The article reflects on the impact of the strike called by the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists (ACTRA), on actors in the U.S. The strike was a result of the feud between ACTRA and the Canadian Film and Television Production Association (CFTPA) on the issue of paying artists residuals for content created for the Web or cellular phones. ACTRA agreed to a new Independent Production Agreement on February 21, 2007.
