WED Enterprises / Walt Disney Productions Royalty Payments

A typed and handwritten letter including edits from Harrison A. Price (HAP) to Bill (William Cottrell, President, WED Enterprises, Inc.), which begins as follows “After a careful analysis we have come up with an approach to the WED / WDP royalty problem that appears to have merit. The essence of it is that WED would receive a profit on its design work through royalties on attractions designed, and that the royalties would be collected on that portion of attendance that is over break-even levels.” A detailed system of calculating royalty payments is included as are hypothetical examples. A supplemental handwritten note by HAP explains that eventually WDP bought WED back and royalties became a nonevent.
