ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the contract negotiation between the Directors Guild of America (DGA) and the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers (AMPTP) during the 100-day writers strike. President of DGA Michael Apted says that he's proud of the guild's contract, which has been used as a foundation for other industry unions and guilds. DGA told AMPTP that it had to partner with the guild rather than start up a business plan based on the Internet without DGA.
