AOL to Movie Writers: You’re Fired, But We’d Love It If You Write for Free.
Seriously? According to CNET News, AOL had revenue of $596 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. Granted, that figure was "down 26 percent year over year," but you make over half a million dollars and you ask your writers to work for free?
Is it just me, or, the grand scheme of things, is such a request worse than those that come from startups?
