ABSTRACT
The article reports on the persistent unforeseen negotiations of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) and Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) in the U.S. Accordingly, the deal finalized agreement has been delayed by the issue regarding actor's consent requirement on online movie clips. In addition, the author notes that the hesitation of AFTRA is caused by AMPTP's prior deal with Screen Actors Guild (SAG).
