Pre-Review Disclaimer: Each person receives ONE pre-review for each assignment – this is yours! Please note that my comments are not all inclusive for this pre-review. Pre-Reviews are completed in about 15-minutes of my time and do not have the lengthy review (about 45-minutes to an hour) that a final paper might have from me. You are not exempt from new issues found during the more thorough review. The early review though, provides the individual a good feeling towards how well their paper was assembled! Fix all of the content BEFORE submitting your final paper. If you have any questions about this feedback, follow-up questions must occur via a phone call where we both have the paper in front of us to discuss (no further emails please).
Here are some high-level thoughts:
· Only one authored source used.
· You cannot use numbered / alpha lists – write in full sentences.
· You sent me this on Thursday – AFTER the Wednesday deadline, this is the ONLY time I will review something sent to me past the kind offer date I clearly articulated.
· See other comments. Thank you!
Thank you for the opportunity to pre-review! If I can help, I am a phone call away (352-596-2088 – Office Hours – DAILY from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. EST or by appointment in advance
From Announcement in CLASSROOM.
Remember, if you want your PAPERS pre-reviewed – I will be open to do so for you IF you submit it to me by WEDNESDAY before the Sunday due date via email only to (put CMU – MKT 560 PRE-REVIEW REQUEST in subject line).
Reminder…per ANNOUNCEMENT in classroom:
I expect that ALL papers should adhere to APA compliance…and that includes the following:
· NO PDF FILES – all papers must be submitted in Microsoft Word
· Times New Roman 12 Font
· Avoid using “I” statements, APA does not allow first person writing.
· One Inch Margins
· And more…using the 6th Edition as our guide.
· Your reference list and your citations must match exactly – in other words, do not list your reference as Forbes magazine and then put the author in the citation credit (McFaul, 2011) – put the author’s name first in the reference list too! Match – match – match! Otherwise, I might not be able to validate your reference / citation and you would lose getting credit for that source!
In addition, I expect the following in your writing style this semester:
· Use subject headers for all papers – your reader appreciates and expects that level or organization to your work!
· No contractions & No abbreviations – if you are referring to the United States of America, write it out…do not write ‘US’ – this is not stellar academic writing.
· Line spacing is double with 0 point spacing.
· Only one citation credit allowed per sentence in this course.
· Indent the first line of each new paragraph five spaces.
· No extra blank lines inserted between sections – deliver a tight paper.
· No bullet points or alpha/numberic list – write formally in full sentences / paragraphs.
· Numbers one through nine within your paper should be written out
· Cover page and reference page required for ALL paper submissions
· Never use all capital letters
· Use authored references for your research to earn full points.
· Always include the full URL as to where you found your research online articles – never just the home page
· Avoid wikis, blogs, tweets, videos, dictionaries, and encyclopedias as outside references – use Masters-level sources like the Journal of Marketing or the Journal of International Business

In any form of business there is always a disagreement regardless of the country or the culture. In this paper, I will be discussing a disagreement that occurred between an American seller and a German buyer. The disagreement was brought about by a very minor issue. The German wanted pork liver but had not specified if it was to be female or male. And when he finally got his package from the American, he found that a few of the pieces were female. He wanted a refund of his money because he disposed of the female pork liver. The American did not understand why it was an issue where the pork had come from. And hence the disagreement (Usunier, 2000).
Question # 1
In this case, the country that would apply is the American law because the pork liver had come from an American seller. Insufficient answer – must be a full paragraph.
Question # 2
According to the American law, if the trial was tried in America the seller would have the best chances of winning in court. The same applies to German, if the trial was taken to German, the buyer would most likely win because he is in his country and the judge might sympathize with him, but this would be a challenge especially in determining who is at fault in this case. Regardless of these assumptions, the type of law that applies to the case is more crucial than the country in which it is tried.
Question # 3
0. In any legal disputes, the law that governs the seller’s home would be used.
0. Since the defendant who in this case is assumed to be the seller, the case will be tried in the United States. Likewise, if the defendant happens to be the buyer, the trial will take place in the country where all the exchange of goods and money took place.
0. The “customary merchantable quality” is in agreement with the standards of the seller’s home nation, unless it was stated otherwise in the contract.
Question # 4
Self-Reference Criterion can be seen through the entire reading. To begin, both the buyer and the seller assumed that their individual opinions were shared globally as well acceptable to everyone. Then after the realization that the other individuals’ opinion was correct, they both became outraged. Just to quote the American seller, he said, “if pork livers are palatable to Americans, they ought to be good enough for anyone”.

Assessing and comprehending cultural differences is important for the success of a company locally as well as internationally. If this is not taken into consideration, SFR can have negative impacts and be a potential threat to the other parties. Additionally, it is best to advise both parties to establish a clear and precise contract before they both sign. By doing these most disagreements that may arise will be reduced and everyone will be on the same page (Limited, 2009). This proves to be the easiest and safest way in which to handle business. In my opinion, I think the American seller should the German buyer the $1000 he is asking to avoid all the disagreements and also to avoid going to court for a trial. If the case was taken to trial, the seller has a risk of paying more in fine than the buyer is asking for. Such an incident might also ruin the reputation of the company.
