"I understood the question. I think the concept that you are having trouble with is that much of the hotheaded talk that flies on these individual stock boards is about short-term price fluctuations, not long term hard numbers on the company. If S2 does really well, the price may go up more than if it does OK, not because it means anything concrete or immediate, but because it influences peoples attitudes and perceptions, which influences their willingness to buy or sell the stock for perhaps not-so-rational reasons. Lots of short-term investor types, people who think they are long-termers but lack patience, and people who just plain wildly extrapolate into the future on the basis of small pieces of information populate these boards. Ascribing to and understanding the official Fool philosophy is not a requirement of board membership."

What I am trying to ask is if you know what the deal is with Sony? Does Marvel get a fixed amount? Or, does it vary based upon how well S2 does? Do you know?
