stone
Harbor Police, again by Officer Henry Stanford, for driving while under the influence. During a
sobriety test on the sidewalk, I again asked Officer Stanford what the charges were and he replied
"It doesn't matter, it is my word against yours, -and we know who they will believe, remember '87.
When I passed two breathalizer tests (.08), Officer Stanford refused to release me and I was placed
in a holding cell. After several hours, an Officer McLaughlin arrived from the Avalon Police
Department, with a warrent for my arrest, for outstanding warrents (fabricated traffic violations of
August 14, 1987), which attorney Byers had since said were dropped, and again placed under
arrest. The two officers, McClaughlin (Avalon, NJ) and Stanford (Stone Harbor, NJ) requested
$340.00 for bail. I requested to go to my car for the cash, which was one block away, and Officer
McGlaughlin refused stating "you may have a gun in the car". I was taken to the Cape May County
Prison, fingerprinted and improsoned until the next day. I posted bail the following day. [SEE

Prison, fingerprinted and improsoned until the next day. I posted bail the following day. [SEE
PAGES 74 TO 75 OF ROY GRIFFEN'S CHRONOLOGY OF EVENTS, DATED DECEMBER 20, 1991]
On September 3, 1987, I was arrested for burglarizing my own leased property, charged with
stealing my own property, charged with destroying my own property, charged with terrorizing my
own employee, who I kissed goodbye, and awaited for her safe return into my building, and
charged with making an alleged bomb threat to my own place of business, by the Manhiem
Township Police Department, the Lancaster District Attorney, District Justice Murray Horton, and
District Justice Richard Reeser. [SEE PAGES 44 TO 45 OF ROY GRIFFEN'S CHRONOLOGY OF
EVENTS, DATED DECEMBER 20, 1991]
On December 4, 1987 at the annual shareholders meeting of Financial Management Group, Ltd.,
the company that I had founded, Mr. Robert Kauffman conveniently arranged and hired armed
security guards stand _at the entrance of the meeting. This strategy was used for the sole purpose
of purporting and supporting his fabricated allegations of criminal misconduct and mental illness of
myself, by suggesting that I was going to attend the meeting, which was perfectly within my rights,
as a 20% shareholder of Financial Management Group, Ltd., the Executive Vice President, and
Secretary, and President of FMG Advisory. Mr. Kauffman attempted to insinuate that I was
contemplating attending the meeting in order to cause violence. I did not attend the meeting, nor
had any plans to do so. [SEE PAGES 53 OF ROY GRIFFEN'S CHRONOLOGY OF EVENTS, DATED
DECEMBER 20, 1991]
In March of 1991, David D. Dering, the president of American Helix Technology Corporation, told all
employees during a special staff meeting, that I "was a runaway ex-convict that would end up in
jail soon, and that I was "bad news". Mr. Dering also spent approximately 20 minutes slandering
my character, my reputation, and my business activities. Mr. Dering was threatened by my
disclosure of filing a civil Anti-Trust suit against American Helix and High Industries, its parent
company, for allegations of conspiracy to sabotage my business activities in 1987 with "Digital
Technologies", which resulted in the formation of American Helix, by persons which were involved in
my business affairs in 1987, and which was my business. (Scott Robertson, Robert Long, Norris
Boyd, High Industries). [SEE PAGES 73 OF ROY GRIFFEN'S CHRONOLOGY OF EVENTS, DATED
DECEMBER 20, 1991]
On July 6, 1987 in the first conversation with Dr. Al Shulz since 'November of 1986, Stan Caterbone
learned that numerous persons, including Mary Lynn DiPaolo and Jere Sullivan had personally called
Dr. Shulz and fabricated allegations of mental illness in the previous' days. Dr. Al Shulz also
accused Stan Caterbone of suffering from "illusions of grandure", and did not believe any of his
extensive business dealings, specifically the "Digital" movie and its related activities. [SEE PAGES
34 TO PAGES 35 OF ROY GRIFFEN'S CHRONOLOGY OF EVENTS, DATED DECEMBER 20, 1991]
On or about July 30, 1987 Stan Caterbone retained the services of Dr. Marshall Levine, a
psychiatrist from Northfield, NJ, to conduct an objective review of his mental state of mind, soley to
discredit the fabricated allegations of mental illness. Dr. Levine conducted a 2 hour interview at his
home in Stone Harbor, NJ and requird Stan Caterbone to complete the MMPI test. Stan Caterbone
also paid Dr. Marshall Levine a $600 fee for the services. After submitting the MMPI test, and not
hearing from Dr. Levine, Stan Caterbone finally called Dr. Levine for the results. Dr. Levine had
disclosed that he had conducted telephone interviews with family members, without the consent or
knowledge of Stan Caterbone, and specifically not adhering to the original agreement of a complete
objective and impartial review. Dr. Levine prescribed Lithium drugs, and would not send any written
communications regarding his findings or conclusions. Stan Caterbone requested for a refund of all
monies paid, however Dr. Marshall Levine refused. [SEE PAGES 39 TO PAGES 40 OF ROY GRIFFEN'S
CHRONOLOGY OF EVENTS, DATED DECEMBER 20, 1991]
It should be noted that I have never been convicted of any crime, before or after the above
occurences. In fact, I have never had any altercation with the law before the above incidents,
except for a few speeding violations that dated back to 1982.

Date Occurrence
See Roy Griffen's Chronology of December 20, 1991, pages 1 to 88
List out the specific harms resulting from the psychiatric treatment which you are aware of:
Loss of professional and personal ruputation. Loss of income. Extreme sense of cuation when
engaging in interpersonal relationships. Extreme loss of respect among personal and professional
peers. Complete and thourough mistrust for psychiatric profession. Sense for the inadequate and
abuse of psychiatric diagnosis, and familiarity and personal experience of psychiatric abuse in order
to support political, financial, and or personal agendas and gains. Extreme loss of dignity. Extreme
loss of respect. Permanent psychological scares from experience. Extreme mental duress, stress,
and other related anxieties. Complete loss of faith of Psychiatric profession and related supporting
systems, including law enforcement, judicial, and legislative, considering the pleas for help to
resolve the criminal conspiracy in the early stages of July, 1987.
Loss of Patent and intellectual property rights of Financial Management Group, Ltd., and Digital
technologies, including the PSDMS (Power Station Digital Movie Sound).

technologies, including the PSDMS (Power Station Digital Movie Sound).


Loss of Accumulated Business assets worth at least $2,500,000.
Do you have government connections personally or through family members? If so, what?
-Federal contracts with the National Institute of Standards and Technology for CD-ROM
manufacturing. Procurement for same with the Defense Mapping Agency of the Department of
Defense. Phillip Caterbone (brother), fellowship with the National Institute of Health of Bethesda,
Maryland (1990-1991). Samuel A. Caterbone (brother), military service, USAF (1969-1971).
Samuel Caterbone, Jr., (father), alleged association with the Central Intelligence Agency, CIA,
(disclosed by Dominic Roda, uncle & Godfather, on November 17, 1991, and by Midge Caterbone,
aunt, on November 22, 1991. Both persons acknowledged the time period of 1974 to 1981 where
the whereabouts of Sameul Caterbone Jr. were unknown to all persons, including all family
members.
Do you have family or friends who think you should undergo further psychiatric treatment?
See list. All persons have advocated the use of medication. Reasons were never disclosed. The
persons would especially disclose the belief for psychiatric treatment when I persued legal recourse
for activities of 1987.
In all of the events, activities, and incidents described herein, No one, has ever stated any
particular event or incident to support the many allegations of mental illness. Any allegations, the
suicide, financial bankruptcy, and others, have always been proven to be fabricated, and I have
always had sufficient evidence that they were fabricated. However, to this day, I, have never had
any opportunity to discuss all related affairs, contained herein, with the exception of the 4 hour
meeting on September 29, 1987, with the Pennsylvania Securities Commission. However, after that
meeting, I have not heard from the investigator, Mr. Howard Eisler, or any representative of the
Pennsylvania Securities Commission, until 2 months later, when I recieved a notice to put my
complaint into writing.
In addition, during the preliminary hearing of the criminal charges of September 3, 1987, my
alleged attorney, Robert Byers, refused to discuss any of my defenses, including that I was legally
never terminated from the FMG, Ltd., Board of directors, that I was an indiviual leaseholder of the
building I allegedly burglarized, that all of the files taken were my property, as well as others.
How do you feel about what psychiatry did to you?
Ruined my life, my businesses, my opportunity for income, and virtually all relationships
encountered prior to 1987. Loss of all personal assets, including homes, monies, and business
accomplishments. It is the single most reason for the lack of any type of quality of life, which I
presently am deprived, which will soon result in becoming homeless.
Have you contemplated taking any action against the psychiatrist or do -you want to take action? If
so, what?
Yes, civil suits to recover financial damages, personal and professional reputation, and punative
damages for extreme emotional and mental duress.
Any
other
comments
or
information
you
would
like
to
provide?
This case is directly involved with a "Cover-Up" (criminal conspiracy) to supress my knowledge and
allegations of misconduct of International Signal & Control (ISC), which I made public in May of
1987, and to ISC executive Larry Resch on June 23, 1987, during a meeting at my office. I was a
shareholder of ISC stock during that time. In addition, Jere Sullivan and James Warner, both of
whom personally fabricated allegations of isanity, were directly involved with ISC. Jere Sullivan
worked for United Chem Con, (Guerin company), and has been a business partner of Mr. Larry
Resch since 1987. James Warner (Lancaster Solid Waste Management Authority) was working with
attorny Steve Spinello, of the law firm of Hartman, Underhill, & Brubaker, on the $50 million
incinerator. Steven Spinello was also negotiating the ISC merger with Ferranti International, of
London, during the time inwhcih I made allegations of misconduct regarding Mr. James Guerin, ISC,
and United Chem Con. During this same time, Mr. James Warner made repeated allegations of

and United Chem Con. During this same time, Mr. James Warner made repeated allegations of
insanity, and also officially reported a fabricated allegation of suicide to authorities of the Stone
Harbor Police Department, of New Jeresy. Ferranti and ISC finally merged the following November,
of 1987. In September of 1987, I made allegations of fruad within ISC to Howard Eisler, an
investigator with the Pennsyvania Securities Commission, during a 4 hour meeting in my home,
'that
was
solicited
by
the
Pennsylvania
Securities
Commission.
All allegations of insanity (surfacing in July of 1987 and continuing to present), conveniently
discredited all of my allegaitons of misconduct within ISC, its executives, and its operations, as well
as my allegations of criminal conspiracy and fruad by Robert Kauffman, Michael Hartlett, FMG, Ltd.,
executives, Commonwealth National Bank, as well as all other related parties.
In 1989, Ferranti disclosed allegaitons of the "Billion Dollar Fraud" by James Guerin and ISC, by
inflating
the
value
of
ISC
related
contracts.
On October 31, 1991, ISC founder James Guerin, Larry Resch, and 17 others were indicted by a
Philadelphia Federal Grand Jury on charges of a "$ 1.14 Billion Fraud (Ferranti/ISC Merger of
November, 1987)" and the illegal sales of Arms to South Africa and Iraq. Mr. Guerin and Mr. Resch
have
since
pleaded
guilty
to
all
charges.
Thank you for filling out this survey. Please send it to us in the enclosed self addressed envelope.
As per my conversation with your representative on December 16, 1991, I would expect to receive
a copy of your findings, reports, and or conclusion of your investigation, for myself, as well as my
legal
representatives,

HAD LANCASTER COUNTY LOST ITS SOVEREIGNTY


BEFORE IT LOST ITS SOUL?
Authored in May of 1998
Advanced Media Group
Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to
improve the lot of others, or strikes out against
injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope. And
crossing each other from a million different centers
of energy and daring, those ripples build a current
which can sweep down the mightiest walls of
oppression.. by Robert F. Kennedy

In 1987 This Plaintiff Had Unjustly Lost His Freedoms, His Rights, And His Pursuit Of Life, Liberty
And Justice.
The following report (most identities purposely omitted from this version) is an amazingly true and
factual account of an extraordinarily bizarre tragedy that has turned one mans life into an eleven
(11) (Now 20) year free fall into Dantes Hell.
On the surface, this is a story of a victim struggling to seek the truth, but in reality, the evidence
will conclude that this is a victim, literally, held hostage by virtue of his truth. Later, the
preponderance of evidence that the victim has amassed and his obsession for meticulously
documenting his ordeal might seem eccentric, yet his demonstrated ability to react to events before
they unfold appears mystical. And this was his manner in which he tactfully defended and protected
his life. It is these actions that have painted the landscape with a dire vengeance for his ruin. His
actions will ultimately serve to protect, preserve, and foster the truth of his story, incriminating the
culpability of his many perpetrators, while at the same time being twisted and tainted in a
relentless
manner
to
attack
his
credibility.
This is a story of a human being endearing for his rights, living in fear of his life, and the remedial
actions required for the truth to set him free. A victim forever believing in his accomplishments and
his visions, yet forced to adhere to a life of their diversions. Fatefully, ten years after being taken as
a political hostage, with the aid of numerous arrests and false imprisonments conveniently falling
short convictions , a Federal Judge, Judge Stuart Dalzall, of the Eastern District Court of
Pennsylvania, opened a Pandoras Box into the true colors of the inner workings and politics of
ultra conservative Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. A supposedly Gods country. His findings
reeled a dramatic and emotional response from the Lancaster County community that was akin to
the assassination of JFK . A community where obstructions of justice strikes a startling and stark
contrast to the image it so desperately embraces. A community proud of its tough on crime
judges, a community of plain folks and Amish, and a community settled in a beautiful landscape
abundant in an agricultural bounty. This is not a community of compromising integrity. Or so it has
been perceived.
Judge Dalzalls extremely controversial findings were responsible for Pennsylvanias own crafting of
the Laurie Bill, the retaliation by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania intended to curb the Federal
Courts interference within the respective states own jurisdictions and proceedings. Or was it a
political maneuver to close the lid on Pandoras Box? The Pennsylvania Attorney General and the
Lancaster County District Attorney have both thrown all their might and all their muscle at turning
the tides of Judge Dalzalls findings. This story and this victims rights have been violated and
abused by some of the very same principals that were responsible for Judge Dalzalls unsettling
revelations. Lancaster County prosecutors were found to have engaged in one of the grossest acts
of prosecutorial misconduct found in the English speaking language, which allegedly occurred in
this now famous Lisa Michelle Lambert case, a murder trial which began in the summer of 1992.

this now famous Lisa Michelle Lambert case, a murder trial which began in the summer of 1992.
Subsequently, it is now in the midst of a treacherous appeal process convened by Judge Dalzall.
And if so by fate, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the home of the Freedom Fighters.
It is this public disclosure, that casts a new light and sudden hope for freedom into this victims
unbelievable and horrid story, that begun just four years prior to the murder of Laurie Show. It is
the decisive similarities of how both victims were subjected to a very calculated and politically
motivated attempts to frame and fabricate circumstances to obtain the results that justified the
means for illicit self-serving interests. This very same conduct, committed by public servants,
elected and enlisted to enforce the law, to which Judge Dalzell found so appalling. Conduct, which
violated the very same rights their respective offices are commissioned to protect. Conduct which
strikes the meaning of We The People from our nations very own Constitution.
Fortunately, this victims story is laced with a thread of faith, a faith in God. And because of his
faith, this victim will forever regard Lisa Michelle Lambert and Laurie Show as his little Angels of
Justice, a Godsend. An answer to his many prayers, that for the first time in ten years provided a
small glimmer of hope, and a few moments of solitude that have materially justified his own tragic
experience. The realization that the truth is that much more believable because of the trials and
tribulations of Lisa Michelle Lambert. Unfortunately, this revelation came at the unfortunate and
untimely death of Laurie. However, it just may be Gods intentions of a Higher Purpose.
This story was perpetuated through a gross miscarriage of justice: a tenure of malicious
wrongdoing by both the law enforcement community of Lancaster County and the Commonwealth
of Pennsylvania, as well as community leaders. A process that continues obstruct this victims rights
for justice. Its mannerisms reach into the inner soul of political and judicial corruption. All in the
name of greed, and all in the honor of continuing the status quo of the Good Ole Boys club of
Lancaster County. A process obsessed with keeping its disclosure from escaping beyond the
confines of Pandoras Box. Its a tenure of power that evolved from the days of this countrys
earliest settlers, but an evolution that has somewhere strayed away from the intent of our
constitution; with total disregard for the law, in total disrespect for the Constitution, and void of
many of our civil liberties. This atrocity, like the Lambert case, would have made our founding
forefathers revel in disgust and bellow in despair. In fact, their spirits and energies probably are!
AT
ISSUE
The central issue in this story, is a cover up, a cover up of mass proportions, and of perplexing
design, with national consequences. The fact of the matter is that this cover up has had
ramifications throughout this world, specifically the Middle East The cover up would be emphatically
unbelievable without the wealth of evidence, especially the recorded conversations with
Pennsylvania officials. A cover up that permeates from what will later emerge as the 4th largest
financial fraud (Billion Dollars) in the history of the United States coupled with the covert sales of
arms to Iraq. And five years after this cover up began, these same munitions were used against our
own troops in the Persian Gulf War. And of course, there are admitted ties to the Central
Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the National Security Agency (NSA).. And this cover up and story,
which began in June of 1987, in Lancaster County, preceded criminal indictments by the United
States Attorney General, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Internal Revenue Service
(IRS), the Department of Justice and Commerce, and more. A vast array of criminal activities
conspired from the ultra conservative Lancaster County, where God is supposedly supreme, and its
hard line approach to crime is said to be preeminent. In June of 1987, Lancaster County was
immersed in a dynamic twist of fate, with a host of players which may never be fully identified.
The irony of this story is how Lancaster County manages the disclosure of the very same criminal
activities that this story proves that it condoned, prior to the intervention of federal authorities. It
most dramatically will prove the nature of its integrity, or lack thereof. International Signal &
Control, (ISC) is the controversial player in this web of conspiracy. In 1987, the third largest
employer in Lancaster County, a non-discrete defense contractor. In all due respect to our beloved
country, this report is in no way challenging the policies or the activities of the Department of
Defense, or the vast agencies of the Intelligence Community, especially the CIA or the NSA

Defense, or the vast agencies of the Intelligence Community, especially the CIA or the NSA
(National Security Advisory). with regards to ISCs foreign dealings. Trying to protect the world of
malicious and evil empires is a process which never ends, and whos players are constantly
changing. And our respective intelligence agencies are continually challenged with the task of trying
to make a difference, in accordance with protecting our national security. Unfortunately, given the
nature of their discrete activities, and given the CIAs history of avoiding congressional approval in
certain situations, our current laws are void of effectively dealing with the peripheral catastrophes
of such activities that inherently transpire. The CIA remains immune, while everyone outside suffers
the
consequences.
The fact that the CIA, or anyone of the other intelligence community, may have been involved,
does not grant a blanket of immunity over activities which were not material to protecting our
national security. If a company provides a service to anyone in the intelligence community, our
constitution, our laws, and its respective commercial regulatory authorities, must still have the full
sense of their jurisdiction. The intelligence community may not have the right of intervention into
the commercial enterprise, or organization, circumventing the rights of its employees, shareholders,
creditors, and customers. No United States law or statute suggests that there is any involuntary
mandate that requires any of the preceding to compromise their interests in the respective
enterprise for the sake of national security, or the respective intelligence agency. There must be
considerations paid to all involved for those rights and interests that compromise such a
relationship. Otherwise, the CIA could effectively gain control of any domestic corporation it so
desires, without ever owning one share of its outstanding stock, simply by enlisting its product or
services for the sake of national security. The CIA requires a formal vehicle to enlist the aid of our
domestic commercial enterprises. ISC is a proven and unfortunate example of that.
This victim was a shareholder of record of International Signal & Control (ISC) for the previous four
years prior to when this tragic ordeal began. The victim was to purchase the stock from now
Republican Pennsylvania Senator Gib Armstrong, who was in the brokerage business at the time
and selling ISC stock. The stock was sold over the London Securities Exchange, supposedly for
reasons to suppress information. The victim was interested in the stock because of his appetite for
technology, and was more curious about the business of ISC, than anything. In fact, the victim had
never made any inference to any of the illicit dealings with Iraq. However, the perpetrators of this
story, attempt to hide behind a vale of national security," in an effort to find legal immunity from
all wrongdoing. In accordance, the record will prove that this is merely a smoke screen used to
intimidate
and
obstruct
the
victims
access
for
due
process
of
the
law.
The trials and tribulations of this victim are unprecedented in terms of emotional and
psychological duress, fortunately his indestructible faith in God, and his enduring belief in himself
and the truth, endures his life. There was one attempt on the his life, days within the public
disclosure of the CIAs involvement with the local Lancaster County defense contractor (ISC), which
Ted Kopel reported on ABC News Nightline, on May 23, 1991, 4 years after the initial cover up
began. This story will depict a series of systematic and strategic offensive attacks upon this victim
and his businesses that will result failed business enterprises, and a Hollywood motion picture,
deserted. An impeccable professional reputation and a flawless credit rating purposely sabotaged.
Financial opportunities, that in 1987, were almost impossible to extrapolate, Vast financial
opportunities
and
aspirations
forever
a
part
of
history.
This
horrendous
crime was perpetrated for the interest of a cover up, further protecting the corrupt enterprises of
Lancaster County's International Signal & Control (ISC). A quest for justice that polarized every
relationship the victim maintained, in Lancaster County and beyond, including friends and family.
This story demonstrates a methodology of his perpetrators for keeping this victim quarantined
from justice and public disclosure, through a malicious means of credibility proponents, and
horrendously deceptive tactics. Financial motives prominently displayed in the hands of all of the
perpetrators, which absolves the burden for a traditional conspiracy..
The emotional response to the truth of this story is compelling, to say the least. Subsequently, the
startling keen sense of perception that the victim had demonstrated, is even more intriguing. It is
this extraordinary quality that is responsible for saving his life, while yet at the same time providing

Advanced Media Group

Page 22 of 121

09/14/2007

this extraordinary quality that is responsible for saving his life, while yet at the same time providing
his perpetrators with an alibi and a vehicle for discrediting his startling allegations and his story.
This story embellishes a dichotomy of perception that had Hollywood producers from his film project
call his work genius, while his perpetrators from the Lancaster County Community conveniently and
maliciously labeling him as insane and emotionally disturbed."
THE LANDSCAPE
The perplexing question of the victims intelligence, or lack thereof, is best analyzed as a question
of perception. However it terms of the legal consequences of the activities contained herein, they
are of little if any relevancy. The fact of the matter is that the mental deficiencies have very little
relevancy to this story, other than serving as a means to discredit the victim, a vehicle to facilitate
the cover up, and a blanket of immunity for all of the perpetrators.
The heart of this victims legal dogma is best described as follows: If a person, is perceived to have
a mental deficiency; yet whose actions and decisions are always proven to be instinctually and
amazingly prudent, always abiding within the law, and in the best interest of his affairs, what rights
and protection do the laws afford him from persons abusing that perception, in order to yield
political and financial rewards, as a direct consequence of his demise? Furthermore, how does the
law protect his rights, if any and all malicious acts against this victim, are constantly and
immediately disregarded because he is perceived to not to be credible? As this story unfolds,
these questions will become even more troubling and appalling. Although the victim could never
describe the pain of his trauma, he would often say that the closest situation that may compare is
that of a woman being continuously raped, night after night, helplessly praying for relief, struggling
to free herself from her captor, all with no avail. He would call it as being brain f------.
The victim, coming from the lower middle class of Lancaster City, was only 29 years old when this
tragedy began. Coming from a broken home, he was the third of six boys. While at a very young
age, he would help his mother run a dry cleaning business, in an amazing similarity like Lisa
Michelle Lambert, he had also nursed his mother during bouts of depression. While in high school,
he was nursing his mothers depression, while at same time tending to his older brothers bouts of
schizophrenia. The victim had learned to listen to the obscenities of mental illness since he was a
child. He learned to fill the shoes of his absent father in helping his mother raise his three younger
brothers.. The victim was often called the little old man because of his extraordinary maturity as a
child. The victim was determined to break the barrier of the Good Ole Boys club or the power
elite, and had always felt a sense of compassion for those less fortunate, and those neglected by
those of material means, the oppressed and impoverished. He had an undivided aspiration to
someday make a difference to those that could not help themselves, especially his older brother.
Through his ingenious, resourceful, and honest business approach, he was relentlessly growing his
business and their respective missions, in constant reminder of his oppression. His in depth
understanding of computer technology and his vision were his most powerful allies. Always pushing
the envelope for advanced technologies and seeking solutions for the most efficient means of his
operations.. He knew that every break was going to be few and far between, he dedication himself
to his work, and married his business affairs, always embracing his projects with a passion.
In 1986, after serving on the Board of Directors for the Central Pennsylvania Chapter of
International Association of Financial Planners (IAFP), the victim had made a large contribution to
increasing its membership and its awareness among local professionals, as its vice president. In an
effort to promote the organization, the victim solicited a nationally recognized and prominent
financial planner from Washington, D.C., to be a headline speaker at a dinner meeting. Ms.
Alexandra Armstrong, one of the most nationally recognized financial planners, often headlined in
Money Magazine, attracted 100 industry professionals to the Treadway Resort Inn. The attendance
was unprecedented for the local IAFP chapter. The IAFP is the authoring organization for
certification as a financial planner. It was through the direct conversations with Ms. Armstrong
regarding his ideas and her experience, that inspired the victim to pursue his ambitions of growing
his own financial firm, which he began in the following months.

Disgruntled with the conflicts of interest and the lack of incentive for various professionals to work
together in managing ones wealth, a process which lacked efficiency, this entrepreneur founded
the firm Financial Management Group, Ltd., or FMG as it was often called. The firm was to
incorporate a one-stop-shopping strategy and incorporate financial services, legal, accounting, tax
preparation, real estate, insurance, mortgage banking, and estate services all in one firm, all
residing in one location, all taking advantage of the synergistic approach toward managing wealth.
And to provide the professionals long term security and equity participation, all participants were
encouraged to purchase stock in the company. This was a new and innovative approach that
attracted a lot of attention from investors and clients, but also came a lot of nervous twitches from
competitors, especially in conservative Lancaster County.
The victim began recruiting professionals from all of the other firms, with great success. He had
enlisted two partners whom he had worked with at IDS/American Express, to carry out his mission,
which he began after extensive market studies and his early version of the company, Pro Financial
Group, Ltd., His two partners had followed the victim to an independent broker dealer in Atlanta,
named Financial Services Corporation, where Ms. Alexandra Armstrong was associated, and
encouraged the victim to visit, during their discussion after dinner. Within one year, by June of
1987,
the
firm
had
invested
over
$40
million
for
respective
clients.
The company had developed satellite offices throughout Pennsylvania and in several other states,
through his unique design. This firm was causing the other financial services companies and the
local banks in Lancaster County a run for their money. The firm had built a new 20,000 square foot
office building just a few miles north of the city. The firm was attracting clients, associates, and
nervous attention from, well just about everybody. Considering the capabilities, legal, real estate,
insurance, financial services, accounting, FMG was making as many enemies as it was making
friends. And the victim always believed in the premise that its always better to have people talking
about you, regardless of the matter, than to have no one notice you. And they were talking. The
victim was only in his late twenties when he started this organization,. He held several positions, he
was Executive Vice President and Secretary of Financial Management Group Ltd, and President of
FMG, Advisory, Inc., which was one of the many subsidiaries parent company owned. The victim
acted as the architect and legal administrator of the organization, in addition to building his own
financial planning clients. He filed all of the articles of incorporation in the Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania and submitted all of the tedious and rigorous filings necessary for the Pennsylvania
Securities Commission, which were very demanding considering the victim was selling stock of his
company to his associates and investors. The victim and his associates had also attracted some
very prominent Lancastrianss to invest in his venture, coming from various professional circles, all
infatuated with this extraordinary and intriguing concept of this young victim. All had seen its
potential for success and financial reward.
Many of his friends were involved, and in Lancaster, everyone knows everybody, so it seams.. And
everyone talks, gossip is as common as jogging. This exaggerated trait of Lancaster County, will
later to come back to haunt this victim, in a way that is most sickening. In a way that will parallel
the attitudes and sentiments in the Lisa Michelle Lambert story.
In 1987, his business affairs were reaching a point of incredible success. In fact, most of his family
and friends, have always questioned the merits of their legitimacy. He always conducted his affairs
with the presumption that time could not afford the opportunity to complete his agenda, while at
the same time disclosing his business affairs to persons that were not directly involved..
Accomplishing his mission was first and foremost. But in Lancaster County, that was difficult.
Lancastrianss have a notion to fear what they dont know, and will always believe what they think
they know, regardless of its merits. In Lancaster County new ideas are shunned unless coming
from their own, and their own ideas are often kept close at bay, inhibiting progress and stymieing
learning. By June of 1987, a majority of his business affairs were conducted out of the grasp of
Lancaster County, his unknown activities made others curious, especially in Lancaster County,
where the blessing of the power elite was essential for success. But, deep down inside, he knew he

Advanced Media Group

Page 24 of 121

09/14/2007

where the blessing of the power elite was essential for success. But, deep down inside, he knew he
could never be accepted, because he did not descend from a family of social grace. This fueled his
aspirations for success even further, committed to prove that intelligence was innate and learned,
not a direct correlation to material wealth or social grace.
One of his most cherished testimonials to his concept, his reputation, and his mission, was provided
by an elder attorney, Mr. Kenellm Shirk, a very respected and prominent older Lancaster attorney,
who was part of the status quo. Mr. Shirk had petitioned the Pennsylvania Bar Association, after
meeting with the victim, to obtain their blessing and their knowledge of any laws which would forbid
his firm to provide a satellite office in the headquarters of Financial Management Group, Ltd., (FMG)
Mr. Shirks firm was to provide a partner, and estate services to the clients of FMG. The
Pennsylvania Bar provided a lengthy recommendation that did not prohibit a relationship, although
cautioned it to proceed with careful review. The fact that the very young and unknown victim could
attract an elder, conservative Lancaster County attorney to associate with his firm was an
encouraging sign of respect. Ironically, Mr. Shirk is the father of Roy Shirk Jr., Lisa Michelle
Lamberts first attorney who represented her during trial of 1992, the proceeding which was the
center of Judge Dalzalls controversial and appalling findings. The victim prided himself on his
entrepreneurship , and after building the foundation for FMG, he set out to take advantage of its
resources and its synergism.
By June of 1987, the victim had developed a fairly substantial mortgage banking relationship with a
Houston, Texas banker. That operation was capable of providing lending to potential developers and
businesses in the range of $ 3 million to $100 million. And the lending packages were as
competitive if not more competitive than the local lending institutions of Lancaster County, capable
with even higher lending limits. In a matter of months of securing this relationship, the victim and
his partner were evaluating deals from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Florida, and as far
away as California.
There was a uniqueness to his capabilities that was very appealing to potential borrowers. Because
of the vast array of services of FMG, potential developers had the opportunity to obtain both debt
and equity financing through his companies. In plain terms, most shopping centers raised capital by
raising funds through investors coupled with a mortgage. This gave potential developers one place
to take down the deal rather than dealing with many other professionals at the same time. It was
a much more efficient process for all. The victim was capable of providing a mortgage, while at the
same time selling shares in a shopping center through its vast client base of investors at FMG. This
also gave the victim a formidable presence into the venture capital markets, by way of his strong
ability to raise capital through his vast portfolio of clients of FMG. And this was a rarity that
developers and investors loved. Investors were attracted because they could invest in equity type
real estate projects with real sense of knowing the developer, or kicking the bricks of the project.
This was far different than investing in a nationally syndicated project, with properties scattered all
over the country, and with developers that they did not know. The synergistic approach to his
organization began paying dividends by developing other peripheral markets and businesses.
Given the complex nature of the victims design of FMG, internal struggles within the organization
readily became the challenge. Orchestrating the relationships among all of the different
professionals, and trying to adhere to the interests of the clients, the professionals and of the firm,
FMG, managing the daily activities required immense thought and prudence on the part of the
principals. Of, course, the victim assumed honesty and integrity to be a given. And for most it was.
However there were times when the senior partner engaged in tactical rights of power.
In the later part of 1986, after the victim had developed FMG to the point where its future was on
stable grounds, his two partners conveniently attempted to circumvent his position and regain
control of his stock and the firm. In fact, after the victim refused to collaborate on a scheme to set
up his other partner, the remaining two partners began to attempt to regain the victims control.
Through intimidating techniques, the partners began to attack his presence. The victim became
agitated, especially because he played the lead role and was responsible for the formation of the
company, methodically designing and developing its foundation, with great success. And now after

Advanced Media Group

company, methodically designing and developing its foundation, with great success. And now after
the company was beyond its point of greatest risk, due to in large part the victims efforts, the
other two partners wanted to take advantage of his work, and take the cream of the pie for their
own financial gain. It was a difficult task to carry out because the victim was the most respected of
all three partners, consistently keeping their respective policies in the best interest of the firm and
of the other associates and stockholders. In fact, most feared that the loss of control of the victim
would ultimately lead to adverse consequences. However the two partners trued unsuccessfully to
weaken his position, and when that didnt work, they focused on weakening the victim, via
intimidation and humiliation The coup and hostile environment caused a state of depression for the
victim, although he kept to his daily duties and responsibilities, accordingly, he called a client and
friend who was a psychiatrist, whom he trusted and respected. It was easy access to a professional,
yet on a very informal basis. Because the victim had a family history of mental deficiencies, he
wanted to seek the proper help.
The psychiatrist had diagnosed the victim as having Bi Polar Mood disorder. The psychiatrist had
quickly discounted any correlation between the current state of affairs, and his partners abuse. The
psychiatrist rationale was that because the startup of the company was so successful in such a
short period of time , and his demonstrated intelligence and creativity, the victim must have been
in a state of mania, and of course now, was subsiding in a state of depression, the typical cycle for
manic depressants. The victim complied with the psychiatrist. And after refusing to sell out to his
partners, vowed to regain his business and rescind any efforts to give up his claim to his
accomplishments. The depression soon faded. The victim never disclosed the fact that he had
sought help to anyone other than family members. This coup lead to the victims aggressive
approach to grow the business, and to posture himself in projects that would ultimately remain in
his control, out of the influence of his partners. Particularly the mortgage banking activities and the
digital
movie,
which
he
did
successfully,
but
apparently
too
successfully.
THE DIGITAL MOVIE
Through an act of fate, in February of 1987, the victim found himself in a meeting with Tony
Bongiovi at Power Station studios. Through one of his partners, he reluctantly traveled to New York
to consider financing a motion picture. The victims own lack tolerance for the risk associated with
film investments was overshadowed by the opportunity to visit a recording studio. Although his
associate was a friend of Tonys, he was not familiar with his accomplishments, or his work, so he
thought. If nothing else, it was a weekend away from Lancaster, and a chance to visit the Big
Apple. Intriguingly, he found more than he had ever imagined on that weekend excursion. Tony
Bongiovi, a musical genius, whos credits include one of the most recognized recording studios in
the country, Power Station Studios. Tony Bongiov produced the sound track for Star Wars, and is
responsible for the format of one of the most successful recording artist of the 80s, Jon Bon Jovi,
his cousin. Power Station has recorded the albums for some of the most influential artists of all
time, including Diana Ross, Madonna, The Rolling Stones, Steve Winwood, Bruce Springsteen, etc.,
Tony, an eccentric genius, of Italian decent, had many talents, from music to aerospace
engineering. The victims associates sister met Tony while he flew his plane into Lancasters airport
for repairs. They dated for some time and the victims associate and Tony became friends, which
led the victim to Tonys Power Station Studios.
Tony was looking to finance his new project, which was to be the first digital movie. And, given the
victims extreme appetite for technologies, coupled with his amazing sense of perception, he
dramatically recognized the future evolution for the technical merits of delivering digital video and
digital audio entertainment to the mass markets. By June of 1987, the victim was positioned as the
Executive Producer, collaborating with Flatbush Films of Hollywood California, the movie producers,
entrusted with the mission of finding investors to provide funding for the first digital movie, and to
manage the ensuing business elements it required.
The movie was to be shot on-location at the Jersey shore points, mostly in Wildwood. Tony
strategically envisioned making a movie in the horror genre. There were several specific reasons
that supported this strategy. First, he determined that it was the least expensive format to produce,
we all estimated a budget of $4 million for the production and post production. Secondly, the horror

Advanced Media Group

Page 26 of 121

09/14/2007

we all estimated a budget of $4 million for the production and post production. Secondly, the horror
genre would compliment a very intense sound track. The sound track was important to enhance the
new digital format, and also provide the means to introduce a new band that he had been grooming
in his studio for the past several years, French Lick, his predecessor to Bon Jovi. There had been
bad blood between Tony and his cousin Bon Jovi, which resulted in legal disputes pertaining to
Tonys financial interests in Jons success. It was an unfortunate situation considering Tonys father
and Jons father were brothers living in the same area. It was a subject that Tony never wanted to
discuss, except for his contributions toward Jons career.
If by another act of fate, the victim had the privilege of meeting one of the many superstars while
working at Power Station studios. While growing up, at an early age, the victim would sneak up into
the bedroom of his oldest brother, and start up his old General Electric stereo phonograph and
listen to his favorite album - Diana Ross and the Supremes. It was a passion and a ritual that
provided an early infatuation to music, and to Diana Ross. The victim was only 10 or 11 years old.
And at this early age, he noticed and listened to the annoying hiss, that conventional hiss that
always seemed to overshadow the music, whether played on an album, on the radio, 8-track tape,
or cassette.
And in a mystical twist of fate, while engrossed in a project dedicated to delivering music without
that hiss (digital) - the victim opened the door to the recording suite to pack his bags for the
journey back to Lancaster; - and there she sat, with a glowing array of beauty, more beautiful than
any picture could ever tell, Ms. Diana Ross. She was pregnant and in the middle of a recording
session, for a new album. Her assistant quickly demanded, in a stern and protective voice, that we
leave, and the victim and his associate replied this is our makeshift bedroom, we are just
gathering our belongings. The victim walked toward Diana Ross, who was seated near his bag, and
she asked and who are you?, the victim calmly replied his name and absorbed as much of her
beauty as his eyes could behold before walking out the door. The room that was his bedroom the
nigh before, and suddenly transfixed into the recording suite of Diana Ross, thinking back some
twenty years earlier, one of the many gifts that God would bestow upon him. A living memorial and
reminder to his older brother, who died on Christmas day of 1985, his best friend who taught him
two of his greater pleasures in life, Diana Ross, and listening to music. He prayed that his brother
was watching from above.
And so, the digital movie project that the victim had embraced in 1987 had personal significance,
and he never ever doubted his instincts regarding the technical merits of the project. The victims
perception that the entertainment industry would deliver full length motion pictures in a truly digital
medium will later become a truly remarkable vision.
The technical merits of this project and at this particular time with respect to the victims extreme
sense of perception require analysis. To truly understand this time perception, some of the
attributes of digital technologies need to be fully understood. In 1987, Compact DISC (CD)
technology was only now being introduced to the commercial markets. The victims own crafting of
his joint venture proposals, dominated by the term digital movie, is in itself some 4 or 5 years
away. In 1987, there was very little use of the term digital, with the exception of research and
development engineers. The victim will, throughout the documentation of this story, will have
preceded a terminology that has literally become the root of most technological advancements in
the computer and telecommunications industries of our present day, 10 years after the victims
vision. Today, digital is found to be part of or referred to in just about every product available in
the commercial markets.
During May of 1987, the victim had created a joint venture proposal for SONY Entertainment, Inc.,
for the digital movie. After weeks of researching the current state-of-affairs within SONY, and after
his proposal was completed, SONY publicly announced their desire to open the markets for new and
emerging technologies on the cover of TIME magazine, another demonstrated sense of perception.
It was this proposal, when delivered to one of the Hollywood producers in Santa Monica, California,
after reading a draft of the proposal she said you are a genius. The proposal was introduced to
Tony Bongiovi at the Wildwood Boardwalk, where many of scenes were to be shot, and he approved

Advanced Media Group

Page 27 of 121

09/14/2007

Tony Bongiovi at the Wildwood Boardwalk, where many of scenes were to be shot, and he approved
of the proposal and thought that it had great merits. Tony, who wanted very to do with the
business elements of his project, gave the victim complete authority to secure the financing of the
project, with a salary as Executive Producer, and a percentage of the profits on the back end.
After review of the victims research and proposals, his vision and his passion, unfortunately
without his efforts, has come to be known as Direct Satellite System, or DSS, which is Sonys
satellite entertainment system (TV), delivering digital audio and digital video entertainment. That
technology is fast eroding at the cable industry. The victim had his patent research center around
the PSDMS system, the Power Station Digital Movie System. And that was in 1987, some seven
years before SONY delivered his dreams. Later the victim would also accurately predict that the
90s would become the Information Age because of the direct contributions and advancements of
digital technologies, which is directly responsible for the development of the INTERNET.
The victims obsession with his digital movie has proven to be one of his most remarkable
demonstrations of his keen sense of perception.

Just when things are going smoothly, and we begin to feel a little too comfortable and too confident with CD-ROM
technology, someone or something puts us in our place -- and thankfully so. It's these challenges that facilitate our
progress toward broadening the horizons of CD-ROM technologies
This article is intended to inform publishers and manufacturers of the problems that can be encountered in using
UNIX tar-formatted files as a medium of data submission for CD-ROM production and some of the issues
confronting the next generation of CD-ROM publishers. Databases developed on non-DOS-based3 systems which
have performance requirements that exceed MS-DOS capabilities are becoming more commonplace. Ironically,
the existing CD-ROM production infrastructure has been created and supported primarily by DOS-based systems.
Although we are making progress in publishing data on other platforms, a large majority of the CD-ROMs
published today are still designed on DOS machines for use on DOS machines. The current tendency to link CDROM with DOS is making difficult the implementation of CD-ROM technology on non-DOS systems and, therefore,
slowing its widespread acceptance. 3DOS is a trademark of the International Business Machines Corporation
(IBM) and MS-DOS is a trademark of the Microsoft Corporation.
The ensuing paragraphs illustrate the need for the CD-ROM industry become more in tune with the trends which
are shaping information technologies. CD-ROM, which is one such information technology, is beginning to recruit
a new breed of both users and publishers, which are hoping that CD-ROM will adapt to them, as opposed to them
having to adapt to it. The Automated Speech Recognition Group of the National Institute of Standards and
Technology (NIST) is one such CD-ROM publisher.

The NIST Automated Speech Recognition Group


Sponsored in part by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency Information Science and Technology
Office (DARPA-ISTO), the group designs and implements methods of performance evaluation for spoken
language systems. These systems consist of natural language understanding as well as speech recognition
components. Additionally, it distributes databases, or corpora, of speech recordings as standard reference
material for the development and evaluation of these systems.
Traditionally, these speech corpora have been recorded and stored in a digital form rather than in an analog audio
format. This allows the data to be easily loaded, stored, and manipulated in computers and prevents signal
degradation in copies. The speech is digitized at a sampling rate of between 10 and 20 kHz., as opposed to the

degradation in copies. The speech is digitized at a sampling rate of between 10 and 20 kHz., as opposed to the
44.1 kHz. sampling rate used in CD-audio. Digitizing speech at these sampling frequencies keeps intact the
properties of the speech signal that are important for automatic speech recognition while minimizing storage
requirements. These corpora typically consist of thousands of spoken phrases or sentences which are stored in
separate files for ease of computer manipulation.
In the mid 1980's, the NIST began an archival/lending library for public domain speech corpora. The corpora were
originally maintained and distributed on half-inch reel-to-reel digital magnetic computer tapes. Initially, these
corpora were small, but as recognition systems became more sophisticated, their appetite for "training" data grew
tremendously. By the end of the decade these corpora were each occupying 50 or more 6250 bpi. half-inch
magnetic tapes and even larger databases were on the horizon. Managing these colossal databases of speech
had become a real problem. Simply storing, copying, and distributing the corpora had become unwieldy.
Furthermore, maintaining the integrity of the corpora was even more difficult as tapes were frequently damaged in
shipment or by rogue tape drives.
NIST and CD-ROM
By early 1988, the NIST Automated Speech Recognition Group had begun investigating optical disk storage
technologies as a means of replacing its tape archives. Initially, Write-Once Read- Many (WORM) technology was
considered for use as a universal distribution medium but was found to lack adequate standardization. Fortunately,
in the Spring of 1988, the ISO-9660 file format standard for CD-ROM was adopted and CD-ROM was chosen by
NIST as a new "experimental" medium for distributing speech corpora.
NIST decided that the first corpus to be produced on CD-ROM would be the DARPA "TIMIT" Acoustic-Phonetic
Continuous Speech Corpus. Under DARPA sponsorship, TIMIT was jointly designed, recorded, transcribed, and
archived by Texas Instruments (TI) , the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), SRI International, and the
National Bureau of Standards (now NIST). The TIMIT corpus was designed to provide speech data for the
acquisition of acousticphonetic knowledge and for the development and evaluation of automatic speech
recognition systems. The corpus contains recordings of 630 speakers from 8 major dialect divisions of American
English each speaking 10 phonetically-rich sentences. In addition to standard orthographic (text) transcriptions,
TIMIT contains unique time-aligned phonetic transcriptions.
NIST felt that TIMIT's unique structure would be of great interest to speech researchers and, therefore, would
probably be ideal for widespread publication on CD-ROM. NIST decided to publish two-thirds of the corpus on a
"prototype" CD-ROM. Because of the ISO-9660 restrictions on filename length and format, the chosen two-thirds
of the corpus to be placed on CD-ROM was restructured from a flat directory structure with lengthy unique UNIX
filenames into a dense 5-level directory hierarchy, which reflected the design of the corpus and conformed to ISO9660. The resulting directory structure contained 4200 bottom-level subdirectories -- one for each sentenceutterance, and 3 files per utterance for a total of 12,600 data files! This new organization required the use of the
entire path and filename to uniquely identify a file but was "visually navigable.
To date, more than 200 "TIMIT Prototype" discs have been distributed to universities and speech research
laboratories worldwide. The discs were well received by the speech research community and have been read on
PC's, Macintoshes4, various UNIX systems, NeXT5 machines and MicroVAXes6. The "experiment" had proved to
be successful.
As of this writing, NIST has produced four releases of speech corpora on eight discs. Recently, NIST completed
production of its most ambitious speech disc so far. The new disc is a complete revision of the TIMIT Prototype
disc and contains the speech for the complete 630-speaker corpus as well as all-new time aligned word-boundary
transcriptions. The new TIMIT CD-ROM contains 25,200 data files (4 files per utterance) as well as more
extensive documentation and software utilities.
After the production of the TIMIT prototype disc, NIST recognized the need to distribute speech 4Macintosh is a

Unfortunately, no standard file format existed for storing and exchanging speech signals. Compounding this
problem, almost every speech research laboratory around the world used different hardware and software
configurations for speech signal processing and analysis
A UNIX-Based CD-ROM Preparation Workstation
In order to implement a full scale CD-ROM production effort, the Automated Speech Recognition Group built a
UNIX-based CD-ROM publishing workstation, which also doubles as a general-purpose speech research system.

UNIX-based CD-ROM publishing workstation, which also doubles as a general-purpose speech research system.
CD-ROM images are prepared on a Sun Microsystems server system with 32 megabytes of main memory, 3
gigabytes of high-speed magnetic disc storage, a 9- track tape drive, an 8mm tape drive, and of course a CDROM drive. The workstation contains two 1.2 gigabyte magnetic disc drives on which entire CD-ROM images can
be assembled and simulated.
Each CD-ROM is now organized entirely in the UNIX environment. Many of the standard UNIX utilities and
capabilities have proven ideal tools for CD-ROM preparation. Tar files are now submitted for CD-ROM replication
on one 8mm tape, instead of 5 or 6 half-inch reel-to-reel tapes.
UNIX-based CD-ROM premastering software is planned to be added in the near future to help alleviate some of
the complications NIST has experienced in submitting data for replication. By performing ISO-9660 formatting in
house, an ISO-9660 image can be submitted to the replication facility. The ISO-9660 image can then be directly
loaded into a mastering system thus circumventing the problems which can occur downloading tar-formatted
files.
NIST has developed strategies to maximize the portability of its CD-ROMs by organizing speech data into a
consistent format and providing utilities which can be linked into each laboratory's unique hardware and software
systems. To accomplish this, a flexible, object-oriented header structure was developed for the exchange of
speech files, especially on CD-ROM. The header is an ASCII-based structure prepended to each speech file and
allows an utterance to be uniquely identified (even if the file is copied from CD-ROM and inadvertently renamed)
and describes basic attributes of the speech signal to aid in digital to analog operations. A set of software utilities
have been written, "Speech Header Resources" (SPHERE), to provide a low-level interface for importing and
manipulating these files. NIST now publishes all speech data in this more consistent format.
A Data Submission Problem
All of the key components for efficient CD-ROM production were in place at NIST, except for a vehicle for data
submission. When NIST initially delved into the world of CD-ROM production, it was dismayed to learn that most
CD-ROM replication facilities accepted only standard ANSI labeled or ISO-9660 imaged tapes as transfer media.
The small Automated Speech Recognition Group could not justify the expense of purchasing a special-purpose
premastering workstation dedicated to creating ISO-9660 tapes. Neither could NIST provide standard ANSIlabeled tapes because the simple structure of ANSI-formatted files would not preserve the extensive directory
structure
required
by
the
many
files
typically
contained
in
speech
corpora.
The UNIX tar Answer?
The tar-formatted tape is the standard medium of data exchange in the UNIX world and NIST had been
successfully distributing speech corpora on "tar tapes" for several years. The UNIX tar (Tape Archive) utility was
designed to create a portable archive format for UNIX files. The tar program generates a single file (usually on
magnetic tape) which contains all of the information necessary for reconstituting directories, files, and UNIXspecific file parameters. What distinguishes the tar utility from most other archive programs is that the archive
format it creates is portable across machines and operating systems. The key to the tar format's portability is in its
simplicity. Tar does not employ any elaborate compression algorithms when generating an archive. It simply
creates a byte-for-byte copy of each file to be archived with a prepended header block. The header block contains
the path and name of the file (or directory), the file size, the time of last modification, and UNIX ownership and
permission flags. Because the information in the each header block as well as the file itself is byte-encoded, the
tar file can be read by any system which can recognize a stream of bytes. Of course, binary executable files are
system-specific and cannot usually be implemented on differing systems. But text, source code, and binary data
files
can
be
easily
exchanged.
To date, the tar program has been ported to many operating systems, including MS-DOS and VMS8 as well as the
many variants of UNIX. Because the tar format is portable and preserves directory hierarchy, and because a tar
file can be written to a standard ANSI-labeled tape or any other storage medium, NIST concluded that tar
formatted ANSI tapes would be the ideal vehicle for providing a CD-ROM-ready file image to a replication plant.
Unfortunately, NIST has found that most replication plants either refuse to accept tar-formatted files or they charge
considerable "data conversion" fees to download the files into their premastering systems. To say the least, the
acceptance of tar as an input medium for CD-ROM production has been less than universal by the CD-ROM
replication industry. The replication facilities that have ventured into the "tar pit" with NIST have frequently
encountered technical delays and cost overruns. In theory, the tar-tape to CD-ROM process should be simple.
But in reality, it has rarely been straightforward to implement. Pitfalls in Extracting a CD-ROM Image from a UNIX

But in reality, it has rarely been straightforward to implement. Pitfalls in Extracting a CD-ROM Image from a UNIX
tar File The challenges encountered in producing a CD-ROM from a 630-megabyte tar tape, which contains over
25,000 files, can at first seem insurmountable. Several problems have occurred during production, some of which
are still not completely resolved. Downloading and extracting a CD-ROM image from a tar file can be
excruciatingly slow, taking 15 or more machine hours of time for a single disc image. If a tar file is packed with
thousands of files, unforeseen complications can arise in the extraction process, and diagnosing and
troubleshooting all of the subsystems involved can become painful for even the most experienced of engineers
and technicians.
Extracting the file structure from a tar file for a CD-ROM such as the new TIMIT disc requires a great deal of time
and attention because of the extraordinary number of directories and files. The subsystems involved in the tar
extraction process require seamless integration. These include the PC hardware platform and MS-DOS operating
system, the premastering system, the device drivers, controller cards, tape back-up systems, and the tar utility.
Limitations inherent in the MS-DOS operating system, device drivers, and file structures can result in breakdowns
in any one of these subsystems resulting in the loss of hours of man and machine time in the production process.
Eight-mm tape subsystems can be especially vulnerable when extracting exceedingly large numbers of files. This
is because 8mm tape drives are mechanically suited for streaming operations. They are not as accommodating as
9-track tape drives in the quick stopping and starting movements, which become necessary when extracting many
thousands of small files. Additional loss of efficiency occurs when 8mm drives must interface with a system, which
has become bogged-down with overloaded magnetic disk sub-systems. The only way to optimize their operation is
to load and buffer large blocks of raw data before it is tar-extracted. Subtle problems may also arise when the
controller cards of some 8mm tape systems are not entirely compatible with the publishing system being used.
These and other unforeseen problems can cause a tape drive to abort operations well before completion of the
extraction process. Worse yet, because the tar format does not guarantee that directories and files are stored in
any particular order, an entire tar file must be scanned to extract any subset of files contained in it. If the tarextraction process aborts before the end of the tar file is reached, the entire process must be restarted from the
beginning to insure that all files are loaded. These constraints require that special efforts be taken to prepare
backup tapes and even second backup tapes during production. This is one area of risk where the insurance is
well worth the effort, and is within one's control. Many of the other pitfalls are not as easy to anticipate or avoid.
One of the more frustrating problems encountered while downloading the TIMIT tar file was that of the overhead
created while extracting the 18,900 small transcription files. To illustrate this point, during the downloading of the
632-megabyte tar file, containing the 25,241 TIMIT files, the process aborted on 650-, 850-, and 1200-megabyte
partitions due to insufficient disc space!
On UNIX systems, the size of file blocks (similar to the ISO-9660 and DOS sector structures) can be modified.
Although the ISO-9660 standard supports different sector sizes, the individual operating systems used in the
premastering process may present problems. For example, MS-DOS 3.31 does not allow any modifications to
sector size. Fortunately, MS-DOS 4.0 is more forgiving.
The TIMIT tar file contained 18,900 transcription files of under 2Kb each. A premastering system running DOS
3.31 with a 16Kb sector size would require over 300 megabytes of disk storage for these files, which actually
amount to less than 32 megabytes of data. This results in disk overhead of 1 order of magnitude! However, by
switching to DOS 4.0, the sector size can be reduced to as little as 512 bytes. This significantly reduces the
overhead being used by the DOS partition. It is therefore important to adjust the sector size to accommodate the
size of the database files to be downloaded. To maximize disk usage, the sector size should be set high when
premastering a database with a few large textual files. But when a database (such as TIMIT) contains many small
files, the sector size should be greatly reduced. Likewise, it is also important to allow for this kind of overhead on
the CD-ROM itself. Although CD-ROMs are generally created with a 2Kb sector size, the sector size can be
reduced on the ISO-9660 image in the premastering phase to as little as 512 bytes. By decreasing the sector size
on the TIMIT ISO-9660 image to 512 bytes, potential disc overhead was reduced by about 32 megabytes.
Finally, a hidden source of potential problems lies within the implementation of the utility used to extract the tar file.
There are currently a number of tar utilities that have been written and are in use today. Many of these utilities are
suboptimal in speed and efficiency. The time required for downloading a tar file can become critical when
extracting large numbers of files. Therefore, using the right tar implementation is a must.
The Real "Tar Pit" -- Universal Operability
The real problem facing the CD-ROM industry concerning the production of non-DOS-based discs lies not in which

The real problem facing the CD-ROM industry concerning the production of non-DOS-based discs lies not in which
utilities or platforms to use, but within the deeper abyss of universal operability. Universal operability encompasses
the common methodology of transferring, publishing, and retrieving many different types of data across different
platforms, while using different hardware and software systems. Attempting to extract a tar file into a DOS-based
premastering system is a perfect example of why universal operability is the next technical challenge for the CDROM industry at large. If this issue is continued to be ignored, entire market segments will be left paralyzed
because of the inability to publish information from beginning to end without experiencing compatibility problems.
This bleak scenario could result in the CD-ROM industry losing the acceptance and respect it has worked hard to
gain.
The Challenge Ahead
This article has illustrated some of the potential problems, which can result when using the UNIX tar format as a
data submission medium for CD-ROM replication. More importantly, it has shown that a much greater variety of
CD-ROM applications could blossom if the CD-ROM industry embraces a diversification of CD-ROM platforms.
The ISO-9660 standard has provided a good basis for the exchange of CD-ROMs across different hardware and
software platforms. It is now time for the CD-ROM industry to address and overcome the many obstacles faced by
the challenge of universal operability. The increasing need for a standard media- and platform-independent format
for data submission is just one such obstacle. In the short term, manufacturers of CD-ROM premastering
workstations should publish specifications indicating the limitations of their systems. This would allow publishers
and replicators of "atypical" CD-ROMs to avoid many of unforeseen pitfalls they must now face. In the long term,
these premastering systems must be made more robust

The next generation of CD-ROM publishers and users will help CD-ROM technology reach new heights, but they
will become far less forgiving as CD-ROM becomes more commonplace. For NIST, the UNIX road to CD-ROM
has certainly been "the road less traveled." Currently, the development, production, and use of CD-ROM
technology in UNIX and other environments is still in its infancy. However, by increasing support for development
and production in these environments, CD-ROMs may someday be produced and used on a variety of platforms
as easily as they are on MS-DOS-based systems today. It is only in this way that the CD-ROM will become the
truly universal medium of data exchange that it was intended to be.

Candidate Questionnaire for the


County of Lancaster Pennsylvania
Government Study Commission
(July 24, 2006)

PLEASE READ THE CANDIDATE SELECTION CRITERIA AS PUT FORTH BY THE LANCASTER COUNTY CITIZENS FOR GOVERNMENT
STUDY (available on our website at www.lccgs.org, under the Candidates Information tab).

IN A PARAGRAPH, PLEASE DESCRIBE WHY ARE YOU INTERESTED IN SERVING ON THE


GOVERNMENT STUDY COMMISSION?
I am very interested in being part of a solution to restore credibility, honesty and integrity to local
government; which would result in a better Lancaster County for all. For the past 19 years I have
been studying and evaluating the merits of local government and how it effects the community-atlarge; due in large part to an experience that required me to do the same. I have a unique
perspective on how the ill effects of disingenuous decisions escalate to the point where our current
Commissioners become marred in controversy and legal problems muting their credibility, trust and
performance. Whether a restructure of our current system is the answer remains to be seen. My
belief is that corruption and cronyism plays a vital role to the problems that confront us.
A restructuring must incorporate a system of checks and balances to improve the sense of
governance that now is at an all time low for this county. There must be cooperation between city
and county government that places the priority of greater good to all leaders and politicians in
making decisions that affect all Lancastrians. The Lancaster Convention Center project is a prime
example of what can happen when this is not the case. There is no excuse why the revitalization of
downtown Lancaster is stalled. Although you can take a survey of individual projects that have
surpassed initial expectations; the Clipper Stadium, Liberty Street Commons, James Street District,
etc,. There lacks a clear and decisive synergy that leads one to question when we will see the
thriving Downtown of yesterday. Most of the pieces seem to be in place, but a lack of vision and
leadership is stalling a real revitalization that is deserving of all Lancastrians. Cooperation and
synergy is the missing ingredient in my opinion. I am hopeful that a restructuring or the evaluation
of the merits of a restructuring will provide some insights to that problem.
OF THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES, PLEASE CHECK ALL THAT APPLY TO YOUR
BACKGROUND:
Legal; Financial; Community Advocate; Social Service; Business; Real Estate; Construction
HOW HAS ALL THAT WAS CHECKED ABOVE PREPARED YOU TO SERVE ON THE

I posses a diverse background that demonstrates a unique experience to evaluate and develop
strategic and tactical planning to a wide variety of problems. I am an expert in technologies and
have used that expertise to provide consulting to a wide variety of clients throughout the United
States and beyond. I have been involved with analyzing and developing solutions to a host of
problems that are similar to this initiative. I have founded organizations and served on boards that

Mr. Stanley Caterbone, President
FMG Advisory, Inc.

Lancaster, PA 17601
RE: Power Station
Our File: 7351-G
Dear Stan:
I have now received the results of a search pertaining to the above subject. I have also reviewed the file forwarded
with your letter of May 29. The following is my analysis and evaluation of the right to use Power Station as
defined below.
As I understand the situation, your business client, Power Station Studio, has, since 1977, operated a recording
studio with a widely regarded reputation for providing high quality recording services using state of the art
equipment. The enclosed report reveals that Power Station studio has registered the trademark "Power Station"
for sound recording studios. (See Reg. No. 1,433,328 registered March 17, 1987.) You have asked me to
investigate the possibility of Power Station expanding the use of its mark into men's and women's clothing
including beachwear; and for audio and video electronics for consumers and professionals. I have assumed that
this latter category includes radios, television receivers, video cassette recorders, audio recorders, compact disc
players, turn tables, amplifiers, receivers, tuners, control panels, mixing boards and consoles, among other things.
Based upon the results of the enclosed search, it is my opinion that it would be inadvisable for Power Station, Inc.
to use its mark for clothing as aforesaid. The basis for my opinion is Registration No. 1,431,242 registered March
3, 1987 for "Power Station". The registrant claims a first date of use of April 3, 1986 for women's clothing including
swimwear and other goods as listed
Although your client has a strong reputation, and although it has priority of use for the mark, this registrant has a
strong position for arguing that it has superior rights for women's clothing. One would not ordinarily associate
clothing in any way with recording, studio services. Thus, your client's rights in its mark do not appear to dominate
those of the registrant's. Accordingly, use of the Power Station mark for women's (or men's) clothing would involve
a significant risk of being accused of trademark infringement
Use of the Power Station mark for consumer and professional audio and visual electronic equipment raises some
issues, but on the whole I am of the opinion that it is permissible. Again, I assume, as I have been informed, that
the Power Station studio is well known and does have a good reputation for its existing services. Given that, its
movement into electronic equipment should be permissible. Here the good will associated with its current services
can
be
more
readily
extended
to
audio
visual
electronic
equipment.
The search reveals that Manville Corporation's Ken Caryl Ranch is the owner of the mark "Power Station" for
battery operated emergency electrical power supply units. See Reg. No. 1,040,308 registered May 25, 1976 and
claiming a first date of use of November 23, 1970. In my opinion/ audiovisual electronic equipment can be
considered to be sufficiently unrelated to emergency electrical power supply units to avoid a likelihood of confusion
even though the marks are identical.
I reach the same conclusion regarding the pending application by Electrical Conductors, Inc. for a multiple outlet
power strip. A closer question is raised by Gould's Supplemental Register registration for Power Station for mini
and microcomputers. Gould's mark is registered on the Supplemental Register undoubtedly because "Power
Station" as applied to computer equipment is considered to be descriptive. A Supplemental Register registration
has none of the procedural benefits of a Principle Register registration. Moreover, if Gould's use of the mark is
limited to a particular market which Is distinct from your clients/ there does not appear to be a likelihood of

limited to a particular market which Is distinct from your clients/ there does not appear to be a likelihood of
confusion. Thus, Gould may be selling its computers into a specialized commercial market if it is presently selling
computers at all.
Next I call your attention to the fact that several radio stations have adopted and are using the trademark "The
Power Station" in various cities throughout the United States. Conceivably, these radio stations could object to the
introduction of consumer electronics into their market area on the ground that the use 'of the same mark implies
sponsorship by them. I note that all of these marks were recently registered, and I suspect that all of these radio
stations are related or commonly owned. I also suspect that the adoption of this mark may be of recent vintage.
Thus, your client in any negotiation with these people would have the advantage of being a prior user, and the
relationship between recording services and electronic equipment on the one hand and radio station services and
electronic equipment on the other hand is at least co-equal. Thus, your client should have the dominant position.
In view of the foregoing, it is my opinion that The Power Station should not adopt or use "Power Station" for men's
and women's clothing, but it may adopt and use the mark for professional and consumer electronics as described
above with the understanding that the matter is not entirely without doubt and issues could arise. It is, however,
my opinion, based upon the facts presently available to me, that The Power Station, Inc. should prevail if those
issues arise.
If you have any questions concerning the foregoing, please feel free to call me.
With kindest personal regards,
Sincerely yours,

Tony Bongiovi and Power Station Studio is about to undertake one of the most interesting projects in the
entertainment industry that the Business World has ever seen. His fascinating elements of this project are as
follows:
A). Musical Overtones
B), Technology
C). Marketing and Distribution
D). Limited Downside Bisk Potential
When you put all of the above elements together in any business venture you have a very strong and powerful
entity. Now, put the above elements in one of the largest and most visible industries available in the Entertainment
Industry.
SONY OBJECTIVES
We want to position Sony as the printer manufacturer of Professional Recording Equipment in both the Record
Industry and also the Theatrical and Video Industry as well as Television and Pay TV. In addition and even mare
important we would like to credit Sony with contributing in the development of the Sony/PSDMS Digital
Recording System that will recognized throughout the World by way of several different medium exposures. This
will have tremendous effects in the way of increased sales in both the Consumer/Retail level as well as the
Professional
Environment.
SCOPE OF PROJECT
In the following paragraphs I will address the above elements and prove to support the potential for this project.
The Movie was developed to help Tony Bongiovi take his creative and genius talents in the music industry to

The Movie was developed to help Tony Bongiovi take his creative and genius talents in the music industry to
capture other industry's that are complimentary - theatrical, television and cable, video, international film and now
electronics manufacturing. Because of Tonys -track record and accomplishments in both technology and musical
production Bon Jovi! The film already will have appeal through the feature of his latest band French Lick. Tony
has used the same musical format for their first album as he used for Ben Jovi, which has sold nine ail lion albums
thus far no album has ever sold sore albums in its first six months in the history of the recording industry.
Because of the timing of the album which will dominate the musical score the two should and will compliment
one another very profitably! To further the marketability of the picture he wrapped this into a horror script widest
marketability due to international distribution and an element that will prevent the "critics" from influencing the
audiences!

To add further to the project, Tory will produce the first movie ever with a digital sound track from set to theatre
and video. This technology alone would cost anyone else 190% of the total budget just for the sound production.
This is when the project gets interesting as far as marketing and distribution is concerned. Because of the
exclusivity of the technical elements and the "band", the marketing and distribution should be powerful alone in
even
the
most
conventional
deals.

MARKETING AND DISTRIBUTION


Now

lets

take

this

project

and

look

at

it

with

regards

to

two

elements:

a). Video Industry


b). Digital recording and playing
The video industry is a 56 billion dollar industry that is in need of product, when you look at the potential for a
product that will be the first actual product that will compliment the fast paced VCR/Stereo Entertainment
components with a Musical score that nay have enough merits of its ownyou have an amazing potential for
distribution!
The Digital and Disc Industry has proven to be the future standard for recording and playing in due time. Because
of its newness, there are more people who have yet to hear the digital sound. Because of the visibility and
exposure that will come from this projectthis could be the first time ever people hear digital by way of theatre
and video! As to how many people? 1-10 - 50 - 100 million?
Well, what win be their first reaction? I NEED TO BUY A DISC PLAYER!
Their second reaction will be I WANT TO HEAR THAT SOUND IN MY NEXT TV SHOW, VIDEO, MOVIE, ETC.,
We would like Sony to commit fifteen million fear three to four future products that will follow the same format as
the Mutant Mania Project so that Tony and Sony will position themselves as the pioneer and leaders in the
industry. This will not allow composition to gain assets to the marketplace until we are all firmly situated and
profitable.
We will also assist in any way possible in the distribution of the theatrical and video distribution.
THE DEAL
In a 60 second spot in the beginning of the video, we will do commentary on Sony and its contributions to the
Digital Industry and the difference between conventional and digital recording.
I) The spot will be a commentary with music from French Lick in the background. The commentary will discuss the
Sony/PSDMS SOUND SYSTEM and the process by which the PURE SOUND Is developed. To send home our
point the "Difference Test" will be used. The movie Mutant Mania will be promoted as the FIRST Feature Film to
use
this
system.
II) Through a merchandizing campaign using the video, (similar to Top Gun"), We will market a full line of Sony will
offer a low budget but profitable disc player to all purchasers of the video. The offer will be at wholesale prices.

Advanced Media Group

Page 38 of 121

offer a low budget but profitable disc player to all purchasers of the video. The offer will be at wholesale prices.
The reason for the low budget product is that we hope when people actually get to the store they will upgrade and
buy at full retail!
For Sony it will automatically insinuate that Sony is responsible for Tonys technical accomplishments from the
view of the audience which Tory will not be concerned with. It will also promote all of Sony's entertainment
products.
We will also develop a "60" second spot to be used on television to promote the (entire project for both Sony and
Tony Bongiovi).
III) We will also include Sony Equipment in the PSDMS System that will be needed to convert the Theaters to the
New Sound System. We will convert the Theatres Free if the Theatre commits to showing the next THREE
BONGIOVI PRODUCTIONS. This will give us a guaranteed continued exposure and will give us guaranteed
distribution for both Sony Software and Bongiovi/Productions. We will recover the true costs of equipment from
distribution profits from the films.
IV. We will produce a 60 second stand alone commercial for television, cable and theatre that will be used to
promote the project before the release of Mutant Mania.
Eg: A 6O second spot utilizing the following elements:
a. French Lick
b. Rawer Station recording facility
c. Sony's contributions to the manufacturer of the equipment to produce the sound. This may show "'the
difference".
A spot showing French Lick recording in Bower Station for the Mutant Mania movie.
We would like to introduce to you the Sony/PSDMS give input on what it is. "New sit back and let us know if
you hear the difference."
What would you rather listed to when listening to feature films; video, cable or television.

MERCHANDISING DEAL
Sony will private label a "Stony Bongiovi" or Power Station line of equipment:
a). Television
b), Stereo Component
c). Disc Player
d). Video Player
The above package will include a free video of Mutant Mania of which Sony will rebate full price back to
distribution.
Tony and Stan will receive credits for complete line:
Total will be negotiated after we have an idea of Sony margins. We want to make money only if Sony makes
money!
We will also provide a marketing package for all retail outlets that is now being developed.
POWER STATION DIGITAL MUSIC SYSTEM (PSDMS)
Tony will include in Copyright Agreement that SONY EQUIPMENT must be used to be PSDMS. SONY will
receive "Credits on all video, theatrical, television, and cable "PSDMS/SONY System"
Tony and Stan will also receive credits en all systems using Sony equipment sold to other film studios Also to
be negotiated after margins are figured. We will arrange a deal where, we along with Sony, will cover exists to
install the necessary equipment in all studios. We will provide a one-day seminar to all thirty operators of the

Advanced Media Group

install the necessary equipment in all studios. We will provide a one-day seminar to all thirty operators of the
largest theatre chains.
FINANCIAL STRUCTURE
I.

Sony will only pay for expenses to produce 60-second spots. SONY and Power Station will utilize any
and all services to help produce the spot and will allow reimbursement for only true costs with no
mark-up excluding all of Tonys time, which will be free.

II.
II. Power Station and Power Productions I will receive a negotiated percentage of profits from all
profits generated from the merchandizing campaign of the Sony products and the sale that may result
to other film studios utilizing Sony equipment in the DNS System.

III.
III. We will receive three sets of a full entertainment system - Television, VCR, Stereo, Etc, that is top
of the line to help during the production of the film to be utilized by Marcia, Stan and Scott.
IV. Sony will have first right and first refusal of all and any distribution contracts for theatrical, video,
cable, and television syndications. We will promise not to even talk to anyone else until we feel that
Sony is not going to offer a fair and reasonable deal. We will give Sony a 5% margin to gain a
competitive edge.
The purpose of the above and all aspects of this Deal is to let the separate entities involved maximize their profits
for their respective talents; Tory in film and music production and Sony in manufacturing and eventually
distribution of both equipment and merchandise and later video and film distribution.
World wide marketing available after this picture through cinaworld and Marcia. Sony will be on credits of the film

SONY JOINT VENTURE PROPOSAL FOR THE DIGITAL MOVIE

V. APPENDIX
I. INTRODUCTION
Tony Bongiovi and Power Station Studio are undertaking a project that has the potential of revolutionizing the
entertainment industry. In the next few pages of this proposal, I will outline the elements involved and how Sony
can participate in this landmark event.
The technology of the recording industry has been advancing by leaps and bounds. We have seen the advances
from monaural long playing record to stereo record to compact disc. Now we are seeing tape systems that use
digital rather than analog signals appear, matching the quality of compact discs. What has happened to the
theatres? The audio portion of a film, is as responsible for the sensations one experiences at a motion picture as
the visual, yet many theatre's are still equipped only for mono sound. Why is this? We feel there are two basic
reasons.
1) The relative high cost of upgrading a theatre to be able to incorporate the advanced technologies of the audio
industry.
2) The lack of proper equipment for the film industry to produce high quality digital audio tracks.
These two problems should not be addressed separately. There is little motivation for upgrading until the product

Advanced Media Group

These two problems should not be addressed separately. There is little motivation for upgrading until the product
is available and even less motivation to produce a product that cannot be heard.
Tony Bongiovi and Ed Evans at Power Station in New York, have now made it possible to address these problems
simultaneously. Their creation of the new "Power Station Digital Movie Sound" (PSDMS), will not only enable the
film industry to produce the highest quality audio tracks for film, but will also allow theatre's to upgrade their
existing sound system at a minimal cost.
To introduce this revolutionary new sound, Bongiovi is in the process of producing a film entitled "Mutant Mania",
which is a science fiction action horror film, shot in a small ocean resort town in New Jersey. This film has many
elements that make it perfect for the introduction of PSDMS. The most prevalent of these being the heavy music
score by Bongiovi's latest band "French Lick". Producing bands is definitely one of Bongiovi's fortes. Bongiovi was
instrumental in creating "Bon Jovi" who is probably the strongest force in the rock and roll circuit today. "Bon
Jovi's" third album "Slippery When Wet", has sold more copies in a short period of time than any other band in
history.
Another is the fact that this is a horror film. The use of audio in horror films is important to create tension, fear,
excitement etc. Using a horror film also lessens the influence the critics have on the audience.
By and large this film will stand on it's own merits. Now add PSDMS, and you have a potential block buster event.
How does Sony fit into all of this?
II. SONY'S ROLE
What we are seeking to do is establish a distribution route in which the message of Sony's new technology and its
benefits can be more easily and directly passed on to the consumer.
SONY/PSDMS
Picture a one or two minute commentary at the beginning of the movie and home video, demonstrating the
difference between the quality of theatrical sound now and the new SONY/PSDMS sound. This does two things.
First, by demonstrating the difference in quality of the new sound, you reinforce in the audiences mind that it is
much better, which as you will hear, there is little doubt. Secondly it reinforces in the audience that Sony truly is a
pioneer of advanced innovative technologies.

In addition to the commentary, Sony will receive credits on the film, ie. SONY/PSDMS. We will include in the
copyright agreement that Sony Equipment must be used to be SONY/PSDMS.
Sony's name will also be strategically placed throughout the film. This may be done in the form of billboards,
advertisements, or Sony equipment being utilized
A commercial may be developed for TV promoting both the film and Sony's contributions to advanced audio
techniques in the film industry. This could be done as a joint venture between Sony and the distribution company
for the theatrical and video exhibition.

Sony Video Software Corporation will receive right of first refusal on all contracts for video and theatrical
distribution. We will allow Sony a preferred 5% margin under any other distributor for a competitive edge.

TIMING
Timing is crucial in a project that touch so many different areas.
III. MARKETING AND DISTRIBUTION

III. MARKETING AND DISTRIBUTION


Most of the industry by their own admission is at least two years away from an effort to upgrade the sound in
movie theatres. With the SONY/PSDMS system, other companies may adapt easily and economically to produce
products with digital movie sound. With companies adapting to this process, the future should see the prominence
of the SONY/PSDMS insignia much the same as you see the Dolby insignia today. This will act as a constant
reminder to the public that Sony truly is a pioneer of advanced audio visual technologies.
Sony will receive exposure in the professional market place by having the SONY/POWER STATION equipment
used in theatres and studios to produce the SONY/PSDMS sound.
The video industry is a 56 billion dollar industry that is in need of product. When you look at the potential for a
product that will be one of the first feature films to compliment the fast paced VCR/Stereo Entertainment
components, with a musical score that may have enough merits of its own, you have an amazing potential for
distribution.
The Digital and Disc Industry has proven to be the future standard for recording and playing. Because of the
relative newness of the digital format, there are more people who have yet to experience the digital sound. With
the high exposure that will come from this project, this could be the first time ever people hear digital. How many
people? 1 - 10 - 50 - 100 million?

What will be their first reaction? I need to buy a Disc Player!


Who's name will they think of first? SONY/PSDMS
IV. PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
Bongiovi and Evans at Power Station have developed a revolutionary hybrid mixing console to penetrate the video
post production market. This console was developed to enable engineers to produce high quality audio tracks for
the film industry as well as the recording industry. This new console utilizes an automation system that can be
used by both industries. This new console is especially attractive to the film industry, as it will greatly reduce
production costs since mixing costs in a recording studio are much less. At present the console that is being used
is a bastardized system that utilizes components from many different pieces of equipment, from a number of
different companies, of which Sony is one. Because we already have a working model of this console, it would
take very little time for a finished product to be manufactured that could carry the SONY name.
The other piece of equipment that is essential to the PSDMS process, is the box that enables the laser disc to
automatically read the synchronization track encoded on the film. This piece of equipment can be produced at an
extremely low cost. It is this low cost and the fact that the theatres will not have to replace their present projectors
that make digital movie sound a reality in 1988.
We feel that with consumers demanding the same quality audio at theatres, as they have become accustomed to
with their home entertainment systems, theatre owners will have little problem investing the nominal amount of
dollars involved, to upgrade their theatres for digital audio. This investment could be as low as $1000.
With the cost being so low, the distribution company may want to consider bearing the burden of this cost, if the
theatre owners agree to show Bongiovi's next three films.
FINANCIAL STRUCTURE
SONY will commit four million dollars for the production of Bongiovi's film to be released in 1988. We would like
SONY to commit fifteen million for three to four future products that will follow the same format as the first, so that
Bongiovi and SONY will position themselves as the pioneer and leaders in the industry. This will not allow
competition
to
gain
access
to
the
marketplace
until
we
are
all
firmly
situated
and
profitable.
Sony will only pay for expenses to produce 60 second spots. Tony and Power Station will utilize any and all
services to help produce the spot and will allow reimbursement for only true costs with no mark up including all of

Tony's time which will be Power Station and Power Productions I (Stan Caterbone - Power Productions I) will
receive a negotiated percentage from all revenues generated from the merchandizing campaign of the
SONY/POWER STATION products and the sale that may result to other film studios utilizing Sony/POWER
STATION equipment in the PSDMS System.
We will receive four deluxe entertainment systems - Television, VCR, Stereo, Etc. that is top of the line to help
during the production of the film
The purpose of the above and all aspects of this Proposal is to let the separate entities involved maximize their
profits for their respective talents; Bongiovi in film and music production and Sony in manufacturing and
distribution of equipment and merchandise and later video and film distribution. END

POWER STATION
Power Station was formed in 1977, in partnership with Tony Bongiovi and Bob Walters. Power Station, within a
short period of time established itself as the premiere recording facility in the world. The studios success to a large
degree is due to Bongiovi's tremendous creative talents in the fields of studio design, production and
entertainment. The ability to anticipate what the public at large wants to hear and to create a format that will
produce a highly marketable product
Bongiovi's creative genius became most evident with his recent success producing the band "Bon Jovi". After
years of work developing their talent and structuring the format for their music, "Bon Jovi" rapidly became one of
top bands in the world. Bongiovi's most recent project is a band called "French Lick", which he brought into the
studio approximately two years ago. You may have heard French Lick's music in Ron Howard's production of
Gung-Ho. French Lick's music and talent have been developed along the same format as "Bon Jovi" and have
recently been showcased to the major recording labels. Contracts should be finalized with Quantum Medium in a
few weeks. Quantum Medium is a division of MCA, owned by the same people that own MTV. French Lick is
wholly owned by Power Station, along with their first album, which gives Bongiovi the ability to use any and all the
songs from the album in the movie.
By placing the band in the movie and having the music score written by the band, we are able to take advantage
of marketing potential normally not available to other productions. The music video for the band will be shot at the
"same time as the movie and will primarily be scenes from the movie. The release of the video will be timed to
promote the opening of the movie. The release of the songs off the first album will also be -coordinated to promote
the movie. To fully understand the marketing potential the band brings to the project, picture what, gross receipts
at the box office would look like if "Bon Jovi" were appearing in a movie this year (Any movie). If French Lick does
one tenth as well as Bon Jovi, this movie is a guaranteed hit.
During Bongiovi's work on "Star Wars", "Apocalypse Now" and "Gung-ho", he was able to make many of the
contacts necessary to form the extremely talented group of artists that are essential for a production to be
successful.
Barbara Peters: Director/Writer/Producer
Barbara has directed many programs such as "Matt Houston", "Falcon Crest", "Cagney and Laoey", "Misfits",
"Berrengers", and "Remington Steele" to name a few. The film Barbara directed that convinced Tony to hire her for
this production was "Humanoids From The Deep". Humanoids was made in 1978 for $ 980,000 ($ 20,000 under
budget and four days ahead of schedule) and grossed over $28 million in domestic and foreign theatrical Sales.
This was during a period in time when the video market was in its early stages of development. A film released
today that would gross $ 28 million in 1978 dollars has even greater potential for a much higher gross with the
strong video market that is available now. What impressed Tony the most with Barbara's direction of Humanoids
was her ability to bring a high degree of quality to a film on such a limited budget.
Peter Hock: Stunt Ooordiiator/Actor/Stuntman
Peter's credits include films such as, "Trading Places", "Stepford Wives", "To Kill A Cop", "Ghost Busters", "FX",
and
a
host
of
other
Films,
Broadway,
Musicals
and
Television
Shows.
There are many factors, which contribute to a projects success. If you were to take a cross section of the movie
industry to find which types of projects were most likely to succeed, you would find that movies in the two to four
million dollar range have much greater chances of success than movies in the ten to fifteen million dollar range.
The reasons for this are quite simple. A movie in the two to four million-dollar ranges is a high enough budget to
Advanced Media Group

Page 43 of 121

09/14/2007

The reasons for this are quite simple. A movie in the two to four million-dollar ranges is a high enough budget to
produce a quality film but limiting the risk to the investor since it needs less of the market share to produce a profit.
Horror movies, from the investors point of view are the safest type of movie to finance. Horror movies have an
almost cultist following. The type of audience that attend horror movies rarely wait to see what the critics have to
say about the movie. There is a fascination with gore that this audience would rather see than have described to
them. The overseas market for movies of this genre is tremendous. In almost all cases the gross revenues from
the theatre, will be greater overseas than in the domestic (US and Canada) market. This especially holds true for
horror movies.
Over the last few years, we have been seeing a trend for movies to have a much heavier music score than in the
past. The feelings that can be invoked in an audience from audio are sometimes as great or greater than the
visual aspects of a film. With Bongiovi's experience and past track record, we are assured of having one of the
best quality sound tracks to a movie ever made. This production could very well revolutionize the movie industry in
that this will be the first time that the sound track will be totally digitized from the set to the theatre or home video.
What this means is that the quality of the sound, which is typically extremely poor in a movie theatre or home
video cassette, will now be tremendously crisp. This new movie sound will be similar to the quality you would
expect from a laser disc. Normally the costs involved to produce a movie with this type of sound track would
greatly increase the budget to a point where the project would nave an increased element of risk. With Power
Station, which already has in place state of the art equipment, some of which can be found in only one or two
other studios in the world, this sound track can be produced for a fraction of the costs that another production
company would have to pay. This greatly reduces the risk to the investor to be able to produce state of the art
audio at a fraction of the costs.
It is a very natural progression for a recording studio such as Power Station to evolve into an entertainment
complex, which includes the production of films. Power Station currently has financing in place for a $ 3.5 million
video mix studio to be built next to the recording studio. Distribution companies are constantly looking for new
sources of product to market. With Bongiovi's track record in the entertainment industry, any product that carries
the Bongiovi label should create a bidding situation with the distributors.
Advanced public relations work is currently being done to set the stage for negotiations with the distribution
companies. "Billboard11, "Variety", and "Box Office" have already agreed to do articles on Bongiovi and the movie.
On April 30, ABC will be airing a radio talk show with Bongiovi that will air on 2300 stations to a total listening
audience of over six million people. "Pame, Fortune, and Romance" have also agreed to give network TV
coverage.
The home video market has rapidly been changing the potential movie profits for the industry. A Nightmare On
Elm Street was made for well under two million dollars and has earned New Line Cinema more than $24 million at
the domestic box office. In addition, after a short video release, this production has sold over 3 million cassettes. In
the past videos were sold only to video rental stores for approximately $70 apiece. Recently the price has been
lowered to expand the market to the general public. The video rental stores won't disappear, but they may become
more like record stores that also rent their albums. All of this translates into more profit potential for producer and
investor.
It is an extremely rare opportunity to be able to get in on the ground floor in an offshoot of an already well
established entertainment company. Any investor willing to back this project will have first right of refusal on any
future projects. The percentages will remain the same for at least the first two projects.

INVESTING IN MOTION PICTURES


Independently produced motion pictures are a better investment today than ever before.
Reasons:
1) Increased Markets: There is much wider distribution of motion pictures today than ever before (i.e. Pay TV,
Cable TV, videocassettes, satellite transmissions, etc.
2) Presale1 contracts which bind the buyers (i.e. networks, pay TV, foreign distributors, etc.) to specific
payments at a future date, this insuring
return of capital and, in some cases, a profit before the film is
released.

Advanced Media Group

Page 44 of 121

09/14/2007

Investment Structure:
The producer and investor form a limited partnership for the purposes of producing one or more motion pictures.
The investor receives 100% of the net profits until recoupment, after which the split is 50-50. Profit participation of
others (actors, director, writer, etc.) comes out of the producer's end.
Packaging:
The roducer secures the services of a director, principal actors, and a writer.
Presale Deals:
The producer can negotiate presale (preproduction) arrangements with distributors, networks, pay TV,
merchandisers, etc. Whereas such arrangements can minimize the downside risk, they can also inhibit the
eventual profitability of the film.
Risk Factors:
It is very difficult to determine exactly how much of a risk one runs in financing a theatrical film. Adequate statistics
are impossible to find. Sharmat Services of Los Angeles a four-year-old study which revealed that 60% of all films
released make money. This study, however, did not include long range TV syndication (foreign and domestic)
revenues, and was made before Pay TV and video cassettes became significant additional markets, chemical
Bank
of
New
York
reports
that
they
have
never
lost
money
on
film
financing.
Another risk is the possibility that no distributor will want to release the picture. That is why some independent
producers include, a provision for distribution financing in their investment agreements. If worse comes to worst,
producers can distribute the film themselves. (Notable examples are "Billy Jack" and "Benji".)
There may be production catastrophes that will delay or cancel production once it is under way. Producers will
carry various forms of insurance (including completion bonds) to at least repay whatever funds have already been
spent.
Marketing:
If a distribution arrangement has not already been made, the producer now secures such an arrangement. If the
picture is good, it is possible to negotiate a much better deal than could have been done earlier. On the other
hand, the producer could have trouble securing the kind of distribution commitment wanted. The main factors here
are how much money the distributor is willing to commit to selling the picture, how much influence the producer
can have on the marketing campaign, and the distribution fee. Sometimes small distributors are able to give more
time and attention to independent pictures and offer better terms, but the producer may have to provide some
distribution expenses.
Out of gross domestic box office receipts, the exhibitor (retailer) usually subtracts his fixed costs and then receives
10%. Out of the remaining 90% gross film rentals received by the distributor (wholesaler), he usually recoups all or
part of his costs plus a distribution fee of 20-35%, then passes the rest on to the producer/investor. Terms of
distribution deals vary considerably.
Box office receipts, however, only account for a part of the producer/investor's revenues. As the enclosed figures
show, the ancillary markets are at least as significant as the domestic theatre box office. TV syndication, for
instance, can continue to bring in revenues for the next twenty years.
Demand for Product:
Today's supply comes nowhere near to matching real demand. At the present time, there are over 18,000 theatres
in the United States, it can readily be seen that roughly 400 films produced and rated last year did not begin to
meet; their needs. Theatres are compelled to show any type of film they can obtain to keep their doors open.
To date, independent producers are responsible for 72% of all films made world-wide. The domestic figure is 62%.
The independent producer has three primary options regarding distribution. These include the sale of the film
outright to a major national distributor, their merchandising of the film by the production company itself, or the use
of smaller regional sub-distributors who may promote the film in their respective geographical areas. Distribution of
films often relies on all' three methods to one degree or another.
Advanced Media Group

Page 45 of 121

09/14/2007

films often relies on all' three methods to one degree or another.

Another market, television, can consume nearly every film that has been, or is presently being produced. If each of
the three networks would show only one film per night, they would need over 1,000 films per year. In Los Angeles
area alone, there are nearly 10,000 films aired each year in a combination of local and network viewing time. Many
films are shown time and time again because there are no new films to replace them.
Today, virtually every film of quality has residual value in television, either by outright sale or by term licensing.
The latter is preferable since it allows the production company to retain ownership of the negative. The time lag
between theatre release and TV sale has diminished from seven years to an average of 18 months. However,
some major features such as "The Wiz" have been sold to TV before completing a full year in theatrical release.
The trend seems to be toward purchase of 'fresh1 films, and the outlets appear willing to pay the higher costs
involved.
Because of the great demand and the outrageously competitive attitude that pervades the networks, handsome
deals are being consummated before the production has been completed and then, by prearrangement ' with the
producers, hold the film until it has completed its theatrical run.

Dear Stan:
At your request Ive investigated the requirements of the Completion Bond. Bert Schneiderman of Worldwide
Completion Services in New York has given me a figure of 5*5%, excluding contingencies, with a 50% No Claims
Bonus, Since Bert also owns Bon Bon Payroll Service he has agreed to waive the payroll fee if we xise their

Bonus, Since Bert also owns Bon Bon Payroll Service he has agreed to waive the payroll fee if we xise their
bonding service.
Requirements: They need copies of the budget and/or production board revenues for the director and producers
as well as copies of their contracts and any other production agreements which have been completed.
Further they need to know when we will commence principal photography, editing location and if we intend to have
a distribution deal up front.I spoke to Jerry Vandersonde and Bill Hudson of DeWitt Stern Insurance in Los
Angeles, who were recommended by Worldwide. Since I couldn't show him a budget or a script we did some
educated guessing and came up with a figure of approximately $75,000. The Production Package policy should
include: General liability, cast insurance* negative film, faulty stock and camera processing, props, sets, wardrobe,
rented equipment, extra expenses, third party property damage, non-owned auto, Errors and Omissions including
a one year bond and a minimum workmen's comp policy for anything that is not covered by workmen's comp.
I understand you're going to Wildwood this weekend. We need to house a crew of about 60-80, production offices,
catering service, We'd like to get as many free extras as possible and need high quality promo type giveaways.
For screen credit, of course. If you have any such contact we'll need mutant dolls (500?) and if you can help bring
down location costs that would be great. I'm talking about beaches, amusements, the pier parking facilities.
Probably well handle that better next week when we can talk in person.

MISSION
1. To serve the people of the county, state and nation in the handling of their finances through the
support of our financial planners and other advisors, and their personal relationships with their
clients.
2. To meet the expectations of our various constituencies: planners, employees, stockholders, and
the
people
residing
in
the
area
we
serve.
OBJECTIVES
1. To position the company-as the major provider and servicer of financial products and advice in
the closely related fields of investments, financial consultation, mortgage banking, life insurance,
property
and
casualty
insurance,
taxes,
law,
and
real
estate.
2. To transform the fragmented market of independent financial planners into a quality group of
outstanding professionals marketing under one name, thus bringing order to the financial
marketplace.
3. To place client interest first at all times by delivering a diversified product through multiple
sponsors so as to always deliver high-quality and fairly priced products representing the top 25%
percentile of the marketplace.
4. To develop and maintain quality service on previously delivered products by managing assets at
a reasonable fee, thus freeing planners from the constant pressure of making new sales

5. To insure the growth of the business by hiring professional planners in sufficient number so as to

5. To insure the growth of the business by hiring professional planners in sufficient number so as to
become the pre-eminent financial services company in the area served.
6. To use invested capital rather than loans and long-term leases to minimize monthly expenses
and maximize profits, hereby assuring our business growth and development.
7. To encourage our planners to become stockholders in the firm, thus satisfying their desire fox
ownership in a company of real value. Also to assure a more stable development of our business
through stranger ties with our top planners.
8. To react to changes in the marketplace ahead of our competition in creative and thoroughly
considered ways.
9. To maintain a strong professional/client relationship through frequent personal contact while
using high-technology equipment to enhance the quality of our work

BUSINESS STRATEGIES
1. CURRENT SITUATION
Dozens of small independent planners servicing dissimilar markets through product Bales.
COMPANY STRATEGY
Recruit the small, independent financial planner into our group using a variety of motivating
factors;
1. Economics (reduce their expenses, expand their resource material and backup)
2. Marketplace recognition and dominance
3. Company identity
4. Equity ownership
5. Product diversity
6. Higher commissions on each sale
2. CURRENT SITUATION
Life insurance and brokerage businesses are suffering from poor performance of products, bad
press, and low-quality recruiting cutting commissions; while productive veterans in these industries
are uneasy with these changes

COMPANY STRATEGY
Recruit the most senior, productive brokers and agents who desire to do more personal planning by

Advanced Media Group

Page 59 of 121

09/14/2007

Recruit the most senior, productive brokers and agents who desire to do more personal planning by
providing the advantages' cited in paragraph 1 above.
3. CURRENT SITUATION
The 1986 Tax Act threatens to reduce the need for tax planning, and tax qualified plans. Rather
than seek shelters and other relief, investors will be likely to pay tax, and invest savings, thereby
increasing the need for asset management and the creation of wealth through equity investment.
COMPANY STRATEGY
Market products that are structured with lower up-front costs and stable ongoing management
renewals in order to build revenue from service over a period of time. This will gradually replace the
heavy
enjphasis
on
new
sales
and
give
rise
to
a
truly
responsive
4. CURRENT SITUATION
Mass marketing through corporate benefit plans and the media continues to grow as a segment of
the financial services business
COMPANY STRATEGY
Develop corporate sales through the concept of cafeteria plans which will change the employee
benefit market by allowing employees to target a percentage of benefit dollars to the areas of their
choice. Also, continue to emphasize seminars targeting unique organizations which have a strong
relationship with the public for specific financial products: EX. Charitable organization - charitable
giving seminars. estate planning seminars Counseling center - life planning seminars, etc.
Additionally, we will develop public awareness by constantly advertising the corporate name via
newspaper
and
radio.
5. CURRENT SITUATION
We currently have 14 financial planners and 5 other professionals committed to an August
occupancy in our new space on the Oregon Pike in Lancaster. Additionally, from among the 16
people involved, we have selected managers for our offices in Chambersburg, Lewisburg, Beading
and Lansdale. Based on last year's business by those already involved, we expect to generate 2.7
million
dollars
in
revenue,
and
invest
54
million
dollars
in
1987.
COMPANY STRATEGY
We plan to increase our Lancaster staff to 18 financial planners and 6 other profesionals. While we
plan to locate and develop in new areas, we will concentrate during our first year on our Lancaster
operations.
6. CURRENT SITUATION
At least 8 of our staff is comprised of professionals established in business for at least four years.
COMPANY STRATEGY
We will continue to seek predominately self-sufficient, professional "veterans" of the industry. Our
desire is to appeal to their need for the freedom to plan and communicate more effectively with
their clients. We'll also offer a higher payout, more varied products, and a more professional
environment. We will duplicate only the most critical brokerage house services.
7. CURRENT SITUATION

Page 60 of 121

09/14/2007

7. CURRENT SITUATION
Planners

have

been

stable

in

their

relationship

with

employers.

COMPANY STRATEGY
We expect a very stable core of top planners in Lancaster, Pa. , due to strong management, stable
planners, strong local support systems, and equity ownership. We will concentrate on local
development ahead of satellite development. We expect our satellite retention to be outstanding
where equity ownership is strong and mediocre where equity ownership is weak.
8. CURRENT SITUATION
Planners are independent and thus use various planning techniques, offer a limited product and
differ
in
their
areas
of
expertise.
COMPANY STRATEGY
The expertise and techniques of our planners and other professionals will be pooled to provide
clients
with
higher
quality
service
and
a
broader
line
of
products.
SERVICES
1. CURRENT SITUATION
Investment products are predominately delivered through captive sales organizations who
manufacture their own products and manage all monies. This leads to limited product offerings,
which frequently do not entirely satisfy specific consumer needs. It also leads to a mediocre product
because there is no free market pressure to insure top quality products that are competitively
priced.
COMPANY APPROACH
Planners will be free to deliver the highest quality products from among thousands of sponsors so
as to work exclusively for the benefit of the client. The planner may choose top industry
performers, solid and sizeable companies and a variety of "niche" products to fill every client need.
2. CURRENT SITUATION
Fee-paid financial plans vary widely in price and quality and depend most heavily on the individual
developing the plan or interpreting it. With regard to consumer expectations, the marketplace is in
disarray.
COMPANY APPROACH
Fee-based plans in advance of product sales should become simpler due to tax reform. The majority
of such plans were originally purchased for tax planning which may no longer be needed. Our
emphasis will be on a business being revived by tax reform Asset Management or Investment
Monitoring. With clients paying their taxes and investing for appreciation rather than seeking
shelters, this business is expected to boon. We plan to have an in-house portfolio manager and
market-timer. We plan to charge clients an average of .75% for the service. As planners gain assets
under management, their annual income from this source should alleviate pressure for new clients.
3. CURRENT SITUATION
Associated professionals such as attorneys, accountants, bankers, and insurance and real estate
agents seldom cooperate to help clients attain their goals. Ihe ultimate control of the client's future

Advanced Media Group

Page 61 of 121

09/14/2007

agents seldom cooperate to help clients attain their goals. Ihe ultimate control of the client's future
business tends to become divided, making people defensive and producing fear of e>q3osure in the
event of error. This often leads to professionals discrediting one another or taking undue credit for
advice leading clients to inaction.
COMPANY APPROACH
In-house legal and real estate professionals will enable a planner to get such services for his client
without fear of losing the client to outside interests. It will also help conserve revenue normally
spent for such services.
4. CURRENT SITUATION
Ongoing client service is a desire for most companies in cur marketplace. However, the constant
pressure is applied to planners to produce new clients and new sales as 90% of earnings is still
commission generated. The time required to prospect and dose new sales severely limits the
necessary servicing time.
COMPANY APPROACH
Ongoing client service will be supplied through a semiannual newsletter and semiannual client
investment update delivered alternately every three months. The costs of these services win be
borne by client-paid asset management fees, insurance renewals and mutual fund trailing
commissions. Although this is an ambitious, high-tech undertaking, our basic inclination remains
toward personal client review sessions held en a regular basis.
We also expect better crossover relationships and broadened information base for both planners
and specialists due to common location.

MARKET PENETRATION STRATEGY


1. Existing Clients - - Planners and other professional joining our group will have developed deep
personal client relationships, which should allow new investment dollars to be handled by our
people. As follow-up systems are implemented we expect 65% of all business to come from this
source.
2. Seminar Presence - - We plan to present four seminars on a joint basis with institutions such as
colleges, charities, business organizations and corporations. Our seminars include "Successful
Money Management"** ~ a soup-tonuts on investment products/ ''Half-time" a life planning
seminar, "Charitable Giving" and Retirement Planning Seminars. Currently our planners regularly
appear at Millersville State College, RCA, ALCOA, St. Joseph's Hospital and elsewhere. We also plan
regular seminars for the general public.
3. Business and Retirement Markets - - These two markets will be singled out for specific emphasis
because of the vast potential and strong need for planning among these groups. Business benefit
plans and specifically "cafeteria plans" will be marketed. Retirement markets will be expanded
primarily through increased seminar marketing.
PLANNER SUPPORT SERVICES
It is our plan to provide necessary office and clerical support services to help each planner or
affiliate conduct his or her business. We intend to limit our office to support services and not to
provide specific marketing services for individuals. Our marketing efforts vill be for the group at

Advanced Media Group

provide specific marketing services for individuals. Our marketing efforts vill be for the group at
large, that is to say that individual prospecting will be a personal expense borne by the planner or
advisor. Inherent in our support services will be the following:
1) Phone Handling - including the facility to forward other business lines to our central system
should a planner leave the office.
2) Repetitive Standard Correspondence - a sample of thank you, referral appointment setting, data
requests, and commonly used review letters may be selected and generated. Personal
correspondence will not be handled by our staff, free of charge.
3) Business Processing - completed applications will be checked, logged, copied and mailed by our
cashiers. Follow-up with broker/dealer or product sponsors will be offered to premier producers
only.
4) Computer Services - financial plans and investment monitoring services will be provided through
data base entry. Mass distribution and hard-copy plan generation will be done on a piece-by-piece
and percentage fee basis respectively.
5) Professional Networking - our in-house affiliates in law, accounting, tax, estate, real estate,
mortgage brokerage, portfolio management, life insurance and property/casualty insurance stand
ready to serve clients related financial needs.
6) Simply Stocking - prospectus, applications, trust agreements and other forms needed to conduct
business with our major' product suppliers will be maintained.
7) Reference and Periodicals - professional journals and data services meeting the cannon need of
our advisors will be purchased and will be maintained by our office staff. Material unique to
specialized areas will be provided by those planners who work in those areas.
8) Corporate Marketing - we will pro mote the name of our firm along with all planner affiliates to
gain public awareness in excess of what any individual alone could achieve. We will become the
best known firm in Central Pennsylvania.
9) Training and Education - Pooling our production will give us additional lout with sponsors,
industry trainers and those wishing to address our membership. Cost should be lower and quality
higher. It is our plan to provide a constant flows of information, new product profiles, and
specialized planning techniques.
10) Gross Payout Negotiation - Size and strength of our group should allow us to increase
concessions made by sponsors over amounts normally negotiable by individuals.

INITIAL CAPITALIZATION

conjunction with Federal and State Securities Regulations. An offering Memorandum will be issued

before

CONTINGENCY PLANS
The beginning phase of most businesses is characterized by erratic sales trends, fluctuating market
share, increasing dependence on improving technological systems, and possible cash flow losses.
We do not expect to face any of these problems because of the established nature of the planners
we are hiring. However, we would be foolish to believe that we somehow were immune from such

Advanced Media Group

Page 64 of 121

09/14/2007

we are hiring. However, we would be foolish to believe that we somehow were immune from such
potential problems and therefore need not to plan for these eventualities.
Our very first need would be to raise capital through stock purchases beyond our initial
capitalization requirements to the extent of at least $100,000 to cover any initial shortfall in
revenue or budget projections. This would protect us from going the way of most undercapitalized
businesses bankruptcy. Secondly, we expect to invest heavily in state-of-the-art technological
systems so that we do not face new hardware/software changes early in our business development.
Stan Caterbone will devote much of his management time to this area.
Priority will be given to reviewing performance against objectives on a monthly basis. All objectives
will be quantifiable and measurable, and as necessary adjustments will be made and monitored
accordingly. Such scrutiny of performance will allow us to constantly assess and respond to any
possible shortcomings and to market needs.
Our management is committed to deriving a large portion of its personal income from serving
clients as opposed to relying on management income. This should preserve our cash flow and
insure its growth.

In re: Financial Management Group, Ltd. Draft Offering Memorandum
Mr. Stanley J. Caterbone
255 Butler Avenue
Lancaster, PA 17601
Dear Stan:
I have now reviewed the draft Offering Memorandum for Financial Management Group, Ltd., which I
received several days ago, and my comments follow.
The cover page indicates that stock will be sold at two different prices, but it should include
reference to the fact that the lesser-priced shares will be offered to persons who will affiliate with
one or more of the subsidiaries. This can be done by a brief notation on the cover, together with a
cross-reference to the section in the Memorandum where is subject will be discussed more fully.
There should be a rather-full discussion somewhere in the document indicating the qualifications
and requirements pertaining to persons who desire to become affiliated, and as we discussed, this
also should be incorporated into a form of agreement or agreements, which should be attached as
an exhibit. In this connection, should people who affiliate and later terminate be required to sell
their stock back to the corporation?
On the cover you refer to the sale of *units*rather than shares of common stock, and the document
reflects the possibility of offering warrants. If you intend to offer units consisting of stock and
warrants, the cover page should clearly indicate, and the document should also be clear on that
point, and contain a description of the warrants The Memorandum should be much more descriptive
Advanced Media Group

Page 67 of 121

09/14/2007

point, and contain a description of the warrants The Memorandum should be much more descriptive
in outlining the proposed activities of each of the subsidiaries. In that connection, I suggest with
respect to each subsidiary the following information:
1. Reference to the fact that the subsidiary has not yet begun business, as well as the date by
which it is reasonably anticipated that some business activities will begin.
2. More detailed information on Just what each subsidiary will do.
3. Likewise, where applicable, ore specific information. as to licenses and regulatory requirements
(if
any)
which
must
be
met
and
continually
observed
by
the
subsidiary.
4. A discussion identifying the directors and officers and also who will manage its business
operations. If formal arrangements have been made with specific persons, so indicate; if the
business will be operated by an employee or independent contractor yet to be designated, give
details, including the terms of employment that are expected for any such person.
In this connection, I would think you would indicate the possible difficulty of retaining such persons
as one of the risk factors. Also, if such persons will continue to operate or be connected with the
businesses from which they come, you will have to point out the possibility of a conflict of interest
on their part. Further, it is my impression that these businesses are highly competitive. All in all,
you should discuss among yourselves what type of information about the proposed businesses a
sophisticated potential investor would want to know, and then state your response in writing.
Obviously, I would err in favor of more, rather than less, discussion.
With reference to the parent corporation, you should give detail similar to that you will give for the
subsidiaries. Further, you may want to discuss how the parent will "manage" the subsidiaries; that
is, whether each subsidiary will be largely autonomous or whether parent 'company officers a
personnel will be directly involved with the subsidiaries' activities.
With further reference to "risk factors*. I would think you would add a section stating that all of the
business activities are in fields that are highly competitive. Also, I would think you should state
that, while the founders have had considerable experience in certain of the activities, they have not
had such experience with respect to all of the other subsidiaries' proposed businesses; further, I
presume none has had experience in managing a group of companies and business activities such
as is contemplated in this case.
With respect to the use of proceeds, you should consider a further, breakdown of at least some of
the components "working capital" category for J-- which $187,000 is allocated, which is a relatively
large amount. Among other thoughts, you might refer to the lease obligation (and any other
present or contemplated contractual obligations), wages for secretaries and the like, and
professional expenses (e.g., legal and accounting).
As discussed, and in relation to the use of proceeds, you will have to deal with the matter of the
salaries to be paid to key management personnel. I note your disclosure that each will receive a
salary not exceeding $60,000, but that raises the possibility that virtually all of the working capital
could be used for that purpose. If I were a prospective investor, I would want additional
information, as I would be concerned about the potential use of a large part of the proceeds to pay
salaries. I would also ask to what extent revenues generated by the businesses would be able to
pay part or all of the salaries. Perhaps one approach, if agreeable, would be to disclose that not
more than half (for example) of the salaries paid during the two years would be from proceeds of
the offering.
Under the "Business discussion, you make reference to legal services as one of the fields of activity
for the corporation. You will want to check with legal counsel who would be involved, but I am
doubtful that under professional standards your corporation can offer legal services.
As I review the "Business* section, and as a potential investor, I would want to know more about

Advanced Media Group

Page 68 of 121

09/14/2007

As I review the "Business* section, and as a potential investor, I would want to know more about
how solid the arrangements are with "planner and affiliates", and also have some idea of the
timetable by which the corporation believes it can begin to engage in business.
With reference to "Management", you need to identify the Board of Directors. Also, you should
indicate whether management will provide full-time services, and If not, what approximate
percentage of their time is expected to be devoted to the organization's business.
The biographical summaries, in my view, should be toned down in order to be somewhat more
"matter of fact" in tone. In this section, as In the rest: of the document, you must be able to
support each fact that is stated, and some of the disclosures are a bit vague. An example is the
reference to j Bob Kauffman "handling over $12,000,000 of investment monies per year" and
having "an asset base of up to $60,000,000. Also, while you do indicate the functions each of the
three of you will have, I think it would be useful to be a bit more specific.
With respect to "Certain Transactions", you must be sure to disclose fully any arrangement or
situation pursuant to which any director or officer will have dealings directly or indirectly with the
corporation. For example, if any of you will continue to be retained by your present employer.

Dear Stan:
As we discussed, it will be necessary to file five copies of Form D not later than 15 days after the
first sale of securities in the proposed limited offering. This requirement is summarized in the first
paragraph of Form D, a partially completed copy, which is enclosed. We will discuss the actual
mechanics of filing, as veil as completion of the form, after you have reviewed the enclosed.
Please also note from that paragraph that it is necessary to make one or more additional filings as
the offering progresses. and is completed. This will be your responsibility, as only you will know
how long the offering will continue and when it is completed. It is most important to make these
filings in a complete and timely manner, as failure to do so will make the exemption under SEC
Regulation D unavailable, and therefore may result in a violation of the registration provisions of
the Securities Act of 1933 and, consequentially, potential liability for the directors and officers.
You will note that in several places I did not have sufficient information to complete the form, and I

You will note that in several places I did not have sufficient information to complete the form, and I
will rely on you to supply this information. I have marked where these items appear. In particular,
you will have to complete Page 5, which requires you to itemize the offering expenses/and then
allocate the use of proceeds. You will note that it is permitted to estimate these amounts* although
in the supplemental filings the estimates should be revised to reflect actual figures.
Please review this document closely, as it is my strong suggestion that the document should be
complete and ready for filing before 1 leave for vacation. You will then be in a position to file the
five copies directly with the SEC as soon as the first sale has occurred. Tour signature should go at

Mr. Stanley J. Caterbone
Financial Management Group, Ltd.
1755 Oregon Pike L
ancaster, PA 17601
Dear Stan:
The purpose of this letter is to address generally the requirements you must meet in connection
with the actual offer and sale of securities by the corporation pursuant to the exemption under
Section 203(d) of the Pennsylvania Securities Act of 1972 with respect to which a filing has been, or
is about to be, made with the Pennsylvania Securities Commission.
As an initial matter, as you are aware no sales may occur until the materials have been "cleared" by
the Pennsylvania Securities Commission. That will occur Initially via a telephone call from the
Commission staff to our office, at which point we will advise you. Thereafter, the staff will send a
letter of confirmation. Alternatively, as we have discussed, it may be necessary to deal with one or
more staff comments before clearance can be obtained.
At the point clearance has been obtained, you may distribute copies of the Offering Memorandum
subject to the numerical limitations of Section 203(d) and regulations there under. As we discussed,
the Memoranda should be numbered consecutively, and the number and name of the recipient of
each copy should be recorded in your records and written on the upper-right hand corner of the
Memorandum in the spaces provided.
Under Pennsylvania Securities Commission regulations, you are required to keep this type of
record; specifically, you must maintain a list shoving (i) the name and address of each offeree, (ii)
the name of the person making the offer, and (ill) the date the offer is made. As he previously
discussed, the numerical restrictions are that a maximum of 90 offers and 35 sales may he made to
Advanced Media Group

Page 70 of 121

09/14/2007

discussed, the numerical restrictions are that a maximum of 90 offers and 35 sales may he made to
Pennsylvania residents in any twelve month period.
The foregoing relates only to offers and sales made in Pennsylvania, and in the event you intend to
make any offers or sales elsewhere, it will be necessary for a review to be made of the applicable
state "blue sky" securities law. Certain of such state statutes permit a small number of offers
and/or sales to be made without requiring any filings, while other states require filings to be made
either before or after offers or sales are made. In all events, you should be very alert to this
matter, and determine state securities law requirements before approaching prospective investors
in other jurisdictions
As far as federal securities laws are concerned, as we have discussed it will be necessary to file
Form D with the Securities and Exchange Commission not later than 15 days after the initial sale is
made in the offering. We must rely on you to alert us when such initial sale has occurred; as of
course we have no independent means of knowing when that has occurred. Accordingly, please call
Mike Jarman or me as soon as the first sale actually occurs.
Section 203(d) of the Pennsylvania Securities Act prohibits "public media advertisement" and "mass
mailing" in connection with the solicitation of investors. Similarly, SEC Regulation D, which in effect
provides the exemption from federal registration upon which reliance is being made, prohibits "any
form of general solicitation or general advertising", including published or broadcast ads or notices
and seminars whose attendees have been invited by any general solicitation or advertising.
As the offering continues, the offering materials must be updated by supplement or amendment to
advise investors of material changes affecting any of the disclosures.
I hope this general outline will be of use, and of course if you have any questions or need any
further information, please let us know.

RE:Service Mark Search for "FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT GROUP"
Our File: 7351-G
Dear Stan:
As requested, I have completed a search in respect to the above-referenced service mark. The
results of that search are annexed hereto.
It is my understanding that the mark "FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT GROUP" is used for services of
Advanced Media Group

Page 71 of 121

09/14/2007

It is my understanding that the mark "FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT GROUP" is used for services of
providing a complete package of legal, accounting, real estate, insurance, stock brokerage, portfolio
management, market timing, financial planning, mortgage banking and investment banking to
business firms.
Based upon the results of the enclosed search, it is my opinion that you can adopt and use the
mark in this region of the United States.' It is a close question as to whether the mark is federally
registrable. Moreover, you may anticipate difficulty in using the mark in California, Arizona, Georgia
and Illinois. The possibility of opposition to your use of the mark also exists for the states of
Louisiana
and
Oregon.
The
reasons
for
my
opinion
are
explained
below.
If the only consideration were federal registration, then I would say that the mark is probably
registrable. The closest registered mark is "FINANCIAL MANAGERS SOCIETY". The marks differ only
by the last word, and "SOCIETY" and "GROUP" arguably have a similar connotation. But your
services are fairly distinguishable from those of the registered mark. Thus, on a federal level, the
major objection to an application to register may be an argument that your mark is descriptive of
the services being offered. Descriptive marks are not registrable unless by virtue of their long use
and heavy promotion they have become distinctive. However, there is at least a fair argument that
"FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT GROUP" is merely suggestive, not descriptive.
The more difficult problem arises in respect to the fact that there are others using "FINANCIAL
MANAGEMENT GROUP" or slight variants thereof. See for example California state registration No.
14070 for "THE FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT GROUP". See also the listing 'of four companies under
the name "FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT GROUP" in California, Louisiana and Oregon. Moreover, there
are "FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT GROUPs" listed in the telephone book for Atlanta, Georgia and
Chicago, Illinois. Whether or not these other users remain in business, and whether or not they
offer services competitive with yours, is nearly impossible to evaluate on the limited facts available
from the report. Thus, the risks exist that should you enter into one or more of these companies
geographical market areas, they may assert a claim of prior rights.
If, on the other hand, you will not as a practical matter be trading in these market areas for the
foreseeable future, then I recommend proceeding with an application to register the mark. If we are
successful in obtaining such registration, then your right to use the mark can ultimately become
incontestable if not for the prior users market areas, then for the rest of the United States.
Please feel free to call me if you have any questions concerning the foregoing.
With kindest personal regards, I am sincerely yours,
SEIDEL, GONDA, GOLDHAMMER & ABBOTT, P.C.

Re:

Financial Management Group, Ltd.,

Dear Ken:

Advanced Media Group

Page 73 of 121

09/14/2007

Dear Ken:
This letter is in reply to your inquiry of August 6, 1986 which inquiry enclosed a copy of the
"Charter Business Plan for The Financial Management Group, Ltd.* dated July 1, 1986. You have
requested advice concerning the ethical implications for a lawyer associating with The Financial
Management Group, Ltd.
Briefly, in review of the materials which you provided, The Financial Management Group, Ltd.
("FMG') seeks to position itself as a "major provider and servicer of financial products and advice in
the closely-related fields of investments, financial consultation, mortgage banking, life insurance,
property and casualty insurance, taxes, law, and real estate". It is the intention of FMG to retain inhouse legal and real estate professionals to assist financial planners -in rendering advice to clients,
in the words of the Plan, "without fear of losing the client to outside interests." Identified as part of
the "Support Services* which FMG intends to provide to clients, is so-called "professional
networking" described by FMG as the use of "in-house affiliates in law, accounting, tax", etc., to
serve clients and their related financial needs. The FMG proposals specifically identify so-called
"affiliate firms" which include a real estate entity and two law firms, one of whom is identified as
"Legal Counsel for Business & Real Estate" and the other firm is identified as 'Legal Counsel for
Estate Planning". A true and correct copy of the Charter Business Plan of PMG is attached hereto
and incorporated herein as Exhibit "A".
At the outset of our evaluation, certain points should be made clear. First, a lawyer is entitled to
engage in businesses other than the practice of law provided that the lawyer keeps such enterprises
entirely separate from the lawyer's independent practice of law. One of the problems which an
"affiliated" lawyer may face in associating with any such financial services provider is the
importance under the Code of Professional Responsibility of maintaining the lawyer's independent
professional judgment on behalf of a client where, for example, it may be argued that the lawyer
can be said to benefit because the tendering of advice may give rise to the purchase of financial
service products from FMG. Dnder those circumstances, the lawyer may be subject to charges of
conflicts of interest arising under DR 5-101 which provides, in pertinent part, that: "a lawyer shall
not accept employment if the exercise of his professional judgment on behalf of his client will be or
reasonably may be affected by his own financial, business, property, or personal interests."
Of equal concern is the ethical requirement prohibiting in-person solicitation of a prospective client
with whom the attorney does not enjoy a present or former attorney-client relationship. There
appears to be a likelihood that FMG will directly solicit, on an in-person basis, clients with whom
your law firm has no present or past attorney-client relationship which may subject you to the
charge that FMG has done for you indirectly what you are prohibited from doing directly. Certainly,
we cannot opine that there is no risk of violation based on the foregoing assumed facts.
Additionally, one must take care to avoid any ownership interest in FMG mindful of the prohibition
contained in DR 5-107 that a lawyer shall not engage in the practice of law for profit if a non-lawyer
owns any interest therein. Accordingly, compensation for legal services rendered should be made
on a fee for service basis or other objective format, avoiding any possible charge of joint ownership
of the venture.
It is also important that the confidentiality of information developed during the course of the client
representation fay your law firm be held secret and confidential in accordance with DR 4-101.
Accordingly, disclosure of the estate planning needs of clients should be done with the express
written consent of the client, particularly where a charge may later be made by a disgruntled client
that such information was misutilized in order to induce the client to purchase financial services
products sold by FMG (on which FMG may be entitled to commissions or fees). Moreover, to the
extent FMG earns such fees or commissions, full disclosure of FMG's interest in the sale of such
financial services products should be made by the attorney pursuant to the attorney's independent
obligation to provide the client with competent advice and a duty of loyal representation.
As you may sense, this brief reply to your inquiry identifies only some of the ethical problems which
may exist in connection with the proposed structure.

It is not intended, by this letter, however, to discourage such enterprises. To the contrary, it is
believed that, carefully structured, lawyers are free to participate in such ventures. Should you
require a more detailed opinion, we request that you provide us with specific questions about
proposed
courses
of
conduct
so
that
we
may
be
responsive
to
them.

Mission Statement
The Advanced Media Group Ltd., is an information technologies company which was founded to
facilitate the dissemination of information through the use of sate-of-the-art technologies.
Using these technologies we can improve the quality of great quantities of information by providing
a medium in which information is collected, organized, and delivered in a more effective and more
accurate manner. This will enable vast amount of information to be readily accessible and easily
absorbed. This great improvement in the quality and accessibility of information will contribute
toward a higher standard of living by allowing society to become more well-informed.
The Advanced Media Group Ltd., intends to devote much of its resources toward improving the
information resources available to the educational community. Interactive technologies and
applications developed by the Advanced Media Group Ltd., will help contribute toward the
improvement of the quality of our educational system.
Although the Advanced Media Group Ltd., intends to pursue its mission aggressively, it will conduct
its
business
with
the
utmost
honesty
and
integrity.
CD-ROM Manufacturing
Background:
The Advanced Media Group, Ltd., was responsible for developing the CD-ROM division of American
Helix Technology Corporation. The Advanced Media Group, Ltd., currently owns and operates the
division and lias developed a highly 'regarded reputation for quality in the production of CD-ROM
discs.
American Helix Technology Corporation provides high quality CD-Audio and CD-ROM replication
services in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. The facility, which was completed in 1988,
features a unique third-generation monoline processing module which was designed and
engineered by David D. Dering, American Helix's founder and president. The facility was designed
and engineered with the objective of increasing manufacturing yields by incorporating quality
control techniques and a high degree of automation into the production process.
The Manufacturing Process:
The manufacturing facility features a 10,000-class cleanroom for CD preparation and replication
operations. Most importantly, American Helix features an aggressive approach to quality assurance.
Before manufacturing, the master stamper is passed through three different quality control tests
before it is installed into the injection molding machine. During these tests, the stamper is visually
inspected for surface flaws, and analyzed for strict adherence to the physical media and data
format specifications defined in the Phillips/SONY Red Book and Yellow Book standards.
Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, American Helix designed its own mono-line replication
module. Computer automated robotics provides above average production yields through increased
efficiency. Most importantly, the robotics technology minimizes the amount of human contact
during production, which increases quality assurance statistics.
4 & 5 Color Disc Printing (Picture Discs):
American Helix is one of a few CD manufacturing facilities capable of printing the required 4 & 5
Color process for popular "picture" discs. Full color reporductions make the Compact Disc another
means of marketing and advertising for Audio and CD-ROM publishers. American Helix has recieved
awards
for
its
screen
printing
technologies.
Quality
Assurance:
American Helix and the Advanced Media Group, Ltd., have developed extensive quality assurance
procedures and policies to ensure that the CD-ROM manufacturing process delivers quality
assurance specifications of the highest caliber.

Advanced Media Group

The CD-ROM stamper is analyzed by a computerized system that inspects and evaluates the
physical characteristics and the integrity of the data. Specifications must exceed the
SONY/PHILLIPS
Red
and
Yellow
Book
Standards.
During the replication process, randomly selected discs are taken from the beginning, the middle
and the end of the process and analyzed on the CD-CATS system. This system is used to inspect
and
evaluate
the
physical
characteristics
of
the
actual
CD-ROM
discs.
After replication, all of the discs are analyzed by our "AID" analyzer for more than ten different
physical flaws. Driven by computerized robotics, only those discs that pass the prescribed quality
assurance
specifications
are
prepared
for
printing.
Finally, all of the discs are visually inspected for printing flaws before being packaged and prepared
for shipment.
Application Development
The Advanced Media Group, Ltd., supports ongoing research and development in the production of
multimedia information applications for a variety of optical platforms. These include CD-ROM,
Compact Disc Interactive (GDI), Intel's Digital Video Interactive (DVI), Interactive Video Disc
(IVD), Laserdisc, and Commodore's Compact Disc Television (CDTV), Write-Once Read-Many

Educational
Applications
The Advanced Media Group, Ltd., has always cited the educational market as its primary area of
interest. However, the market's evolution is challenged by the faltering educational infrastructure
and a lack of financial resources. Fortunately, there is a consortium of large corporations that feel a
real sense of social responsibility and contribute generously toward improving our educational
system. The development of interactive multimedia technologies for education has become a strong
focal point among companies such as IBM, Xerox, and Lucasfilm as well as others.
The Advanced Media Group, Ltd., brings to the interactive educational multimedia market human
resources with extensive experience in engineering, instructional design, graphics technologies,
and courseware development. These capabilities are coupled with a strong and successful
foundation in the optical publishing industry including the development of multiplatform authoring
systems, a graphics librarian, CD-ROM search engines, and all phases of CD-ROM production.

systems, a graphics librarian, CD-ROM search engines, and all phases of CD-ROM production.
The Advanced Media Group is currently producing its first CDTV application, The Stars and You.
The educational application is being produced for children and will take the users through a tour of
the universe utilizing full color photographs, audio, and animation techniques. The application will
allow the user to learn information about the various planets and stars that form our universe, in
an interactive "game" type tutorial.
Educational courses designed include: "Composite Materials Manufacturing", "Accounting
Principles", "Teacher Induction Training" and "Interactive Math 1 & 2" (K-12, 13 & 14) operating on
CD-ROM
&
IVD
concurrently.
Commodore CDTV Strategic Alliance
The Advanced Media Group, Ltd., has recently signed a licensing agreement with Commodore
International, Ltd., the West Chester, PA. computer manufacturer. This strategic alliance is aimed
at combining the digital technologies expertise of the Advanced Media Group,Ltd., with the
development of the Commodore CDTV multimedia machine. The CDTV system was officially
introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show, in Las Vegas this past January. The first shipments
were recently recieved by major retailers on the West coast, in April.
CDTV is one of the boldest attempts to date of a computer manufacturer creating a new consumer
electronics medium. CDTV faces stiff competition from similar products produced by computer
manufacturing giants Apple Computer, Inc., International Business Machines (IBM), and Tandy
Electronics. The CDTV systems will support "game", reference, and educational applications created
by
film
giants
Lucasfilm
and
Disney.
Mr. Nolan Bushnell, who sold Atari in 1976, is faced with the challenge of effectively integrating the
best aspects of television and computing technologies. The foundation of this emerging
amalgamated technology is built upon the proven, stable CD-ROM and CD-Audio technologies. The
vast storage capacity of CD-ROM coupled with the power of interactive multimedia applications will
allow these systems to have previously unheard of capabilities. Interactive multimedia applications
are available in several categories including: education; entertainment; reference; arts; and music.
However, the most unique feature of CDTV is its compactness. The complete CDTV system is no
larger than a conventional CD-Audio player. It can be connected to virtually an TV monitor and is
completely self-contained. Unlike CD-ROM, it does not require a connection to a personal
computer. The system employs a simple yet elegant infrared remote control interface and it can be
integrated into an entertainment system which can play both CDTV and CD-Audio discs. This will
make it the first system to bridge the personal computer and consumer electronics markets.
Surprisingly, the CDTV system is to be reasonably priced at under $1,000.
The Advanced Media Group, Ltd., manufactured the first CD-ROM disc for Commodore International
Ltd., more than a year ago and the Advanced Media Group, Ltd., has continued supporting
Commodore during the early development of the CDTV system.
This licensing agreement will establish the Advanced Media Group, Ltd., as one of the CDTV
premastering sites. Because the CDTV operating system is proprietary, all applications developed
for the systems will require that the applications be processed utilizing the Commodore ISO 9660
formatting software. In addition to premastering services, the Advanced Media Group, Ltd., will
also provide end-to-end manufacturing of CDTV discs, and will develop a library of CDTV
applications
for
the
Educational
and
Scientific
Community.
CD-Diagnostics Software
CD-DIAGNOSTICS is a unique software utility package developed by the Advanced Media Group,
Ltd., to aid in the installation and maintenance of CD-ROM drives. The package is used extensively
by libraries and organizations which need to administer and maintain multiple CD-ROM drives. The
Advanced Media Group, Ltd., has marketed the software worldwide and it is currently in use in S.
Africa, England, Italy, Spain; Brazil, Canada, Australia, Austria, and Saudi Arabia, as well as the

ADVANCED MEDIA GROUP/HIGH INDUSTRIES RECAPITALIZATION PLAN
Advanced Media Group

Page 80 of 121

09/14/2007

ADVANCED MEDIA GROUP/HIGH INDUSTRIES RECAPITALIZATION PLAN


(Advanced Media Group Authored & Consulted On This Plan)
To build a profitable company geared toward the design and implementation of products and
services
for
the
high-end
delivery
of
information.
The following objectives must also be achieved: Attract outside equity dollars for the capitalization
of the company. Return to American Helix, approximately 300K of the 600K used to initially fund
the Advanced Media Group. American Helix maintains an equity interest in the new company.
Eliminate future financial liability to American Helix. Resolve the LASERTEX issue.
OVERVIEW: It has become more and more apparent, that the need for a Full Service Multimedia
Publishing Company is needed now more than ever, and that this need will continue to grow as
delivery systems become more widely distributed. (More concrete evidence of this will be included
in the business plan.) The major reason this need exists is the extreme high cost in technical
personnel and equipment to carry such a group within an organization. The only alternative has
been
to
network
with
other
companies.
Networking can create other problems, especially for a company that possesses very few of the
necessary skills in house. Problems like losing control of the client, higher costs due to the
combined profit margins of the different companies, and the potential lose of those capabilities. An
alternative to this, is to establish a Consortium of talent to draw from for the completion of
projects, where the Consortium has an on going interest in the evolution of the company. Many
relationships have already been established that can be strengthened through a more formalized
arrangement. Other relationships need to be established that will give the group additional
capabilities
in
target
areas.
MARKETING: We need to capitalize on American Helix existing image of a creative forward
thinking company by focusing on project development work that requires a higher level of creative
design and implementation. At the same time grow that image through the efforts of the
consortium to establish an aura of unparalleled excellence in the industry. One of my largest
hurdles to overcome has been the reluctance of potential clients to do business with a young
company, that has no track record in completing CDROM projects. This hurdle is only starting to
be minimized by the relationships with companies and individuals that are producing demos geared
specifically towards our clients needs or particular project, for no cash up front. By drawing these
companies in closer to us in a more structured relationship we will be able to use their past
successes to eliminate the fear a potential client has in doing business with us. We need to put
together a portfolio of products that were produced by the group. This portfolio should consist of a
number of different delivery mediums, ie. CD-ROM, Video, Laser video Disc, Print, Exhibits, DVI,
etc. Part of that portfolio should consist of a high impact capabilities presentation on video by the
existing consortium of talent to introduce the concept. We need not limit ourselves solely to the
CDROM markets. The demo, by focusing not only on the technology and the achievements of the
existing members of the consortium, will open up brand new markets at a fraction of what it would
cost to bring all of the necessary expertise in house.
Projects that utilize Laser video Disc Technology, DVI, Television, Radio, Videos, Exhibits, as well as
Print advertising. As CDROM moves more into the multimedia arena, all of these areas of
expertise will be necessary. By building a consortium of talent to draw from for CDROM, we are
also able to produce product for people in any one of these specific areas. We already have the
portfolio started with the Yellowman Video and some CDROM application demos as well as some
of the CDROM discs that we produced. As we bring people into the group, the portfolio will grow
rapidly by including the groups past successes. A portfolio of this magnitude should be unparalleled
in any industry and should eliminate any fears a potential client may have in dealing with a young
company. Armed with a portfolio like this, sales people would be easy to attract that would work
for a straight commission or draw against commission. Sales people could be recruited from each
of the target markets to capitalize on their knowledge of each of their respective industries. They
would now be entering a company to make a sale with more capabilities than they could have ever

Advanced Media Group

Page 81 of 121

09/14/2007

would now be entering a company to make a sale with more capabilities than they could have ever
imagined and at the same time broaden their potential customer base. By having the sales people
work on commission, the cost of sales will be much easier to control and would reduce the financial
exposure to the company.
Some

specific

target

markets

interested

in

the

high

end

delivery

of

information

are:

Large and small corporations for interactive training programs as well as manipulating large
amounts of data
Museums for exhibits Advertising agencies to produce product for their clients
Government agencies for contracts to manipulate large amounts of data as well as interactive
training programs

Retrieval
Software
companies
that
do
not
have
multimedia
capabilities
Companies that exhibit at trade shows need Exhibits.
Interactive Exhibits are more dynamic, especially in industries not associated with CDROM or
multimedia. Publishers of Educational Materials are looking to publish products in a more
interactive way. Studies are being done that show children learn faster and retain more when they
interact with the delivery medium. This list does not focus on any one particular industry. The
delivery of information reaches across almost every industry. Just about anything that involves a
transfer of information can be enhanced and become more effective by using a multiple of
mediums, and by having the target audience participate in the process. This one sentence is the
primary reason for the incredible excitement surrounding this industry. The cost effectiveness of
CDROM is secondary. The cost effectiveness of CDROM is responsible for most of the growth
rate, but the blending of mediums is what is responsible for the excitement. This is important to
understand because it is not necessary to limit your markets. The process to produce an interactive
training program is virtually identical to produce an interactive exhibit, educational program or an
advertising kiosk. They all involve the transfer of information. The clients are out there. They are
around every corner and under every stone you turn over. The only way to close a sale in this
business
is
to
demonstrate
your
capabilities.
The key word there is demonstrated. We are working in an area that is very new and very
expensive. When you are trying to close a sale for a printing job, everyone assumes you know how
to print. The criteria for getting the job are different for multimedia, interactive programs. When a
company is considering spending possibly hundreds of thousands of dollars on a production, they
need to feel comfortable with the producers expertise. These fears are much easier to deal with by
demonstrating
the
skills
of
the
Consortium.
We also need to gain exposure by presenting the technology, (NOT THE CONCEPT) at industry
and/or non-industry functions, utilizing the technology in presentations that are consistent with the
goals of the group. Typically technology presentations are either boring or they are dealing with a
technology that cannot be utilized at this time. We need to focus on the technology that can be
utilized, but demonstrate the additional creativity brought by the group that does not come simply
by
purchasing
technology.
ORGANIZATION: THE COMPANY Chief Financial Officer would be Jim Tritch. Jim's responsibilities
would be to establish the financial reporting procedures that the company would operate under as
well certain operational procedures. With Jim's background and expertise, the investor will feel
comfortable that the financial aspects of the company are under prudent management.
President: The president of the company would be Scott Robertson. Scott's responsibilities would
be to follow the reporting and operational procedures outlined by Jim as well as to establish the
consortium and the relationships of the participating members. All arrangements with the members
would be subject to the approval of Jim Tritch. In addition to myself, I would need one other
salaried person (25K30K) that would be responsible for the daily accounting functions of the
company. All sales people would be straight commission. As the company grows there may be a
need for a sales manager but it would be my preference that this person would work on a

Advanced Media Group

Page 82 of 121

09/14/2007

need for a sales manager but it would be my preference that this person would work on a
commission override structure. (A more detailed definition of responsibilities would be included in
the business plan.)
BOARD OF DIRECTORS: The Board of Directors would have five seats, to be comprised of Jim
Tritch as chairman, Scott Robertson, two seats for the investor and one seat to represent the
consortium, which would be established through a vote by the members of the consortium.
THE CONSORTIUM: Below are a few of the companies and/or individuals, along with their
respective areas of expertise that could be brought to the group. Although most of these
people_ _A __are working with us in one capacity or another, before a more formalized
arrangement could be made, a much more extensive background check would be necessary.
Esscomp: Skip Langley & Wayne Landis Esscomp is a company that writes software and has a full
text search engine with retrieval time and size capabilities that are far above industry standards.
Esscomp's capabilities are geared towards the indexing and retrieval of large amounts of data
which
is
important
to
large
corporations
and
government
organizations.
Dering Musser de Nooijer: Dering Musser de Nooijer is a design company recently formed by Jeff
Dering, Jerry Musser, and de Nooijer that can show capabilities in creative design and interactive
exhibits. The people involved in this organization are largely responsible for the image that
American Helix currently has in the market as a progressive, forward thinking company. This image
is probably one of the more valuable assets the Advanced Media Group possess at this time. Jeff
Dering has just recently left National Geographic where he was responsible for the creation and
construction of Explorers Hall, an interactive exhibit in Washington, DC. Through his activities at
National Geographic, Jeff has been exposed to and worked with a number of different individuals
and companies that could be very valuable additions to the Advanced Media Group. This company
is also responsible for the creation of the Yellowman Video which was produced for us as well as
the printed brochures and literature we distribute. Many of the materials produced for us, by this
organization,
have
won
national
and
international
awards.
Sandra Morris: Sandra Morris, currently with Intel, has indicated she will be leaving Intel in the
near future. Sandra has been approached by a number of companies to produce DVI products for
them. She has a background in education and more recently has been the focal point for much of
Intels effort in recruiting DVI developers for what Intel and many other people believe will become
the standard in full motion video for computers. Sandra has maintained a very high profile in the
industry. She regularly speaks at many of the industry shows, and has a very good reputation.
An executive committee needs to be established which would be made up of members of the
respective groups as well as from the company. This committee would be responsible for reviewing
and advising on potential jobs, establishing a project manager for each job, reviewing the progress
on each job as well as monitoring costs for work performed by the members to protect against
overcharging for work performed.
This committee would also have a hand in the direction of marketing and advertising dollars
budgeted for the group.
until a full business plan is written and a pro forma produced, I can't say exactly what the start
up expense would be. I would estimate that $1,500,000 would need to be raised. This should
accomplish the goal of returning $300,000 to American Helix and still leave adequate operating
capital. The structure of the company would be very lean and mean. Most of the expenses would
be controllable through a commission structure. The goal on projects would be to achieve between
a 5% to 20% margin depending on the size of the project. The consortium should have an equity
interest (to be determined) in the company. Their equity could be established a number of different
ways. The simplest, would be for them to purchase stock. This is also harder to achieve. Another
alternative would be to have a percentage of their earnings go towards the purchase of stock. This
is a more viable alternative that should be explored in more detail. Another alternative could be

is a more viable alternative that should be explored in more detail. Another alternative could be
that the groups stock would vest over a period of time. Each of these alternatives carry with them
advantages and disadvantages for both the members of the group and the company. Probably the
best
alternative
will
be
a
hybrid
of
the
three
options
just
mentioned.
Regardless of how we decide to achieve equity ownership for the members, it is very important
that this be a part of the plan. Obviously we would want the members to place the needs of the
group over the needs of the individual. This, for the most part goes against human nature. Having
an equity interest in the company will help promote the concept of "the needs of the many out
weighing the needs of the one". There are a number of other factors that can help to promote this
concept. One of those would be to target companies or individuals for the group that do not have a
long history of working for themselves and are interested in the sense of security that working with
a group provides. We are fortunate that the existing target members meet that criteria. A possible
breakdown
of
equity
could
be
as
follows:
Raise 1.5 million paying 300K back to American Helix Investor (1.5 Million 70% AH 300K 20%
Consortium 10%. It would probably be a good idea to structure some type of option for the
Consortium
to
increase
equity
ownership.
LASERTEX ISSUE: We have a relationship with Network Technology. It is not a good
relationship, but never the less it exists. We need to figure out how to get the most out of it. There
are two possible primary paths this relationship could go. Either Tom will work with us to complete
LASERTEX or we will figure out the most beneficial way to terminate the relationship. Either way it
is imperative that we deal with Tom from a position of strength and that we exercise much more
control over the future path of the relationship. We are able to do this now that we have officially
put Tom on notice and are exercising our rights under the contract. We have sufficient
documentation to substantiate our allegations and proof that we held up our end of the contract.
Even though I personally feel betrayed by the confidence and trust I placed in Tom, I doubt that he
manipulated this situation simply to scam over $275,000 from us. I believe this is more situation
where Tom got in over his head and his ego is making some very bad decisions for him with very
little regard how it affects other people other businesses or even the long term effect on his own
business. We also can not assume that this entire arrangement was not a scam. As we try to fix
the situation, all possibilities must be considered and carefully weighted. I think a trip to
Washington to meet with Tom, so a better assessment of the situation can be made, would be the
most prudent action at this time. Without good lines of communication, the problem can not be
resolved, and could only get worse.
TIME LINE Upon the approval to go ahead, it would take one week to complete a full written
business plan. To attract the equity investment for the company it would be advantageous to have
a few or all of the members commitment to the group. This would enable us to demonstrate the
full capabilities to the potential investor. I would estimate that this could be completed in another
two weeks (possibly less). The time needed to complete the funding of the company is a little more
difficult to estimate. Utilizing the presentation skills that we would possess as well as the past
performance of the members, coupled with the existing excitement surrounding the industry, I
believe I could have this company funded in record time.

Premastering,

Summary: In order to receive the considerations necessary to win any of the many government
projects utilizing CD-ROM, it is necessary to prepare a very detailed, methodical, and concise bid
proposal. These proposals are intended to define all processes, procedures, and most importantly
quality assurance controls. A "Statement of Work" from the NASA Solicitation RFP5-76373/206 is
attached for your reference.

attached for your reference.


There are 5 (five) primary processes that must be described in a technical proposal that will
demonstrate an overall understanding of the requirements necessary to deliver a CD-ROM.
According to the "technical approach", and in accordance with all technical specifications cited, the
following processes must be defined:

Premastering/DMI-Stan Caterbone
Mastering/DMI-Stan Caterbone
Replication/David Dering
Quality Assurance/Dave Shirk-Beth Eller-David Dering
File Validation/DMI-Stan Caterbone

Plan of Action: The importance of the lack of this information has already cost us the opportunity
to bid on a $60,000 plus contract with NASA. There are other government bids that I am preparing
that must be delivered next week. We only have to prepare this information one time, and then
only the pricing/cost proposals will need to be added for future government contracts. This
information will also help me to market CD-ROM Replication services in the commercial market as
well.
In order to complete this task as efficiently as possible, and with information that will insure our
success in government bids, I have prepared an "INFORMATION QUESTIONNAIRE" for each
individual
according
to
the
primary
process.
Due Date: Each person is asked to complete the required questionnaire and deliver it by Friday,
June
22,
1990.
I will be available for consultation, and will review the information on Thursday. I thank you for

Upon the premastering and mastering, American Helix will validate the formatted CD-ROM image
file containing the ISO 9660 format against the original files. The SP-2 is a comprehensive
computer test system that monitors Sony/Phillips red book data parameters such as BLER, BRST,
UNCR errors on a per second basis as well as 10 sec., total error count and average error count of
the entire stamper surface. I3 and I11 voltage measurements are taken (per sec.) as well as drop
out detection, Symmetry, Peak to Peak, Radial Noise, and Crosstalk (on track). All measurements
are monitored to be well within spec of Sony/Phillips Red Book. A printout of this test is made and
stored in the customer file as well as on the SP-2 hard drive for future reference.
Upon verification, American Helix will begin production of the CD-ROM discs. 100% of all CD-ROM
discs will be automatically inspected on the AID Computerized Analyzer for data integrity, physical
characteristics,
and
performance.
The AID System will inspect the CD for any physical defects or errors that may have occurred in
the molding process. The system also checks for Birefringence, The inner and outer Eccentricity,
Reflectivity level, and Warp level of the substrate. The 4 main reject areas on this system are

Dear Ken:
As per our previous meeting, the following is a cost estimate of the CD-ROM prototype that we
have proposed.
Storyboard Presentation Program ... $1,000
Prototype CD-ROM Disc including the following:
CD-ROM design, configuration, production, and simulation; CD-ROM premastering, CD-ROM
mastering, and replication (50 Discs); 2 color printing, jewel boxes, and shrink wrapped;
requirements include receiving camera ready label art for printing;
Cost estimate assumes 10 megabytes of electronic data delivered to American Helix ... $7,500
"IMPLEMENTING CD-ROM TECHNOLOGY" Course book..$ 450
Please note that the suggested functions and capabilities are just that --- suggestions, we would of
course
design
the
final
prototype
according
to
your
specifications.
The following is a brief description of the functions and capabilities that are illustrated in the
storyboard demo program:
1. "ELECTRONIC DIRECTORY" or EXECUTIVE INFORMATION SYSTEM - This system is intended to
deliver a value added application of utilizing the original telephone directory data for other
functional applications. This is intended to support the many businesses and organizations that
have installed computer networks, however it also has the same functions for single user systems.

have installed computer networks, however it also has the same functions for single user systems.
1.1 "DIRECTORY" - The directory is the conventional look up function. Searches could include by
name; number; and or address. This will include an intelligent browse function. This will allow the

PRESS RELEASE
COMMODORE CDTV
STRATEGIC ALLIANCE
The Advanced Media Group, Ltd., has recently signed a licensing agreement with Commodore
International, Ltd., the West Chester computer maker. The strategic alliance is aimed at combining
the digital technologies expertise of the Advanced Media Group, Ltd., with the development of the
Commodore CDTV multimedia machine. The new system was officially introduced at the Consumer
Electronics Show, in Las Vegas this past January. The first shipments are expected to follow
immediately after the MICROSOFT CD-ROM Show, which will be held in San Jose, CA in a few
weeks. The show is the largest CD-ROM trade show for this new and emerging technology.
The CDTV is one of the boldest attempts of a computer maker to create a new category in the
elusive field of consumer electronics. The field of competition is intense, including, Apple Computer,
Inc., International Business Machines (IBM), and Tandy Electronics. The systems will support
"game", reference, and also educational applications from the arms of film giants Lucasfilm and
Disney.
Mr. Bushnell, who sold Atari in 1976, is challenged with a mission to effectively integrate the best
aspects of television with computing. The foundation of the technology is built around CD-Audio
and CD-ROM subsystems. The vast amounts of storage capacity inherent in CD-ROM technology
coupled with the "interactivity" of multimedia presentations give the systems unlimited potential.
However, what makes the CDTV unique is that the complete system is only the size of a
conventional CD player. Any TV monitor can be used without the need for a computer. The system
is operated with an infrared remote control. The system can also be adapted to an entertainment
Advanced Media Group

is operated with an infrared remote control. The system can also be adapted to an entertainment
system and can play both CD-Audio or CD-CDTV discs. This will make it the first system to link the
bridge between the conventional computer markets and the consumer markets driven by CD-ROM
technology. The retail price is expected to be under $1,000.
Stan Caterbone had manufactured the first CD-ROM disc for Commodore International Ltd., more
than a year ago. The Advanced Media Group, Ltd., had been working with Commodore during the
early development for the system over the past year.
The licensing agreement will establish the Advanced Media Group, Ltd., as one of two domestic
premastering sites for the country. Because of the proprietary operating system, all applications
developed for the systems will require that the applications be processed at one of the two sites.
There is currently one site in the United Kingdom for the international markets. The Advanced
Media Group, Ltd., will also provide end to end manufacturing for the CDTV discs.
The Advanced Media Group, Ltd., will also develop its own portfolio of educational applications for
the new systems. Several products are currently in the exploratory phase. Negotiations are
currently being held with DONNELLY GEOSYSTEMS, a division of R.R. Donnelly, of Chicago Illinois.
This strategic alliance will allow the Advanced Media Group, Ltd., to provide CD-ROM technologies
and capabilities to the incredible portfolio of information assets that R.R. Donnelly prints, publishes,
and
administers.
R.R. Donnelly is currently the largest printer in the world, and currently manages a wealth of
information. The migration from publishing information on paper to that of optical discs will be the
primary
mission
of
the
strategic
alliance.
Donnelly Geosystems has developed an extensive portfolio of digitized raster and vector mapping
systems that cover all parts of the world. The Advanced Media Group, Ltd., is currently designing
educational applications for K through 12 grades that will produce multimedia interactive
geography
lessons.
Since its inception, the Advanced Media Group, Ltd., has cited the educational market as its
primary area of interest. However, the markets' evolution is challenged by the faltering educational
infrastructure and the lack of financial resources. Fortunately, there is a consortium of larger
corporations that feel a real sense of social responsibility to contribute to improving the educational
system at large. Interactive multimedia technologies is expected to play an important part. Some
of the corporations chartering this movement includes IBM, Xerox, and Lucasfilm, to name a few.
The Advanced Media Group, Ltd., capabilities and human resources include extensive experience in
Engineering, Instructional Design, Graphics Technologies, and Courseware Development for the
interactive educational multimedia markets. These capabilities are coupled with a strong and
successful foundation in the optical publishing industry. CD-ROM, IVD, Videodisc, CDTV, DVI and
Worm technologies are all included in it's capabilities. Multiplatform authoring systems, Graphics
Librarian, and CD-ROM Search Engines have been developed by the engineers of the Advanced
Media
Group,Ltd.,
Educational courses that have been designed include: Composite Materials Manufacturing;
Accounting Principles; Teacher Induction Training; and Interactive Math 1 & 2 (K-12, 13 & 14)
operating on CD-ROM & IVD concurrently.

Dear Allon:
As per your request, you will find some enclosed statistics that will be more than adequate for your
purposes. This is one of the more descriptive statistical analysis of the CD-ROM industry that I have
reviewed. I hope you find it equally impressive.
On another matter, I have been selected as a delegate for the State Committees for Publishing,
composed of various publishers from throughout the United States. This delegation will visit the
Soviet Union and Eastern Europe this summer. The objective of this visit is "to stimulate the
exchange of expertise and knowledge of the methods and capabilities between American, Soviet,
and Eastern Europe publishers, so as to: enhance the export of products between nations; identify
and expedite the translation of appropriate works in each county; and provide both sides
with an insight into the editorial, design, and manufacturing resources available within each
county".
The delegation members will spend two weeks visiting major publishing houses, bookstores,
printer, research institutes, universities, and libraries in several cities. Delegates will meet with the
Ministries of Culture, discuss topics of mutual interest with our counterparts, and receive updates
from Soviet and European technology specialists, printers, authors, and editors.
"The project will enable the delegates to establish the basis for joint ventures and long-term
professional dialoque with publishers, manufacturers, and members of the academic community, as
well as individuals from the Soviet and Eastern European governments".
I will be soliciting sponsorships from corporations that have a vested interest in developing
business opportunities with the respective nations. This might present opportunities not only in
regards to CD-ROM publishing, but more importantly with respect to manufacturing facilities, of
which would be in the interests of High Industries and American Helix. In return for funding the

which would be in the interests of High Industries and American Helix. In return for funding the
estimated expenses of $4,500, I will pursue communications and dialogue that are of the interests
of the corporate sponsor, and will return will as much information as possible for the respective
sponsor, including contacts.
Because of the logistics and planning required to implement this delegation, I am required to
submit my commitment as soon as possible. I will also approach R.R. Donnelly as a corporate
sponsor, who incidentally is a "Sustaining Member" of the State Committees for Publishing.

INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW


Business Summary: Radio Science Laboratories, Inc. proposes to enter the Design
and Manufacturing sector to the RF/Microwave and Telecommunications Industry.
Utilizing the talents of Design Engineer and President, James A. Cross, Radio Science
Laboratories, Inc. (RSL,Inc.) will initially introduce a line of Ultra Low Noise
Amplifiers. These amplifiers will be marketed to the RF and Microwave Industry for a
variety of applications including the following:

Many Other Transmit/Receive Environments

Business Summary
RSL, Inc. will provide superior products through it's advanced Research and Design
process. However, constant monitoring on budgets and cash flows will serve as a
check and balance against an unprofitable Research and Development program.The
first model, a Wide Band Ultra Low Noise Amplifier, with a frequency range of 2MGz
to 20GHz, will out perform the existing market in its ability to reduce the noise level
as much as 50%. This will in essence give the receiving device a much higher signal,
thus reducing the amount of transmit power required to drive the system. This is
directly correlated to the price that the amplifier is worth. So you not only increase
the performance, you also increase the value of the device on the marketplace.Other
Ultra Low Noise Amplifiers are designed for specific narrow band applications. One of
the most popular is the 17.2GHz to 17.7GHz narrow band which is the transmitting
frequency for the Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) system. This particular application
is especially popular in Europe.
By instituting a comprehensive, and aggressive Marketing program, Radio Science
Laboratories, Inc. will network several major sectors to develop a distribution system
that will compliment its product line as well as its Research and Development
Programs. Utilizing a Private Label program developed for smaller companies, a
consortium of established sales reps, and procurement representatives for the
government and military, along with in house marketing programs. RSL,Inc. will
depend on its ability to market its products in a low cost but effective manner, which
can be achieved by producing a superior product.
Fiscal Management will not take a back seat to either Research and Development or
Marketing. RSL,Inc. will consider its tough and rigid Fiscal Programs to be as much of
an Asset as anything else on its Balance Sheet. With high regard for Economic and
Industry forecasts, RSL,Inc. will attempt to minimize and limit its downside risks
during all markets and all Business Cycles.
By utilizing a highly sophisticated Advanced Technology Network System, utilizing
the Hewlett Packard 9000 as the system driver, the organization will be fully
automated and integrated producing efficiency and organization throughout. The
following systems will be included:

Advanced Media Group

Inventory Control
Quality Control
Accounting & Reporting
Information Management
Shipping & Handling
Computer Assisted Design (CAD)
Communications
Automated Assembly Processing
Test and Design System

Page 101 of 121

09/14/2007

Complimenting the previous Netwprk, will be the highly innovative Test and Research
Equipment that will allow engineers to be fully automated from design conception to
the construction of a working model, inclusive of all layout and artwork. To provide
an efficient assembly process, all laborers will be trained and educated to perform all
tasks in the entire process. This will accomplish two things; it will allow production to
be fluid, and even more important it will create a more motivated atmosphere
allowing workers to have more pride.
More importantly, an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Program), will be instituted,
thus giving all workers a sense of pride and security from Management that will
support all employees creating a complimentary and supportive relationship.

Medford NJ. At the end of its first year, the organization included as many as
60 professionals in various location.
Mr. Caterbone was responsible for raising the initial capital of nearly $400,000
for equipment and operation capital. The equity was secured under Regulation
D, Rule 144 of the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pennsylvania. As
Executive Vice President of FMG, Ltd., Mr. Caterbone Was responsible for the
design and installation of an advanced computer networking system,
integrating a host of software allowing the development of in-house Financial
Plans, which was regarded as one of the most comprehensive on the market.
Mr. Caterbone served as President of FMG Advisory, the Registered
Investment Advisor. This wholly owned subsidiary of FMG, Ltd., was
responsible for the marketing of Fee-based Financial Plans and Investment
Advisory and Consulting services.
Mr. Caterbone was instrumental in the conceptual and strategic planning that

SUMMARY OF MANAGEMENT TEAM
Stanley J. Caterbone: Stanley J. Caterbone will act as Chief Executive Officer

Advanced Media Group

Page 104 of 121

09/14/2007

Stanley J. Caterbone: Stanley J. Caterbone will act as Chief Executive Officer


and will be responsible for the management of Radio Science Laboratories,
Inc.. Mr. Caterbone will utilize his past management experience to place an
extreme amount of importance upon developing a comprehensive Strategic
Plan capable of directing a successful and profitable organization. This
Business Plan will chart a course of action for RLS, Inc., that will not only be
used to secure financing, but more importantly as a Plan of Action to be
closely monitored and constantly adjusted in order to pursue the Goals and
Objectives of the entire Organization. Far too many start up companies only
rely upon the Business Plan as a means of raising money, and after they have
accomplished that, the Business Plan is never to be seen again, until they
need additional capital. Unfortunately by that time it is too late because now
their business is in mass confusion, and raising new capitol is the only answer.
In order to minimize the downside risk of this business venture, it becomes
imperative to know precisely where your organization is and where your
organization is going.
In order to initiate and pursue its goals, Mr. Caterbone will demand a High
emphasis on corporate Communicationsfrom Top to Bottom. This will be
implemented and supported by utilizing a highly efficient and automated
Management Information System. Installing a Local Area Network and
developing an advanced system of network technology to support the
following systems:

Communications Systems
Management Information Systems
Accounting & Inventory Control
Research and Design
Marketing Research
Fiscal Management
Distribution Systems

Employee Ownership: Mr. Caterbone will again use his strategy of creating a
dedicated and responsible organization by providing ownership of Radio
Science Laboratories, Inc. to all employees. Firmly believing that productivity
is ones vested interest in the overall success of the organization. An Employee
Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) will be administered. This will accomplish the
following:

Higher Employee Retention


Higher Productivity
Better Working Environment
More Dedication & Responsibility
Increase in Motivation

Mr. Caterbone attributes the fast and successful development of Financial


Management Group, Ltd., to the above strategy. This strategy often provides
the means of attracting highly Qualified Key Personnel to the organization and
directly links personal performance to the success of the organization.
Mr. Caterbone will also rely upon the expertise of various outside consultants

Advanced Media Group

Page 105 of 121

09/14/2007

Mr. Caterbone will also rely upon the expertise of various outside consultants
in order to create a lean but effective management team. This will help to
reduce overhead without loosing the resources to build the successful
organization.
A strong Fiscal Policy will be utilized as an asset to provide the impeius
necessary to reduce the risk associated with start up companies. RSL, Inc.,
will implement specific strategies and techniques to utilize all available
resources and reduce capitol spending unless absolutely necessary in
respective situations. This will become extremely important regarding capitol
expenditure or plant & Equipment, and inventory control procedures.
Lynn C. Cross will serve as Executive Vice President and will be responsible for
Administration and Management ,of the labor force, Lab and Production. Ms.
Cross' experience in managing an LNA production facility will provide the
ingredients for an efficient and profitable Assembly and Production team.
By using a strategy, Cross Assembly Stations, all employees will become
trained & educated on all jobs involving the production of an LNA. This helps
to create the following:

Reduction in Downtime
Higher Productivity
Increased employee moral
Flexibility During Production Cycle
Increased Performance & Quality

An extreme emphasis upon training and education will help to increase the
longevity of the organization and the quality of people.
THE LOW NOISE AMPLIFIER (THE PRODUCT)
Product Description and Specifications: A low noise amplifier (LNA) is a high
gain solid state amplifier that is used to boost, the very weak signal that is
received from the transmit source. There are several transmit/receive
environments in which the Low Noise Amplifier is vital to the performance of
the system:

Satellite Communications
Telemetry Systems
Radar
Radio Astronomy
Interferometry
Tracking and Direction Finding
Optical Communications
Medical Instrumentation
Other Transmit/Receive Environments

The Low Noise Amplifier is vital to the performance of the transmit/receive


system because of its ability to boost the very weak signal (usually about
100,000 times or 50 DB) by reducing the noise at the front end of the radio or
Microwave Frequency, which greatly reduces the overall cost of the system.
The RF or radio frequency is the range of less than 1,000 Megahertz(MGh) in
which signals are received, and the Microwave Frequency is greater than 1000

Advanced Media Group

Page 106 of 121

09/14/2007

which signals are received, and the Microwave Frequency is greater than 1000
MGh. We will design and develop LNA's used for various applications within
the frequency range of DC to 100 GHz. RSL, Inc. will desiga LNA's with both
narrow and wide band applications.
The LNA is vital to the performance of the respective transmit/receive system
because of its effectiveness to substantially increase the signal strength of the
transmit medium. By using a Low Cost method of reducing the noise that the
signal creates when it is amplified by the LNA, a stronger signal is produced
and carried through the receiver. The noise is created because constant
motion of electrons that is present in all molecules.
Why the Low Noise Amplifier for noise reduction? There are primarily three
methods of reducing the Noise Level of the signal in transmit/receive
environments:

Increase Transmit Power


Increase Gain of Receiver Antenna
Reduce the Noise in the Receiver

In the first method we would increase the transmit power to the receiver
antenna. If we would double the transmission power, the result would be less
transmission path loss and the gain will increase over the noise within the
transmission path. This method will produce a much higher cost as apposed to
using an LNA at the receiver front end. The second method would be to
increase the gain of the receiver antenna. This method would also add a
substantial increase in cost to the overall system.
By utilizing an LNA at the receiver front end, we reduce the noise and
substantially increase the signal gain over the transmission path. This allows
us to use less transmission power, creating a better noise Performance and
lower cost of the overall system. This becomes the best alternative when
comparing noise performance, cost effectiveness of the overall system.
Performance and Rating LNA's: The performance and the quality of the Low
Noise Amplifier - its ability to produce a higher signal by lowering its noise
level, substantially increases its value, and market price. RSL, Inc. will
enthusiastically and aggressively utilize its research and design experience of
James A. Cross to concentrate in a niche market of developing a product line
of wide and narrow band LNA's performing at or better than the existing
products currently on the market. This will provide higher margins and less
competition.
THE MICROWAVE INDUSTRY
Description: The microwave industry was born bach in 1886 because of the
historical experiment of a scientist named Henrick Hertz. Using what are now
called microwave Circuits and techniques, Hertz experimentally validated
James Maxwell's theory of Electromagnetism. Hertz went on to build a radio
frequency transmitter and receiver, a small Detector used to measure fields
inside a coaxial line, and a parabolic-reflector transmitter and receiver with
which Hertz demonstrated that electric waves at centimeter wavelengths have
properties similar to those of light waves.

properties similar to those of light waves.


This began the development of the revolutionary, high technological
Microwave Industry. The advent of the Microwave Industry expands into many
dimensions and applications of our present and future society, most common
is the Telecommunications industry. The use of Microwaves has given us a
new understanding of the universe in which we live. (Microwave Journal May
'88 Pg. 44-47 Mario A. Maury, Jr. Maury Microwave Corp., Cucamonga CA).
MAJOR SYSTEMS UTILIZING MICROWAVE COMMUNICATIONS
SYSTEMS
The following chart gives us a good foundation of where Microwaves are used
today, along with the applications:

Communications (Cable, point-to-point, troposcatter, satellite)


Sensors (radar, radiometry)
Military (weapon control, electronic warfare, Strategic DefenseInitiative
(SDI Program)
Navigation (satellite-based, ground, sea, and air)
Instrumentation (microwave, medical)
Energy (heating and cooking, power transmission fusion)
Information

As you can see by the previous chart, Microwave technology supports many
aspects of our lives, at home, at work, and even when sick. (MICROWAVE
JOURNAL September '88, Anniversary Issue).
Satellite Communications Industry: This is one of the largest industries that
will grow worldwide into a $20 Billion Dollar a year business, and is expected
to reach $35 Billion Dollars by the 21st century. The industry is expected to
rebound from its sluggish form of the mid 1980's, which was the direct result
of the development of lightwave technology and more specifically fiber optics.
However, this industry will continue to be a main source of Low Noise
Amplifiers.
There are several trends in the satellite telecommunications market that will
breath new opportunities to the industry. One is the growth of full-time
international video channels. The number of channels has grown from one to
thirty-five, since 1984. High-definition television (HDTV) is also expected to
take off in the mid 1990's. This can especially be seen with the recent
publicity regarding Federal Grant Programs for research and development in
the HDTV. In addition, the videoconferencing market will show extreme signs
of penetration and growth in the 1990's.
Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) is another example of technology that is
finally starting to develop in the foreign marketplace. This specific market will
be especially attractive for our Ultra Low Noise Amplifiers. We will aggressively
pursue a share of this commercial market in order to establish a steady
stream of revenues. ( For more details, see Market Plan) There are several
indications of the growth in this market. France is thought to be leading the
way with the development of ASTRA, TVSAT, AND TDE. Also are BSB, and
Erinsat, and at least one Japanese project. However, one must approach this
market with caution because of the risk associated with projects not

Advanced Media Group

market with caution because of the risk associated with projects not
subsidized by the respective governments.
Satellite Telecommunications (Continued)The mobil satellite market is also
extremely hot right now. Supported by such satellites as INMARSAT,
GEOSTAR, OMNINET, AND LOCSTAR, a solid market will need to be
established in order to give this market some stability.
The most demand will not pursue the glamorous new services as described
above, but rather seek the proven technology of the Fixed Satellite Services.
Internationally this market is expected to grow 10% per year, along with the
domestic market to be equally strong. To date 35 countries have purchased or
leased domestic services from INTELSAT, a satellite that we have launched
into orbit. In the future, 24 more countries have obtained or plan to launch
their own separate domestic satellite systems. However, the satellite industry
must respect the development of fiber optic cables. This will create a market
thrust in the areas of Business networks, and private users. The Public users
will switch heavily toward the fiber optic networks. Over 50,000 miles of cable
has already been laid underground so far.
The biggest improvements in the telecommunications industry are in the area
of digital communications compression techniques. Both telecommunications
and fiber optics are thought to be lagging in their development. Ground
antenna technology, particularly VSAT's and phased array antennas are also
continuing to improve performance while reducing costs. On-board processing
and regeneration, and cellular satellite antenna designs, if developed to
potential, would have tremendous impact on the dramatic satellite gains made
possible by the mid 1990's,or later.
The Japanese are becoming aggressive in satellite communications, as seen in
their pursuit of higher frequencies, on-board processors, and the use of
microterminals in their various satellite projects. The dominance of the United
States, held for nearly two decades, will begin to give way to the Japanese
and the Europeans. NEC of Japan will fight the American strongholds of
Hughes Network Systems, Scientific-Atlanta, and Contel.
Satellite communications of the 1990' swill be marked by the rapidly
developing technology of advanced digital compression techniques, on-board
switching and processing, phase array/flat antennas, and satellite cellular
antennas systems. Opportunities will be seen in the following areas:

New mobile and radio determination satellite services


Expanding worldwide domestic satellite market
New satellite technology
Hot new business networks market
Fast growing VSAT/flat antenna market
Deregulation/by pass/private satellite systems
Solid international satellite growth
New Video opportunities (digital video and HDTV)
Thin route service at takeoff
New tele-health and tele-education applications

There remains to be many old and new opportunities in the satellite


telecommunications industry. The space applications is enormous for

telecommunications industry. The space applications is enormous for


microwave components, however, it will remain a speculative environment. It
is because of this, we will remain cautious and conservative in penetrating any
specific segments of this industry. (MICROWAVE JOURNAL Feb 1989, Dr.
Joseph N. Pelton)

Did They Learn This (Lancaster General Hospital Commitment) From Putin?
September 13th, 2007

MSNBC.com

Russia: A New Way of Censoring Critics


Russian authorities are sending critics to psychiatric wards. Speaking out now seems evidence of madness.

For old dissidents like Vladimir Bukovsky, who was forcibly committed to a psychiatric clinic in the 1960s, these stories bring back chilling memories. Once you are
admitted to a mental hospital, he says, any attempt you make to criticize the system or treatment will be evaluated as a sign or even proof of insanity. In modern Russia, it
seems, as in the Soviet Union, youd almost have to be mad to speak out.
By Owen Matthews and Anna Nemtsova
Newsweek International
Sept. 3, 2007 issue - Soviet doctors once joked that the best way to get thrown into a psychiatric hospital was to send a telegram to Leonid Brezhnev that was critical
Russian leader. Now that old gallows humor might have to be resurrected. Doctors and Kremlin critics say over the past year at least 10 journalists, political activists
critics of local authorities have been wrongfully hospitalized in mental hospitals. And though forcible psychiatric treatment for political reasons is still rare, the Indepe
Psychiatric Association, a Moscow watchdog, says Russias mental hospitals are routinely used by unscrupulous relatives and criminals to remove inconvenient famil
members for financial gain. We see cases of psychiatrists taking bribes and faking diagnoses all the time, says Gennady Gudkov, a member of the Dumas Security
Committee.
In some cases, hospitalization is seen as a way to resolve real-estate disputes or family quarrels. In two current criminal cases, doctors in Nizhniy Novgorod and Ulyan
are on trial, accused of committing old people to psychiatric institutions and selling their apartments for personal profit. (One defendant has pleaded guilty; the other s
patients consented to the sale of their properties.) But increasingly, it is critics of authority who find themselves sent off to state hospitals. Yuri Savenko, head of the
Independent Psychiatric Association, says he hears of new political cases almost every day. The most high-profile thus far involves Larisa Arap, a 48-year-old journali
Apatity, near Murmansk, who had given an interview to a local newspaper in June that was highly critical of the regions state psychiatric hospitals. Arap was also an
activist with the local branch of United Civil Front, a Kremlin opposition movement. In early July, she went to the hospital for a routine check-up required by law to
her driving license. But, as she recalls, someone in the hospital called the police, and by evening, she had been committed to a psychiatric hospital, stripped of her clo
tied to a bed and sedated. Doctors told me that I would experience all the practices I had complained about in the papers, Arap told NEWSWEEK while still in the
hospital. They also told me that I was locked up for life. The hospitals head doctor, Yevgeny Zenin, told NEWSWEEK, We do not care what independent commi
of psychiatrists, or the United Nations, or even aliens tell us. Once we decide to keep a patient here, we will. The courts will always listen to us and no one else. Yet
was luckythe United Civil Front brought the case to the international media, and complained to Russias human-rights ombudsman. He sent a delegation to Apatity
review her case, and they found Arap to be mentally fit. She was released last week. But other cases are still ongoing. Andrey Novikov, a journalist with a newspaper
Rybinsk, in central Russia, was jailed earlier this year on charges of extremism after publicly criticizing Vladimir Putins policies in Chechnya. In February, Noviko
sent for involuntary psychiatric treatment for what his doctors say in court papers would be as long as it takes to have his mental health fully restored.
Another journalist, Pavel Kuznetsov, was declared mentally unsound in February after criticizing local authorities inefficiency in the newspaper. Olga Popova, a
34-year-old engineer, landed in Moscows Mental Hospital Number 13 after seeing Duma Deputy Svetlana Savitskaya in June to complain about alleged abuses at Mo
Serbsky Institute of Social and Forensic Psychiatry. Savitskaya told NEWSWEEK she believed her visitor to be insane. She called the police to remove Popova fro
office and wrote a note saying that in her opinion Popova was mentally unstable, on the basis of which she was committed. Three doctors from the Independent Psych
Association who have campaigned or her release examined Popova and found no reasons for involuntary hospitalization. Popova is currently appealing her
hospitalization through the courts.
For old dissidents like Vladimir Bukovsky, who was forcibly committed to a psychiatric clinic in the 1960s, these stories bring back chilling memories. Once you a
admitted to a mental hospital, he says, any attempt you make to criticize the system or treatment will be evaluated as a sign or even proof of insanity. In modern R
seems, as in the Soviet Union, youd almost have to be mad to speak out.

Lancaster County Prothonotary Hiding LGH ORDER


September 8th, 2007

Today I found that the Lancaster County Prothonotary did not post the
ORDER of August 10 by Judge Cullen
in the CATERBONE v. LANCASTER GENERAL HOSPIT
and DR. EMILY PRESSLEY(CI-06-03349) Court Docket Sheet. Judge Cullens ORDERED that I amend the original complaint by August 20, 2007. However, that
deadline was impossible to meet, so I filed Appeal
an
for Reconsideration.
Now, today, since Judge Cullen did not rule on that Appeal for Reconsideration, I will fileAppeal
an
to the August 10, 2007 ORDER to Amend the LGH complaint to t
Pennsylvania Superior Court.
The Clerk of Courts also is hiding a CONTINUANCE fromCriminal
the
Court Docket Sheet of case no. 4771-06
that Assistant District Attorney Deborah Mezzerou filed on
August 27, 2007. This criminal case
(See Letter of June 4, 2007 re DUI Defense Strategy)
is a false DUI charge (.073) that the Lancaster County District Attorney has been
stalling. In June it was agreed that the DUI and all remaining charges would be Nolle Prossed
, (2 of the charges were in June) on July 2, 2007, however the Lancaster Cou
District Attorney reneged on the agreement for July 2, 2007, and keeps stalling the Nolle Prosed.

Psychiatric Abuse?
September 8th, 2007

Date: September 7, 2007


To: Janice Longer, Esq.
Re: Psychiatric Human Rights Abuse
Could you please site me the statute that would allow the Court to mandate a Court Order for Psychiatric Treatment as part of sentencing, and how this would not be
violation of my civil rights?
Also, consider the fact that the civil complaint that I filed against Lancaster General Hospital for the illegal involuntary commitment; is now in the hands of this same
Judge James P. Cullen.
Suspiciously, Judge James P. Cullen is the Judge assigned in case no. 06-03349 CATERBONE v. LANCASTER GENERAL HOSPITAL and DR. EMILY PRESSLY.
Now, I am alleging that he is protecting Lancaster General Hospital and the misconduct of the Southern Regional Police Department. Remember, you said that you di
want to discuss any issues regarding the 302 commitment because they are a civil matter.
That is my point, this Judge is now using the criminal case 3179 to protect the interests of the the Defendants in my civil complaint by trying to force a psychiatric e
to discredit me; which for all practical purposes, a psychiatrist can virtually say anything someone wants them to say. Especially a Psychiatrist paid by Lancaster Cou
is all based on theory, with no factual basis.
It is very possible that Lancaster General Hospital could end up like the following, and Judge Cullens knows it:
On June 16, 2003, Roy E. Lund of Pennsylvaniawas awarded $1.1 million for being falsely imprisoned in a psychiatric facility, Northwest Medical Center in Oil City
Penns. The jury found the hospital had been grossly negligent in its violation of the states Mental Health Procedures Act, which was with reckless indifference to M
Lund.

Janice,
It seems that Judge James P. Cullen and Dr. Jerome Gottlieb have worked together when he was a Public Defender on the Zook PCRA Appeal to the Supreme Court.
You should read about Appellant testified regarding his belief that the Department of Corrections implanted a radio transmitter in his head thatenables them to cont
thoughts, pump conversation into Appellants head, and project images into his field of vision.
Now, I told you that I had been contracted by DARPA, and gave you some information about what they did. Read the document about the Department of Defense DA
Lifelog program, and remember what Remote Channeling is, Mental Telepathy
.DARPA Robert Zook, Judge James Cullen, & Psychiatrist Jerome Gottlieb Sept 5 2007
I would hope that you will forward this to Dr. Gottlieb, and everyone better be careful about this Psychiatric Evaluation, and what information you are all fishing fo
The Zook Appeal is at:

http://64.233.169.104/search?q=cache:hEgVsL8AF3MJ:caselaw.findlaw.com/data2/penns
I expect you have rescheduled your meeting or the Psychiatric Evaluation.

Lancaster General Hospital Medical File of April 5, 2006


September 3rd, 2007

Lancaster General Hospital Medical File of April 5, 2006- This is how they they tried to covered me up in 2006. It is the old insanity strategy to discredit every civi
court document that I filed. Of course, just like in 1987
, Whistleblowers Finding of Facts 1983 to 2005
, it never really works, it just creates a diversion, and a few causes
actions. Not to mention the civil conspiracy and RICO statutes that it proves.
Now if you consider all of the criminal charges that I have reversed,25 Criminal Charges Dismissed, Nolle Pros, or Reversed 1987 to 2007
, you will understand what a
whistleblower that challenges an administrations misconduct, experiences.
Janice Longer, my Court Appointed Attorneyis going to have to explain the legal authority surrounding the Psychiatric Evaluation that was now ordered, without the
Psychological Evaluation ever completed, as stated inJudge James P. Cullen ORDER of July 3, 2007
. I tried to keep everything on the record and with the consent of An
Woodland, the Psychologist, I recorded the Psychological Evaluation August 20, 2007. As far as I have determined, the law states that a Psychological Evaluation in
Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes for Pre Sentance Investigations, states that the evaluations are used only for determinations of the accuseds state of mind at the tim
the alleged crime. They are trying to discredit me; provide a record to counter my complaint against Lancaster General Hospital and Dr. Pressley regarding the $1840
5 day
Dollar Per Day or $9964 Illegal HospitalizationSection 302 Commitment of April 5, 2006; and of course discredit every civil action that I filed since May 16, 2005; a
course my Federal False Claims Act for Whistleblowing on ISC in 1987. Clever, arent they?

The Plaintiff alerted the situation and requested a continuance from the Honorable Judge Cullen,
who refused.
The Plaintiff arrived home from trial at approximately 6:00 pm, and called the Pennsylvania State
Police from the home of Mr. Joseph Caterbone, and spoke to Cpl. Lynam of the Lancaster Barracks
who would not assist the Plaintiff in the matter. Cpl. Lynam kept questioning the owner of the
property, and the Plaintiff repeated that the property was not in settlement and the Plaintiff did
not receive service of the Distribution Schedule.
