    B. DreamWorks ended talks on what could have been a $1 billion acquisition deal by NBC Universal during disagreements about price and creative control, DreamWorks co-founder David Geffen said. The deal would have given Universal control of DreamWorks’ live action film studio, including its 60-title library, as well as pipeline to new films by the ever-popular Spielberg. DreamWorks SKG, which includes Steven Spielberg, and Jeffrey Katzenberg among its founders, had granted NBC Universal an exclusive two-month negotiating period that was set to expire on Friday. Both sides previously expressed optimism about the deal that fell apart. Geffen declined to elaborate on what creative issues were under discussion. Negotiations with Universal could eventually resume, but DreamWorks is now free to consider other offers.
    C. Marsh & McLennan, the world’s largest insurance broker, said 70,000 clients, including 90 percent of its biggest customers, agreed to participate in an $850 million settlement of bid-rigging accusations, reached in January with New York Attorney General Eliot L. Spitzer. The participants will exhaust $750 million of the settlement money and must waive their right to sue to get the funds. About 140,000 clients nationawide could have opted in to accept the restitution, company spokesman Barbara Perlmutter said.
    D. Taser International, the world’s biggest maker of stun guns, said the Securities and Exchange Commission upgraded its inquiry into the company to an investigation and expanded the probe to look at possible stock manipulation and whether individuals outside the company were able to obtain material nonpublic information.
    The SEC said in January it was probing Taser's safety claims for its stun guns and the booking of a year-end order. Expanding that inquiry into a formal investigation gives  the SEC subpoena power. Taser President Thomas  Smith said the company has not received a subpoena and has cooperated with the SEC.
