Re: Michael Chasalow

Michael Chasalow was quoted about a legal dispute over the ownership of fact-checking site Snopes.com. “"Of course the underlying issue is whether the sale resulted in five individual owners or ownership by Proper Media," he e-mailed. “It seems most likely that Proper Media assumed that the individual owners would act in Proper Media’s interest, but it is not clear whether the five individuals had contractual obligations to do so. If the sale resulted in five owners who were not bound by contract to act in a certain way, then any one of the owners would, in theory, be free to act individually, with Mikkelson. On the other hand, the five individual owners could have contractually agreed to vote for a certain director or directors (for example the president of Proper Media), but such a provision would need to be clearly articulated along with consequences for not following such a provision."
