And so it starts again: The Writers Guild of America (WGA) is planning to file for arbitration against the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers (AMPTP), alleging that the producers are not complying with the new contract that was negotiated after a prolonged strike during the winter of 2007-08. The full WGA statement is here. Details after the jump.

That 17 day clause explains the new Fox and Sci-Fi channel content getting pushed off of Hulu issue I previously mentioned. Now I know why. If they leave it up they have to pay the writers so they take it down before the time limit.
