Writers Strike Almost Over?


Posted February 11, 2008 - By Mike D'Alonzo

You know that writers strike we keep talking about? Well, odds are pretty good it will end as soon as tomorrow, as both sides have tentatively agreed on a deal that will stop the four-month holdout and get our entertainment community back to work. The contract will be voted on tomorrow, and if the writers follow the recommendation of the union, they will ratify.

The terms of the new contract include some relief on internet distribution, in which the writers will receive $1200 per year for one-hour webcasts for the first two years, and then 2% of revenue after that. So, that there's a percentage at all is good news, but did we really have to cost the city almost a billion dollars to get 2% of something that will be three years old by the time it starts earning?
