sa110>That is *so bogus* an argument that I'd laugh my head off.

A contract (verbal or written) is a contract. It commits you to either doing something or accepting something. In short once you sign it it's legal irrespective of how long you considered it's contents. If (as you now seem to be accepting) that ROL only signed off on it in a rush and failed to appreciate the nuiances then that is their own tough luck.

Besides that whole argument you advance doesn't wash, how can you negotiate something and not read it or be aware of it's implications?

As someone else pointed out by revealing selective snippets from the 1999 agreement (something that's *never* happened before) Aaron (or ROL or both) have arguably broken whatever Non-Disclosure Agreement that was in place (that may well also amount to a breech of contract supposing confidentiality was a part of said document).
