TDLI.com Limited. 
    In July 1998, we entered into a joint venture agreement with TDLI.com Limited, a subsidiary of Thomson

the joint venture of $12,000. On August 31, 2000, we acquired TDLI.com Limited, a privately held company based in Hampshire, England that 
in turn holds approximately fifty percent of TDL InfoSpace (Europe) Limited, a joint venture originally formed by InfoSpace and Thomson
