SAG Members Call for Antitrust Probe

Mar 25, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Some Screen Actors Guild members, mostly members of the Membership First faction, are calling on the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate alleged antitrust practices of the entertainment conglomerates, Daily Variety reports. “We are drawing attention to the fact that the handful of vertically integrated corporations who finance, distribute and exhibit motion picture and video productions have gained unchecked control over the entertainment industry,” SAG member Scott Wilson tells Variety. Spokesmen for SAG and the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers didn’t comment, the trade paper says.

  1. There have always been control issues in Hollywood. It is the very nature of the media business…always high profiles for companies and individuals.
    SAG needs to concentrate on finalizing contracts, and taking the stigma off the industry that, at some moment, all work could grind to a halt.
    Right now “WORKING” for everyone is key to a better tomorrow.
