Don't look for SEC filings on Yahoo! or Nasdaq web sites
A dispute between Edgar Online Inc. and Vickers Stock Research Corp. has resulted in no updated SEC filings on the Yahoo! and Nasdaq web sites, according to a story in the Fairfield County Business Journal.Â Â
Alexander Soule wrote, “Edgar Online has sued Vickers Stock Research Corp. of Glen Cove, N.Y., claiming it is suffering â€œirreparable damageâ€? as a result of Vickers cutting the spigot. Edgar Online has asked a judge to issue a preliminary injunction resuming service. Â Â
“Vickers, a subsidiary of Argus Research Group, compiles reports of corporate investor holdings from documents on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, such as SEC forms 3, 4, 144 and 13D. Â “Edgar Online obtains a real-time feed of SEC filings, then deposits the information in relational databases to support complex searches by its 20,000-plus customers, which are roughly split between two primary services. It charges $1,200 for an annual subscription to its mainstay ‘Edgar Online Pro’ service, and $220 for its trimmed-down consumer version. Â Â
“Vickers alleges Edgar Online took Vickersâ€™ information, combined it with information from other sources, and sold it to customers in violation of a master services agreement between the two companies. Vickers also claims it was not allowed access to Edgar Online facilities to remove software and destroy content, and is demanding damages.”Â Â Â
