RYAN LESLIE FORCED TO KEEP HIS 1 MILLION DOLLAR WORD R&B singer and super producer Ryan Leslie has learned an expensive letter about internet promises. Leslie went on YouTube and offered 1 million dollars to anyone who could find and bring him his laptop that went missing while he was in Germany. The man who found it and returned it to Leslie sued him for not paying up. Now a jury has ordered Ryan to pay auto repair shop owner Armin Augstein the $1 million reward. Leslie's tried several arguments in court, including the argument that it wasn't the laptop he wanted but the songs contained on it, which came back ruined... So the offer was not for the "property" but for the "intellectual property." The judge disputed this by saying that Leslie and his team were negligent in their handling of the hard drive after it was returned. As a result, the judge instructed a jury to assume the data was there when it was turned over.
