Can the employees from The Office use the documentary in legal situations?
I don't mean being allowed to film a situation like The Deposition.
In the episode Broke, Michael negotiates the buy-out of TMPC to Dunder Mifflin. They verbally agree to all the terms, but during the meeting nobody writes anything down, no notes are kept.
What's to stop Dunder Mifflin from changing the agreement?
David argued against the terms, because it would cost DM millions of dollars.
Even if Michael, Ryan, and Pam claimed the agreement was changed, why would anybody believe them? No evidence exists, Ryan isn't trusted by corporate, which leaves Micheal and Pam, whom DM could claim are two disgruntled employees attempting to take advantage of DM.
Presumably off screen, contracts were written, and Michael, Ryan, and Pam signed them, and they agreed terms were met. So we can safely assume that DM didn't try to back out.
Is there any canon or official source that can confirm if the footage of the agreement was used to support Michael, Ryan, and Pam, or if the footage can be used in legal situations?
