You knew that, at some point, Kristine Kathryn Rusch would share thoughts on the #DisneyMustPay movement.
And she did, with a post that discusses Alan Dean Foster’s situation and those of the much-less-known writers who are also fighting for their royalties, along with references to the Scarlett Johansson suit, too.
While there have been developments in the latter since Rusch posted and there will almost certainly be more in the former, the post remains and should remain relevant.
That’s because the contract setup at the crux of the Disney-writer conflict is still in effect.
Essentially, there’s a standard license, which almost every company uses … and then there are traditional publishing’s licenses.
Head to Rusch’s blog to learn why this licensing distinction matters and what she encourages you to do.
