However, despite this good news, licensing segment net sales declined to $58.1 million in Q3 compared to $82.2 million in Q3 2007, reflecting the decreases from Spider-man LP, Marvel's Spider-man feature film merchandising joint venture and $16.8 million in the 2007 period from unusually high audit settlements recorded predominantly in studio licensing.
