In trying to STUMP THE LIBRARIAN regarding the Public Research Foundation's
Press Release, "HIDDEN TIES BETWEEN IRS AND SCIENTOLOGY REVEALED," Zed
asked (MUCH too loudly--Sh-h-h-h-h!):

>The value given for Hubbard's intellectual property in the 1992 >ruling of
>the US claims court is $25 million. Where does the >"close to $100
>million" figure come from?

GOOD QUESTION, ZED, BUT...YOU DIDN'T STUMP THE LIBRARIAN!

One place I can find where this figure exists is in a post that was right
here on a.r.s. back in July of this year.

Here are the germane excerpts:

Well, cuddling my body-heat-powered calculator (would you look at that
thing *glow*!), I tote it up this way: Copyrights (intellectual property),
$25,000,000, puh-LU-U-US trademarks (intellectual property, natch),
$80,000,000, eequ-u-a-a-als: $105,000,000!

Now, where Steve Jebson got his $80 million figure for the trademarks is
something I don't know, and where the Public Research Foundation got their
figures from, I don't know. They dint (oo, I get *goosebumps* when Dennis
says that) come ask this *accomodating* librarian for figures.

But I know I found documentation supporting the facts, and that's what
helps me keep *my* figure--climbing up and down that rickety old rolling
wooden ladder in this short, tight skirt. Since supporting documentation is
what I promised to provide...

NICE TRY, ZED, AND COME BACK *ANY* TIME TO PLAY...

STUMP THE LIBRARIAN.

Now, whattcha' going to take off, Zed? (I *did* tell you this was a strip
challenge, didn't I?)
