US Guilds sign mobisodes agreement

The Writers Guild of America, west (WGAw) and the Writers Guild of America, East (WGAE) have reached a landmark agreement with Touchstone Television covering the writing of mobisodes for ABC's television series Lost, creating a framework for future industry mobile-content and other new technology agreements.

The agreement was reached after WGA members working on Lost insisted that proposed mobisodes be guild-covered. Their stance was supported by members of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the Directors Guild of America (DGA), and the three talent guilds coordinated negotiations with Touchstone. While the agreement covers mobisodes the network had ordered to supplement the Lost series, the new deal provides a flexible template for future negotiations, when the Companies and content creators address issues related to emerging technological platforms.
