Joss Whedon and the studios

Joss Whedon had a big success with Dr. Horrible's Net-only release, and now he's in clinch with the studios about sharing Internet profits.
"“For [the studios] not to offer the creative community a percentage of what they make — they say, “oh, it’s too difficult” and “we’re not going to make any money” — is disingenuous to the point of criminality. What they’re making is pure profit. For them to shut out the people who actually created the content is something that should be looked into by a federal investigatory committee.”"

Personally I wish Joss Whedon would do more to keep the strong comedy aspect he had going in Buffy. I loved that.
