Affirmed.
Court properly dismissed company's declaratory judgment action which sought to declare gaming company's exclusive placement agreement with restaurant invalid under Video Gaming Act. Agreement may be assigned to another terminal operator until terminal operator becomes licensed under the Act. As neither terminal operator nor restaurant was licensed under the Act when signing placement agreement, the agreement is not a "use agreement." Agreement is not invalid, but cannot be enforced under the Act until the parties are licensed.(CARTER and O'BRIEN, concurring.)
