I can ask him, but I'm not sure he'll tell me. He lives in France and I don't talk to him very much. The DNDN post was such an outrageous rumor, I had to tickle him to see what the deal was. I figured it was false, but just wanted to check.
As far as partnering with DNDN, I think that'd be a good deal. SNY's network is great in Europe (and world-wide for that matter). But they have NO interest in BUYING DNDN. They got enough going for themselves to think about taking on anything else.
But thanks for asking. I'll see what he'll tell me.
