The NBA's possible July return at Disney World, explained
"I wanted to talk about the NBA the NBA was one of the first big sports leagues two to call off their season because of coronavirus I I remember practically not called off postponed host suspended suspended yeah yeah that's that's what it's all about yes they didn't actually wants to call off although people kept expecting they're going to call it off so people are getting creative I mean folks want not only fans and players want sports going running again up and running again but so do the owners and the network executives at stations like ESPN there if something like two point six billion dollars they make a year because of the broadcast NBA game so so they're thirsty for basketball to come back again and ESPN is owned by the Disney corporation and Disney has floated this idea that what if we get the NBA V. I. K. I assume the entirety of the NBA down to the ESPN wide world of sports complex that's near Orlando in Florida and we kind of set up a big old bubble and we have everyone there we play all the games there at no fans obviously but we have is some version of a basketball season yeah there's it's a huge campus down there it's the two hundred fifty six acres I thinking twenty four thousand hotel rooms all empty yeah right so it's an opportunity they feel like they can bring everyone the whole league down there play a bunch of games without fans at B. multiple games in a day clean and disinfect between keep the players as isolated they can't have the otherwise other other than when they're on the court and in very very close proximity right and trading a lot of sweat they seem to end testing every day that sort of thing like they can create sort of a model for the league and my guess is that if they can do this isolate everyone from the trainers to the coaches to the to the other people who work in the team along with the players over the course of of a few games my guess is that there's probably going to have to be a decision about whether or not we look at the the season standings as they were when the season shut down and decide and pick the top teams is those the playoff teams and roll into some playoffs immediately or play out another month of the season they're ready really at the place where we would be in the playoffs right now I guess that that's probably an option it'll be interesting to see if they can do it because I think the other leagues we watching very very closely yeah but if the if the they can pull this off yeah I think that I don't know what you do about families you know like I don't have their you're just yeah you're gonna be without either however are not going to have your family with you they want to go but I mean these players are used to traveling and being on the road tonight especially being on the road for an entire month although one the plants that you can be you can go from city to city and never actually make that return trip home and so it conceivably this is not going to be and they're used to living out of hotel rooms in the stand they are if anything can travel efficiency efficiently it's a professional sports team they're very very good at getting yeah all of their stuff up and moved into a hotel they understand that environment pretty well about getting down to the gym it's an interesting idea if they can pull it off safely more power to all right going to be weird to listen to broadcast games if you've never attended a any basketball practice I mean they all sound kind of the same with no fans there are a lot of squeaking weeks we had a lot of gallon and it's going to be interesting if they broadcast that and don't censor out what we will be here I I would wait which is as blue as it gets back in any sports league now wait but you can't hear over the crowd noise so I had to get pretty interesting what what the NBA and ESPN to get inside to do about that end of things I am really warming up to the idea of no fans and and according to according to data so so was everybody else really you know early on in this in this whole thing people they they pulled folks ask them the questions like would you be interested in watching sports without any fans there and and most people by and large were like no that's too weird I don't know if I'm into that and it's just it's been a couple months I think we're kind of warming up to the idea that stuff's just gonna be different these days and more more people are warming to the idea that like yeah and if I can if they can do it safely and I can get my in this case basketball fix then why not and then you get these little little pearls of fun unexpected consequences like hearing everything that said on the court or why not head to the I mean if this coincides with the opening of let's just say you're from Milwaukee in the opening of the sports pubs there why not my Cup a bunch of sports pubs you know get it so there's not that white noise so you can't hear the individual profanity of course will happen whenever anyone knows miked on national television right it always has but you can do something about that it may be a slight delay and actually use that and add that into the television feed you know for either side or whatever however you wanted whoever you declare because you will have to declare a home team right in every game the right standard and so maybe you might get the home team's bars or something like that right away the fans in those places or even people in their houses I don't know why don't you get

"Right. That's to me. Like, I'm I'm do you not want to cure, breast cancer? Think yogurt, but it's like. It's like someone who's in. I'm interested in feminism is a political movement beyond a consumer decision beyond. Like, you know, it's like I'm interested in buying mental ISM beyond. Do you use a reusable grocery bag or not? And it offends me that that this is what I was talking about the problems in levels thing. Yes. I totally. I totally agree. When when Starbucks is like, oh, we're going to give you like a like, a shitty paper straw, donate. One cent of our coffee to like rebuild the Amazon rainforest it offends me. Because I know that what's what's happened. So here's here's why bothers me because they're what they're selling to you. There's this idea, and I don't know in here because she could tell me what this is from. But there's this idea in philosophy called interpassed passivity. And it's the idea that like you can have your anti-capitalism performed for you as part of the transaction. So when you when you go to Starbucks euro aware, if you're a woke ally like myself, you're aware that, but when you purchase the coffee, you're you're implicating, you're being implicated in this very unjust. And. Racist series of decisions to go all the way back to the oppressed. Farmers make like slave wages who I presume who pick the coffee means. I don't actually know anything about it. I just someone's getting dicta over when I get a coffee at Starbucks. Let alone the baristas who make it. Now, you know that you're complicit in this system in your your your profiting from it and giving money to it when you buy the coffee, so what does Starbucks? Do. They say, oh, we're going to give one sent from your purchase to so. And so caused to the poor kids or rebuild the rainforest. And so what they're doing is. They're selling you the relief from the anxiety of your participation in the transaction as part of the same transaction. It's all one transaction that you create the problem and solve it all with one purchase just by giving the one sent to them. And it's it's the most devious form of capitalism. Likewise, I think people know that something is kind of kind of sad bucked up about these these Goliath companies that Disney owns like every movie, I see is produced by the Disney corporation, and there's only seven media companies, and there's only a few. The big movies. And they have these recycled IP that we're going to be forced to like, and we're gonna see a fucking blitzkrieg of ads for captain marvel until I give a shit about it and submit and see it it all feels bad. But then I'm also it's part of the marketing that there's gonna be a big sexist controversy of Kuna woman, be a superhero. And there's going to be people who get mad at people who get mad at the who are mad, and we're gonna have to go through this whole song and dance. And it's all in the it's all the design. It's all part of the pageantry of rolling out the movie brands, so that I go see it. And the now, I'm not only am I consuming the movie, and I don't even have to feel bad about participating in the Disney mega corporation and all the people who are exploited and all of the cultural hegemony and everything because I'm actually all the cartoon mice force to wear gloves. I'm actually I'm actually being woke right? I'm actually, yeah. Yeah. I see politics seeing the whole thing is disgusting to me what to wear the ribbon. There's but there's so many. Because like, yeah. Oh, cool. I kept real good. But yeah, who who made them movie who wrote them who is making billions of dollars on the movie, not the actors in it, not the grip on it. So I have no problem with seeing. Captain marvel and I, but yeah, it's gross ver- folks to be like, yeah. This is my form of Monismanien. This is a political action. I am taking, but I still want them to exist. They're still I don't want them to be perceived as better just because we've got someone with long hair is a superhero. But I I don't know. Like why why what's the problem with the would you what's the solution?.

You had explicitly say that very profitable to copyright it. But then it wasn't changed until late nineteen seventy six and then globally with the burn commend generally believe Ninety-Eight put until then like the idea of having things copyrighted by default would just alien. Right. I mean, one of the things that you know, obviously, you can blow nine shows on this subject. One of the things that happened is what you're talking about which was automatic copyright, which meant it stopped. Being a case of I have this book it really matters to me. And so I'm going to copyright it. Because I plan to sell it and make a living off it we moved to wear anything created with the aerobically, copyright, -able and automatically copy writ written. And so it suddenly became an it continues to be administrative nightmare. I mean, it's like literally every breath you take. So that's one of the problems is that it caused this massive huge administrative issue. And the other one was that, you know, we we changed. What was you know, if you talked to anybody about copyright, right? Usually within the first five minutes, people go down on one side or another in terms of what is what is copyrights role? And is it meant to encourage people to create more by giving them a limit. It'd monopoly on the works. Or is it an out of you know, out of fashion idea, and everything we create should be perpetually the the the ownership of whoever thinks of it or acts like they thought of it. I just go in these directions. Right. And the fact is is like we from shinned under a system of limited copyright for many years. We have stretched it. And now we are in a situation where stuff is finally entering the public sphere. Again, people will remix it get get off it create create things from it. And we will benefit we will experience it. So you know, there's a lot to enjoy out there. And there's thousands and thousands of items that are going to become available over the course of the next, you know, few months, it's literally because every organization is rusty at making stuff publicly, you know, publicly available. Right. Since this happened. But like as you said, there are thousands of new works of all types coming coming into the public domain. And a lot of them is stuff. I was looking through some of this. And a lot of stuff that you would never have heard of old weird one act plays and burlesque old research papers things like that. But also some stuff that you would have heard of their well known authors. Just a list of few Agatha Christie Winston Churchill Khalil Gibran D H Lawrence Huxley Edith. Wharton PG Wodehouse Virginia Woolf all these people who are important like quote, unquote, important people in our in our literature in our literary canon have these these works that are now freely sharable, legally, sharable and. It's gonna be fascinating seeing what people do with them. In fact, there is there is an event coming up that that we got wind of that's happening. Thanks to tech dirt and collaborating with with some other, folks. And it's a game jam and you're involved with us in some capacity. Aren't you? I wanted to judge is my I can't wait to see. What happens basically, the idea's games created using either partially or completely from works from nineteen Twenty-three. So make a game this month, and it'll be judged and will have different categories of winner. I I look forward to trying these out, and this is this is really fun. I mean, the gaming covers you can you can do a computer game. You can do another sort of game board game card game. What have you?

"We can't have it. And it was a scary thing to do for two twenty five year olds to say to the Walt Disney corporation, but it worked, but I never forgot how the dragged that out miserably. And while you're looking at a piece of paper that says, okay, I officially have twelve weeks to do this. My contract says I have twelve weeks everything that they're going to do is designed to make you work for eight hundred weeks. So you'd think like own a contract where you're you have a job. And then you have a time line where you have to do the job by that. They the person hire you one force that they specifically don't want to enforce it. The studio executive is being paid for every week of work. They're not liking to be paid for like, oh, you know, makes a movies, and then we'll pay you eventually know that they're they're being paid for. Their work. And as writers we're not paid for our work in the same way it because we're still working under the assumption that our work is this draft for handing them they will try to extend that time endlessly. So our goal. This conversation is talk about starting the clock. And so that you once it started the clock. You know, the clock is running, and then you can actually stop the clock when you've turned into thing. So let's talk about commencement because commencement is that sense. Like, okay. It's okay to go ahead and start writing your script. Now, the people who might tell you that. It's okay to start writing script up, but you should necessarily believe them are your agent your manager, the producer the juniors to do executive the great. You're good. We all agree. You can go start writing the thing when you should really probably start writing the thing is when you're Turney who's negotiating this says, we're good. So I would trust that person. I would also trust with you get a check in your hand that is a sign that you are truly commenced. Check it short of that. Checking your hand you. Kinda don't really know. If you signed along from agreement that's up good sign too. That check in your hand is really what means that? They they believe you're starting writing so start writing. I don't think I've ever waited for the check in hand. But I have certainly waited for the certificate of authorship, which is a pretty decent stand in for a long form. And it's something that if if he's studio is seemingly dragging their heels and saying we're not gonna actually pay you until you signed this long form, but please start writing. That's when your lawyer should be asking, I it of authorship. And what that does is it basically just establishes the most important fact for all parties involved, they're hiring, you they're paying you. You're you're doing work for hire. So that they have the basic minimum required to be able to cut you check. Yeah. Yeah. So what I've taken a doing over the past couple of years is when I'm starting on the project, I will send an Email to the producers to the executives to everybody who's involved in say like, okay is I'm starting writing relegated started writing and on. I anticipate handing this in at about this date and just just having some sort of virtual paper trails has like this is when I think these are the boundaries. I think are on this project is helpful because it gets the sense of like, oh, we can't actually expect him to be turning to censor that because that's not realistic. And we can't be dragging him on a long time after this because there is some limit to it. If you don't define your edges a little bit. They're going to keep trying to get more out of you. That's what they will. Do is say listen, we need to get this as soon as possible. Everybody wants everything soon as possible everything's crisis. Everything's crisis. But what they really want and this cuts directly to producers..
