Based on your comment about 'Ford selling cars to Franchise Dealers' and they selling the vehicles to customers, then since I purchased the machine as a Franchisee, then I can sell it to someone else?
The point I am making, is that after I "purchase" the machine there is a transfer of ownership and interest in the machine. Filta's FA says "Filta will pay you the fair market used equipment value" for the machine. Why should Filta pay for a machine if they have interest or ownership in? Based on this quote from their FA, they no longer have controlling interest, if they are willing to pay fair market value.
So, is the machine theirs or mine?
