SO WHAT'S THIS WRITERS' STRIKE ALL ABOUT?

>


Last night a new cleaned-up, DVD version of The Beatles' Help! was screened for a select audience of Hollywood movers and shakers. At the last minute, a call went out from Olivia Harrison's office explaining that in deference to the striking workers and their families the screening was being moved from Paramount Studios, which is being picketed, to a private venue.

Olivia Harrison and the Beatles camp understands the significance of this strike. It isn't hard to understand. The have a website and a really good video that will make you a strike expert in 2 minutes. Give it a look:

How did they clean up "Help"? Cover up Eleanor Bron's cleavage?

Speaking of the strike, I'm starting to jonze for my Colbert fix. In lieu of that, though, I just saw this hilarious fake Giuliani ad (I hope it's fake) that seems to be mocking Hillary and the licenses, but I think actually mocks Giuliani: Abrad2345 video
LMAO.

I am so thrilled with Harrison's widow. That was a great move.

Right on, Writers Guild!
With a play for new media residuals, they are right at the center of what all writers are facing, including journalists, some of whom (New York Times) have been less than sympathetic. Look at how the newspapers tried to deny free-lancers a share of profits when they reprinted their work on line, now slightly limited since Tasini vs New York Times. According to the National Writers Union (see http://www.nwu.org/nwu/?cmd=showPage&page_id=1.2.13.3), who had brought the suit, Newspapers had been “selling freelance-authored material to electronic databases such as Nexis/Lexis without any additional payment or purchase of electronic rights from the original authors. They claim[ed], without justification, that by purchasing First North American Serial Rights they automatically gain[ed] electronic republication rights. Tasini et al. v. The New York Times et al. established that they [were]violating the copyrights of writers.”
That case and this strike are profoundly important for bloggers and other commentators who may want to sell their work from time to time.
Hang in there!
