Information Site for GoDigital, Inc. and dba Distribber Liquidation

Basic Information

  • GD ABC, LLC is the Assignee of GoDigital, Inc. and dba Distribber ("Assignee") under an Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors ("ABC") under California Law.   An ABC is generally more efficient and less expensive than a bankruptcy liquidation.

 

  • On September 19, 2019, GoDigital, Inc. commenced the ABC and all assignable assets were assigned to the Assignee.

  • The Assignee was assigned GoDigital Inc.'s assets only, all of the liabilities of GoDigital, Inc. remain with GoDigital, Inc.  To be clear, GoDigital, Inc. no longer has any assets.  

  • The Assignee is winding-down the GoDigital/Distribber legacy aggregation and distribution operations, including facilitating the removal of content from streaming media platforms. 

 

  • The Assignee will also liquidate any assets and perform an accounting.

  • After completion of the accounting and collection and verification of all Proof of Claim forms, the Assignee will make distributions, if any is available, to creditors.   

  • Proof of Claim Forms may be assessed here.

  • The entire process is expected to take approximately nine (9) months.   

  • The Assignee does not at this time expect to make any distributions until the conclusion of the ABC process.

  • NOTE: At this time, the Assignee is projecting de minimis, if any at all, distributions to content-owners.  This means money owed by GoDigital/Distribber for unpaid license fees and services fees earned for the period prior to September 19, 2019 is highly unlikely to be recovered from the ABC estate.

  • The Assignee expects to provide periodic updates by email and on this site.

  • The Assignee is professionally directed by GlassRatner Advisory & Capital Group, LLC, a national consulting firm specializing in troubled company situations.

Information for 

GoDigital / Distribber Licensors

  • Licensors should immediately make arrangements to secure a new aggregator or distributor for their content.  The Assignee is NOT providing any transitional services or recommendations of new aggregators or distributors.

  • Please make sure to consider any special captions or subtitles that go with your film.

  • As of January 20, 2020, the Assignee is in the process of communicating with the streaming platforms to fully close the GoDigital/Distribber accounts on the platforms.

  • The closure of the GoDigital/Distribber accounts will very soon result in films being unavailable on the platforms.   Filmmakers will need to contract with a new distributor to relaunch their films.

  • NOTE: At this time, the Assignee is projecting de minimis, if any at all, distributions to content-owners for pre-ABC revenue.  This means money owed by GoDigital/Distribber for unpaid license fees earned and services fees paid for the period prior to September 19, 2019 is highly unlikely to be recovered from the ABC estate.

  • UPDATE ON AMAZONAmazon has terminated GoDigital/Distribber content and the Assignee has no access to an Amazon dashboardThe Assignee does not have any control over content previously on Amazon.   Film makers/Licensors should contact Amazon directly as apparently individual accounts can be established and an aggregator is not necessary for Amazon.   This is the URL for Amazon Prime Video Direct https://videodirect.amazon.com/home/landing

  • UPDATE ON FANDANGO Fandango and the Assignee have negotiated that as a courtesy to the filmmakers and Licensors, Fandango will not  require content to be removed and re-loaded when changing aggregators.  Accordingly, the filmmaker or licensor's new aggregator or distributor just needs to advise Fandango of the change and it will simply update the account record with no disruption to the availability of the film.

  • UPDATE ON NETFLIX:  If you had an agreement with GoDigital relating to content that is available on the Netflix service, the Assignee wants to facilitate an orderly and smooth transition of your license.  The Assignee has no objection to you working directly with Netflix to conclude your agreement with GoDigital and enter into a new agreement with Netflix.   It is our understanding that Netflix is prepared to enter into a direct license with you.
