Big Time Toymaker (BTT) develops, manufactures, and distributes board games and other toys to the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Chou is the inventor of a new strategy game he named Strat.BTT was interested in distributing Strat and entered into an agreement with Chou whereby BTT paid him $25,000in exchange for exclusive negotiationrights for a90-day period. The exclusive negotiation agreement stipulated that no distributioncontract existed unless it was in writing. Just three days before the expiration of the 90-day period, the parties reached an oral distribution agreement at a meeting. Chou offered to draft the contract that would memorialize their agreement. Before Chou drafted the agreement, a BTT manager sent Chou an e-mail with the subject line “Strat Deal” that repeated the key terms of the distribution agreement including price, time frames, and obligations of both parties. Although the e-mail never used the word contract,it stated that all of the terms had been agreed upon. Chou believed that this e-mail was meant to replace the earlier notion that he should draft a contract, and one month passed.

 

BTT then sent Chou a fax requesting that he send a draft for a distribution agreement contract. Despite the fact that Chou did so immediately after receiving the BTT fax, several more months passed without response from BTT. BTT had a change in management and informed Chou they were not interested in distributing Strat.

2. What facts may weigh in favor of or against Chou in terms of the parties’ objective intent to contract?

Questions 1 and 2 (above)?

 

4. What role does the statute of frauds play in this contract?

 

5. Could BTT avoid this contract under the doctrine of mistake? Explain. Would either party have any

other defenses that would allow the contract to be avoided?

 

6. Assuming, arguendo,that this e-mail does constitute an agreement, what consideration supports this

agreement?
