Accrued Liabilities

As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the Company has the following accrued liabilities:


    6/30/2016     12/31/2015  
Accrued Salaries and Wages (a)   $ 116,385     $ 96,385  
Disputed Trade Payables (b)     925,000       925,000

Other Accrued Expenses     303,110       509,477  
Total Accrued Liabilities   $ 2,834,078     $ 1,530,862  


  (a) Accrued Salaries and Wages represent accrued vacation payable to employees.
  (b) As part of the Merger, the Company assumed certain liabilities from a previous member of A Squared which has claimed certain liabilities totaling $925,000. The Company disputes the basis for this liability. As of June 30, 2016, the Company believes that the statute of limitations applicable to the assertion of any legal claim relating to the collection of these liabilities has expired and therefore believes this liability is uncollectible. The Company is working with the counterparty to extinguish this liability.
  (c) During the first quarter of 2014, the Company entered into an exclusive three-year agreement with Sony DADC, the optical disc manufacturing and fulfillment arm of Sony, to provide all CD, DVD and BD replication, packaging and distribution to the Company’s direct customers. Under the terms of the long-term, exclusive supply chain services agreement, the Company will order a minimum level of disc replication, packaging and distribution services for its content across all physical media, including DVD, CD, and Blu-ray from Sony DADC. As consideration for these minimum order levels, the Company received a total of $1,500,000, $750,000 during the first quarter of 2014 and $750,000 during the first quarter of 2015. At the end of the term, the Company is obligated to repay a pro-rata portion of the advance if it has not ordered a minimum number of DVD/CD units during the term.
