Writers orgs form #DisneyMustPay joint task force

Apr 29 2021

Half a dozen professional writers’ organizations have joined with the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America in forming a joint task to press the Walt Disney Company to ensure it pays all royalties owed to authors. The task force, #DisneyMustPay, contends that Disney is putting the onus on authors to prove they are owed money, rather than working with authors and author groups to proactively pay authors royalties that are due.

In addition to the SFWA, other organizations that are part of the task force are: the Authors Guild; Horror Writers Association; National Writers Union; Novelists, Inc.; Romance Writers of America; and Sisters In Crime. Four authors have also signed on: Neil Gaiman, Tess Gerritsen, Mary Robinette Kowal, and Chuck Wendig.
