...Crown Awards, Inc. v. Discount Trophy & Co., Inc. U.S. Court of Appeals, Second Circuit 2009 U.S. App. Lexis 8540 (2009) Material Facts of the Case: Crown Awards is a retailer of awards and trophies sold through mail order catalogs and via the Internet. Crown designed and sold a diamond-shaped spinning trophy for which it owned two copyright registrations. Discount Trophy is one of Crown’s competitors, and it sold a trophy that was substantially similar to Crown’s Spin Trophy. Crown requested that Discount discontinue the sale of the alleged copy, and when Discount refused, Crown filed suit in the Southern District of New York. Legal and Ethical Issues of the Case: In order to prevail on a claim of copyright infringement, a plaintiff must demonstrate both ownership of a valid copyright and infringement. "To establish infringement, the copyright owner must demonstrate that (1) the defendant has actually copied the plaintiff's work; and (2) the copying is illegal because a substantial similarity exists between the defendant's work and the protectable elements of plaintiff's." Actual copying may be proved directly or indirectly. Indirect evidence of copying includes proof that the defendants had access to the copyrighted work and similarities that are probative of copying between the works." Because direct proof of access is often impossible to adduce, the law permits a plaintiff to carry his burden on this point through evidence that "an alleged infringer......

Wal-Mart: but We Do Give Them a 10 Percent Employee Discount

...Case Study 22, Wal-Mart: But We Do Give Them a 10 Percent Employee Discount 1. Are the ethical issues Wal-Mart faces really any different from other large retailer? The ethical issues that Wal-Mart faces are not different from other larger retailers. Wal-Mart is larger retailers that are currently in the media do current lawsuit and ethical issues. All retailers are focus on the operational and cost of the company instead of the ethical issues and behaviors within the company. 2. Wal-Mart officials have stated that they don't feel women are interested in management positions at the company. Do you agree or disagree? I disagree. Past research and studies have approve that women in this century are demanding higher management position and feel that are qualified for those positions. Wal-Mart official hasn’t given their female a fair opportunity to apply or compete for a management position with the company. 3. Wal-Mart is continually criticized for its health-care policy. Is this really a controversy in the area of business Ethics? Why or why not? Yes, this really a controversy in the area of business Ethic. After reading this case study I see a different view of Wal-Mart. Employers should have the best interest in their employees’ health. An avoiding and not offer best benefit for the employees shows that this company lacks the corporate social responsibilities.

The coupon rate equals the annual coupon payment divided by par value. The coupon yield equals the annual coupon payment divided by the bond’s market price. 6. A bond sells at a discount when the bond’s coupon rate is lower than the market’s required rate of return on the bond. 11. An issuer benefits from an option to call a bond, because such an option allows the issuer to lock in a more favorable interest rate if rates should fall.. The option to convert bonds into common stock benefits bondholders. Once the stock price rises high enough, the value of the bonds starts to behave like the stock’s value—the prices start to rise. So convertible bonds offer investors some minimal level of return plus a lot of upside potential. 13. The price of a Treasury note quoted as 98:10 is 98 10/32 percent of par value or $983.125.

My Discount Rate

...My Personal Discount rate is... Discount rate refers to the interest rate that you are willing to pay on a given amount of money today to end up with a given amount of money in the future. Recently I requested an auto loan to buy a new or used car. I was very much interested with a Honda accord. I have $2000 in my saving account to be used as a down payment. During my window shopping I found it very difficult to find a car that I’m willing to pay for it. The main reason not to come into clear decision was which one of these cars will save me some money and spares my driving for longer time. Since I know how discount rate works, I have been able to make decisions easily than I expected. New 2015 Honda accord costs $24000 with zero mileage on it. The interest rate for this car over a period of five years is 1.49%. I f I put down payment of $2000, and then finance $22000. Therefore the total loan owed after five years will be approximated to $27000. On the other hand I have a used 2008 Honda accord for $11750 under interest rate of 17% for five years. After $2000 down payment, the total amount owed after five years is approximately to $23400. Based on the simple financial analysis above I found that the discount rate on a new car is much lower than that of the used car. This lead me to a better decision of choosing a new Honda accord over used one. New Honda accord has lower uncertainty compared to a used one. Over that period of time new Honda is more......

Ladi Discount

...Ladi Discount To: Mr. Theodor Von Hessen Chief Executive Officer, Ladi Discount From: John Faggit Business analyst, Ladi Discount Date: October 23, 2015 Subject: The development of consumer behaviour and the industry of discount stores and supermarkets in Denmark. As you requested on October 19, this briefing provides information about the current situation at the Danish market within the industry of discount stores and supermarkets as well as consumer behaviour. I here present a summary of the most important elements from my research. Key findings: The past 10 years we have experienced an increase in the consumption of the average Danish consumer on about 30 per cent. People are getting richer every year and therefore spend more money. During the last 15 years, the consumers’ spare time has been reduced by two hours in weekdays. They have less time to shop in stores and spend more time shopping online with the effect that there will be fewer “offline” shops. However, those remaining will become bigger (an average increase in area by 2-3 per cent the latest years). On that behalf, the location of shops and supermarkets is becoming even more important. In malls, and other places where there tend to be more people during the day, will become an attractive place to be located. How to attract customers will be vital in the future where clean concepts and interior design in shops will be essential to retain customers and attract new. The turnover......

Wal-Mart: but We Do Give Them a 10 Percent Employee Discount

...GROUP ASSIGNMENT -1 Total Marks: 10 Read the following case study thoroughly and answer the questions given at the end. (Consult course syllabus for writing guidelines. Total length should not exceed five pages) C A S E 22 Submission Deadline: 16-02-2015 Wal-Mart: But We Do Give Them a 10 Percent Employee Discount "l I Tal-Mart began as a simple dream by its founder, Sam Walton: to provide low l' l' prices for customers every day. That philosophy has taken Wal-Mart in fortyfour years from one five-and-ten store in Bentonville, Arkansas, to the largest retailer in the world with estimated annual sales of close to $300 billion. In 2005 it was the largest company in the world based on revenue and slipped to number two in 2006 when Exxon/Mobil took over the number one position. Wal-Mart has more than 1.5 million employees worldwide, including 1.3 million in the United States, and generates more than 2 percent of the gross national product in the United States. On December 19, 2005, the results of a Pew Research survey showed that 81 percent of the 1,502 people who responded to the survey considered Wal-Mart a good place to shop. In addition, 69 percent of the respondents stated that they had a favorable opinion of Wal-Mart. However, 31 percent of the respondents stated that they had an unfavorable image of Wal-Mart. Furthermore, 68 percent of the respondents believed that having a Wal-Mart store in their area was good for the community, and 64......

Methodology - "“Just Give Me a Number!” Practical Values for the Social Discount Rate"

...projects in a closed economy are most likely to displace investment, as the increased demand for loanable funds raises interest rates, given the supply of savings, and crowds out private investment * Consumption is much less likely to be reduced because it is not very responsive to changes in the market interest rate * Tax financing is much less likely to displace investment * Taxes reduce consumers’ disposable incomes and most disposable income is consumed rather than saved * If a project is strictly tax-financed, if supply of foreign funds is extremely responsive to the interest rate or the project is quite small, or if the percentage of costs and benefits comes from investment is the same in every period then discount at the CRI. * If the project is deficit financed, the supply of savings and of foreign funds are both assumed to be very unresponsive to the interest rate, then the augmented investment flows should be converted to their consumption equivalents using a SPC before discounting at the CRI ALTERNATIVE INTRAGENERATIONAL DISCOUNTING METHODS * Discounting at the ROI or the Weighted Social Opportunity Cost Method (WSOC Method) * Discounting all flows of costs and benefits at the before-tax marginal ROI * Opportunity cost of doing a public project is the forgone return on the marginal private project * Note that if all the resources for the project displace private investment and the SPC can be calculated as the......

Delta's Strategic Fit with a Discount Airline

...Brief: Delta Airlines Executive Summary: After years of instability, decreasing profit margins, and volatile costs, the airline industry is experiencing stabilization and profitability. Though low-cost carriers, such as Southwest and Jetblue, were able to succeed during rough economic times, Delta should not launch a new stand-alone discount airline to directly compete within this market. As shown in Exhibit 1, despite recent changes in the industry - including consolidation, bankruptcy filings, and a forecasted positive economic outlook - intense competition and supplier power remain extremely high for the industry. Based on the following analysis, Delta is in direct competition with other legacy airlines such as United/Continental and American Airlines for the higher end market juxtaposed to its less direct competition with low-cost carriers, e.g. Southwest, which fall into a separate strategic group targeting a different market and consumer. As a result of Delta’s entrenched strategy of providing many routes and amenities for higher ticket prices, the company’s core competencies, resources, and activities do not align with the discount airline market and, therefore, the company should not launch a new low-cost carrier airline. Company and Competitor Analysis: Delta’s core competencies are to provide multiple domestic and international routes to travelers, customer service and luxury, technological innovation, and access to popular destinations. These......

Hard Discount

...Le Hard Discount alimentaire Le Hard Discount Alimentaire L’historique du hard-discount alimentaire -L’historique Une forme de hard-discount (non alimentaire) est apparue en 1917 aux Etats-Unis. Cependant, le hard-discount alimentaire est réellement inventé en Allemagne dans la période post-seconde guerre mondiale (1947) par les frères Albrecht fondateurs d’Aldi. Après un échec dans les années 70, le hard-discount alimentaire arrive, véritablement, en France durant l’année 1988, par le lancement d’ED. A savoir, que la grande distribution ne croit pas en cette nouvelle forme de distribution. -Concept (Concept construit sur des prix bas, 20 % à 30% inférieurs aux GMS, accord solide et de longue durée avec les fournisseurs pour réduire les couts d’achats, marges réduites pour augmenter les volumes de vente.) -Définition « Un magasin hard-discount est un libre service alimentaire avec un personnel réduit, une présentation sommaire, un assortiment limité aux produits de base, des prix bas, peu ou pas de marques nationales, mais des produits sous marques de distributeurs ou des produits sans marque ». Le marché Pourquoi un tel succès ? Le phénomène est d'une simplicité désarmante : le pouvoir d'achat en chute libre entraîne l'explosion de la fréquentation des enseignes de l'alimentation « low cost » appelée plus fréquemment hard discount.

Causality and the Diversification Discount

...1 Causality and the Diversification Discount 1 Introduction Does corporate diversification, i.e. the expansion of a firm’s business operations into unrelated areas, destroy shareholder value? The wealth effects associated with conglomerates have been controversially discussed in scholarly journals ever since the seminal papers of Lang and Stulz (1994) and Berger and Ofek (1995) suggested that diversification reduces shareholder value. Both find that conglomerates are attributed with a lower market value than a portfolio of comparable focussed firms operating in the same businesses as the conglomerate. This finding seemed to suggest the hypothesis of a “diversification discount”. In line with this Scharfstein and Stein (2000) postulate "it has become almost axiomatic among researchers in finance and strategy that a policy of corporate diversification is typically value reducing.” Yet, subsequently financial scholars have challenged this dogma of a diversification discount. They did so with respect to the method used (Mansi and Reeb (2002); Glaser and Müller (2010)) and the causal interference (Graham et al. (2002); Campa and Kedia (2002); Villalonga (2004)). Taking these latest developments into account, the empirical evidence on the value effects of corporate diversification is mixed. The controversy that has evolved around these wealth effects provides a suitable setting to investigate the pitfalls associated with causal analysis and interference......
