  1. I’ve had stock options...but they were agreed as...

    I’ve had stock options...but they were agreed as part of contract, not an optional thank thank years after I moved on.

    That’s the norm I think. (And I do mean norm...I know there are...
  2. Of course, bonus, awards, rewards happen in all...

    Of course, bonus, awards, rewards happen in all sorts of industries. But rarely at a really significant level if there’s no contractual obligation, and very rarely if person no longer works for...
  3. Is there really any industry where a fixed price...

    Is there really any industry where a fixed price job leads to an unexpected subsequent success where a non contractual “wow”payment would normally be made?

    (I can not think of any. Certainly in...

    I’m fine (got a small case of lockdown boredom...but guess that’s afflicting large majority of UK...and overall lucky it’s not had any impact on job.)

    You’re certainly right about UK name/ title...

    1/ Lets see what Coinbiter says about use of first name/ surname in general UK usage. (Guess we can all agree that it is a tangent to main debate, albeit an interesting tangent.)

    2/ I find your...

    Good to see you posting again. (Probably just me being inattentive, or just looking at “wrong” topics but not seen any of your posts for a goodly time.)

    I really only mentioned Boris specifically...

    Loads of people in UK call Boris Johnson, Boris...and nobody seriously thinks it’s suggesting that the people doing it are trying to imply being good friends. Or by itself insulting. I think it’s...

    I do. Jeez knows how he avoided punitive damages when that came to court, his lawyers must be brilliant.
  9. I agree with most of what you said (in the full...

    I agree with most of what you said (in the full post).

    But I really don’t understand why a “mix and match” strategy (i.e. doing some Marvel/ DC work and some indie work) isn’t a perfectly good...
  10. Really?? Do you regard calling some one by...

    Really??

    Do you regard calling some one by their first name by itself rude? Or really pretending close acquaintance??

    In UK It’s undoubtedly regarded as far ruder to refer to some one by...
  11. I must admit i am baffled why you are so...

    I must admit i am baffled why you are so concerned on some one being referred to by first name, when the overall context makes it absolutely clear who is being referred to. (It just feels like a...
  12. In general, I think I’ve just become more...

    In general, I think I’ve just become more pragmatic (or cynical) as I get older.

    I usually find myself agreeing with you on what is unfair or fair...but often coming at problems from point of...
  13. Not being generous is unfair...I agree. But...

    Not being generous is unfair...I agree.

    But let me pose a hypothetical question to you...If one of your kids was a talented writer, and Disney offered him a substantial amount of money for a work...

    That would surely mean she had an acute mental problem...for she surely had absolutely nothing to gain by deliberately killing some one she had never met, and an enormous amount to lose.

    To be...

    Most scientists Iíve heard talk about that admit that any answer to that is guesswork now..but a fair number guess that actually mixing vaccines may actually be better on balance that taking same one...

    I think it is at least debatable whether there is a strong moral case.

    Ed B signed a contract knowing he would get a rate of pay that he was happy with, got a significant readership (that would...

    It was Robert Morales (I think), donít know of any contract disputes he had with Marvel (his run on Captain America ended early, but thought that was down to fan reaction to run.)

    Ed B would find...

    Creator rights are something I must admit I yo yo on. Certainly think most of the golden and silver age creators were ruthlessly and unfairly treated...along with many others in all sorts of...

    Dialogue played a part in characterisation. (And I think it fair to say that it’s practically certain that Stan did better dialogue than his rivals at DC most of the time.)

    But you’re surely not...

    In UK not super rare. In UK law spending it if you donít have reasonable grounds for believing itís yours is potentially a criminal offence ( ďtaking false creditĒ under one of the crime acts).

    Itís pretty well established by past cases (at least in UK law, and Iíd guess in US) that itís a crime to try to keep money transferred into your account in error.

    In this case given the amount...
  22. I agree with a lot of what you say. Certainly...

    I agree with a lot of what you say. Certainly putting the dialogue in was no piece of cake. Undoubtedly Stan did a lot more than Bob Kane did!

    But I do demur from your view that it was Stan who...

    That was very similar to my experience...except after 24 hours took paracetamol and felt substantially better very quickly.

    I afterwards found out that a fair number of nurses are advising taking...

    It’s incredibly hard to distinguish myth and fact in regards to Stan the man.

    I would assume that even his most loyal admirer would accept that he was a talented self publicist who had a healthy...

    Lol. Wasn’t Stan effectively the guy who invented “The Marvel Method”?

    And rather than just “doing nothing to disabuse people of the notion that he created everything himself” wasn’t he a...
