Title

[HM89AAS], Agreement, Edison General Electric Co, Thomas Alva Edison, March 1889

Editor's Notes

Summary: This is an agreement between the Edison General Electric Company and Thomas Edison. In this agreement Edison reserves his inventions to the Company, subject to any rights arising from prior obligations to the Edison Electric Light Company. In return Edison receives 5,000 shares of its capital stock, and will pay Edison sums equal to one fifth of the profit from Edison’s inventions, and will reimburse him for the costs of his experiments and securing patents. If disagreements arise, each side will select arbiters, who will in turn select a third arbiter, and together their decisions will bind both parties. The agree applies only to North America and South America.
