Naming rights for "HP Pavilion"

Does anyone know how long the contract is for?


I notice most naming rights with arenas usually last 10 years... so does that mean in 2 years the possibility is there that the name could change unless HP works something out?

HP Pavilion is one of the best play-on-words arena names out there

Tickets will be free but every square inch of the place, players, and fans will be covered in ads for auto insurance.

By then, the ticket scanners will also take your picture, send it to Google for facial recognition and place electronic ads based on average section targeting information.
