Editor needed (past tense)
Wow, here's an expensive comma dispute. Legal issue. The text in question says that an agreement ...
... shall continue in force for a period of five years from the date it is made, and thereafter for successive five year terms, unless and until terminated by one year prior notice in writing by either party.One party thought they had a solid five-year contract with options to renew. The other party argued that the agreement was good up to five years (with an option to renew), but could be terminated at any time.
