Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates 
  
The  Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,  as well as disclosures included 
elsewhere in this Form 10 K, are based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting 
principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and 
judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingencies. On an ongoing 
basis, we evaluate the estimates used, including those related to impairment and useful lives of intangible assets, other than temporary 
impairment of investments, assumptions used to estimate fair values of warrants we hold to purchase equity securities of other companies, 
allowances for accounts receivable and notes receivable and fair values used to record revenue related to related party revenue transactions. We 
base our estimates on historical experience, current conditions and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the 
circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily 
apparent from other sources as well as identifying and assessing our accounting
