The Director’s Guild of America is likely to sign a contract with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers of America soon. The Directors’s decision, while a presumably smaller group than the writers, may influence the Writers’ Guild to cut a deal shortly. Details about the new contract are sketch, but Director’s Guild spokesmen say that they did successfully get the studios to recognize their rights to revenue from Internet sales.

Of course, management is saying it is a good deal, too, so who knows? Maybe the directors caved in and sold out? All we know is this: forests (and lumber) are disappearing. There must be a forest’s worth of wood out there just to make the lumber that they are stapling their placards, too. We love a good strike as much as the next entertainment web-site, but, even if they used certified lumber, there has to be a better use for that wood than propping up signs.
