Writers Strike

Funny clip from the writers of the Colbert Report on the viewpoint of the studio execs.

In general I’m very sympathetic with the views of the writers here. If the pay structure for their jobs is supposed to involve getting paid when the studios make more money off a given work, the Internet and all other media should be included. Now, I’ve heard some suggestions that the writers want some form of fixed payments which seems like a bad idea since it would constrain how the programming can be used in this modern environment. But it seems easy to solve that by doing it as a percentage of revenue and then it should apply to anything.
