Re: Writers Guild Strikes Over DVD and Download Money
How they resolve this mess, might also become a HUGE precedence... simply because DVD and Download royalties are going to become increasingly important to everyone who contributes to these creative productions.
Meanwhile, some media "experts" are already misleading the public, by summarizing that these writers want to "double the DVD rate".
But their DVD rate is currently 3/10s of one cent on a dollar... and the writers are asking to change that to 6/10s of one cent on a dollar (for discs that cost less than $1 to manufacture and sell for between $11 – $22.)
I wonder why "the suits" feel that this is an unreasonable request?
And does this mean that the upcoming season of LOST, is going to be replaced by reruns of Desperate Housewives? WTF?
