  • WGA And Studios: Is Strike Getting Nasty Now? Thursday, 15 Nov 2007 | 11:01 AM ET

    A video made by the Writers Guild is circulating the web. As of now it's been seen 111,000 times on Youtube. It dramatically argues that the studios are cashing in on digital distribution and the writers aren't getting a penny. It starts with Disney CEO Bob Iger saying that Disney has about $1.5 billion in digital revenues.
