U.S. Movie Studios Kill ACTRA Deal

While the U.S. movie studios demand that Canada reform its copyright laws, the Canadian Press reports that they just killed a negotiated labour settlement that was to have provided new rights and compensation to Canadian performers.  Justice Minister Rob Nicholson might want to remind them of that the next time they come seeking support for legislative reform.

    The Canadian producers and actors had a deal they could jointly live with. But the MPAA has apparently decided – yet again – that we’re not an independent country in such matters. Unsurprising and annoying, as per usual. Your proposed counter-measures certainly sound, at the least, entertaining and at best, potentially helpful.
