Video: Comparing Royalties to Residuals

Posted on November 14, 2007

In this video, author and vlogger John Green explains the writers' strike by comparing the way authors are paid to the way tv writers are paid. In one part of the video, Green compares royalties in book publishing to residual payments in television writing. It is an interesting comparison and it makes it clear that Hollywood writers aren't always getting their fair share of the money. John Green is the author of An Abundance of Katherines.

His video is titled, "You Can't Scare Me. I'm Stickin' to the Union."
