 NASA Technological Spinoff Fables
Spinoff proponents overlook the fundamental difference between private profit-seeking RandD and federal expenditures that are labeled RandD.
The argument in favor of spinoffs is further flawed by its failure to distinguish the relative contributions of technology push and market pull in the transfer process.
The implicit assumption of the spinoff advocates is that the primary bottle-neck to technical innovation is the absence of new technology, rather than the absence of a market.

 Report: Morgan Stanley reassessing spinoff - Boston.com - Business   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
In April, the Morgan Stanley board authorized the company to pursue a spinoff of Discover, which was a part of Dean Witter Discover and Co. prior to the 1997 takeover of Morgan Stanley.
Discover had been championed by Purcell, the former head of Dean Witter who led the combined company after the merger, and the spinoff was seen as a concilatory gesture by the embattled CEO, who was under fire for allowing a number of highly regarded employees to leave the company.
Morgan Stanley has repeatedly stressed that the spinoff was not a done deal, and the board could ultimately decide not to pursue it further.

 Cablevision’s Broadband Spinoff Gets Mixed Reactions
While the spinoff plan announced June 2 would allow Cablevision to ultimately remove the costly satellite television venture from its books, the company intends first to plow hundreds of millions of dollars into the new company to give it a running start.

Highlands contended in the lawsuit that "after the spinoff, Brown and Root began tendering to Highlands Insurance large numbers of claims" on workers injured by asbestos exposure.

 SPINOFF   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
It was the spinoff concept that transformed California’s Santa Clara Valley from an agricultural area of commercial fruit orchards and vineyards into the world center of semiconductor development and production.
Spinoffs rapidly evolved into large companies and in turn, suffered their own depletion of talent as spinning-off proliferated.
During the decades that followed, the venture capital concept was refined, manufacturing cost control evolved into an indispensable discipline and entirely new management structures had to be invented to keep pace with technologies that moved into uncharted territory.

 Yo! Joey Scores "Friends" Spinoff - Jul 24, 2003 - E! Online News   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Matt LeBlanc, twice Emmy-nominated for his role as the dim-witted wannabe actor, is going solo, inking a deal with NBC and producer Warner Bros. Television to star in a Friends spinoff, the parties announced in a joint statement Thursday.
The idea of a Joey-centric spinoff were first floated last fall, with plans going into overdrive once LeBlanc and his Friends pals agreed to disband in May 2004 at the end of the upcoming 10th season.
With both Friends and Frasier (which is, of course, the hugely successful spinoff of Cheers and what NBC hopes is a blueprint for Joey) on their way out at the end of the season, and CBS' CSI-Survivor Thursday roster seriously challenging in the Nielsens, NBC is desperate to come up with a new comedy franchise.

But as chairman of Sony Corp. of America, Stringer has said a potential spinoff of Sony's lucrative U.S.-based film and music assets in the right kinds of market might be worth considering to more fully recognize and leverage their value.
That possibility, like the spinoff of Viacom's broadcast properties into a "value"-driven entity, is raising a red flag for broadcasters.
While broadcast network-affiliated TV station groups are generating healthy free cash flow today that will be used for share buybacks and dividends to appease shareholders, they are likely to run into the same death dirge now plaguing radio station groups, which were free-cash-flow generators a few years ago.

 State: Audit: PRIDE spinoff is illegal
The St. Petersburg Times reported in July that PRIDE invested at least $10-million to establish spinoff companies in the past five years, even as revenues dropped more than 30 percent and its number of inmate jobs hit a 15-year low.
In return, the state is entitled to share profits, a provision that has never been exercised, and is the beneficiary if PRIDE shuts its doors.
The new spinoffs wouldn't be subject to the same marketing constraints as a prison labor company, plus they could launch other nonprison businesses that might eventually help PRIDE's bottom line.

Its intent is to spur expanded national benefit, in terms of new products and new jobs, by facilitating the commercial application of e technology; it encourages greater use of the storehouse of knowledge by providing a channel linking the technology and those who might be able to put it to advantageous use.
