Writer's Strike T-Shirt

I feel passionately about the Writer's Strike, but I am not going to preach. I WILL support.

Here's the link to buy your own shirt (and they have special ones for the trek picket day).

When I visited a couple of the sites last night, the amount of revenue that LA had lost due to the strike was about $710,000,000

May you get fair pay for your work today.

I must confess that I do not know why are the writers striking. Do you?

The link will explain it better than I, but the most important reason for me is the internet. Publishers are selling stories and authors are not receiving royalties.

That I can understand. It is one thing for you to put a story on the internet for the enjoyment of your fans, but, is an entirely different when your publisher takes your idea, your hard work and puts it out there with nothing going back to you. I had not realized that is what is happening.

Actually, it's more like tv production companies streaming shows or doing pay per view and charging and not giving any residuals (royalties) to the writers...
