Harlan Ellison -- Pay the Writer

Ellison is a force to be reckoned with. Sometimes I think he's wrong, sometimes I think he's right. This time, he is spot on. I could not agree more. Although he's talking about writers and Warner Brothers, this is applicable to cartooning.

The video runs about 3 1/2 minutes, and is part of a larger documentary about the man titled Dreams with Sharp Teeth.

One of the best clips ever, if I do say so myself. Speaking as a professional who routinely is (a) asked to do stuff for free or (b) asked to give the publisher (Web or print) all rights, I say no to clients if they won't let me strike out the offending lines in a contract. This is happening more and more.

Let me know if you ever want to forget all this and start up the MIKE & MARK DRYWALL BUSINESS!
