Grandpa always said, "You can't fix stupid."

I smelled the coffee burning on P2P in 2011. I have heard from a guy that heard from another guy that some guy he knows makes a lot of money on (whichever one) by paying the $5,000 annual super-elite-really-good member fee.

Bull poopie, I say.

So, would this suit be a blueprint for the remaining P2P sites?

If so, how do we as colleagues construct this?

So, here's the deal. There is a rule at SAG-AFTRA that members cannot be charged a fee for access to auditions. P2Ps have been abusing this rule for years and the union is just now enforcing it. If you are union, you can reach out to the legal department and suggest they also include the vo P2Ps who supply union vo auditions. FYI-this is already in play. But you can add your name for support.

I'm not sure what you would want these companies to do for non-union talent as there are no rules or bylaws for non-union talent.
