    So, first of all, I'd rather hear Dave tell stories than just do straight standup at this point. He's just an amazing storyteller.

    And even though I knew that he was headed toward pointing out that white people in suits with contracts are doing the same shyt, just "professional," that the older comedian or the three-card monte dudes are doing, using power and leverage to steal your shyt, it was still compelling to watch him pull those stories together to make his point, though.

    I also think that if a new form of media comes out and media rights can be sold through it, it should be legally necessary for the rights holders to negotiate with the creators.

    This is deeper than that. A lot of artists in various sections of the entertainment industry take these deals because they need the money, and are desperate to get put on. They are not thinking about the potential of their material being used decades later, and they don’t get paid. And the reality is, if they don’t sign, there are other people with the same amount of talent who ARE willing to sign. That is the point of capitalism. Make as much money as possible for yourself or your company, and if someone else gets screwed, so what.

    :yeshrug:

    It’s cutthroat, but it is what it is.

    Look at Tyler Perry. He owns ALL his stuff. From his first film, he paid for it, directed it, and produced it. I used to laugh at him for naming everything “Tyler Perry’s”, but I get it now.

    The messed up thing is that the $50M they were offering him was HIS money! He had made them hundreds of millions off the the show, didn't pay Chappelle, but then tried to get him to sign
    The worst part about it is this:

    Expenses
    $1M - Production Costs
    $500k - Paid to Chappelle
    $200k - Other Payroll

    $1.7M - Capital Expenditure

    Income
    $150M - Ad Revenue
    $50M - Merchandising
    $300M - DVD Revenue (Dave gets a share)

    $500M - Total Revenue

    $498M - Profit


    Now what do they do with the money?
    First, they declare the DVD Revenue to be a "windfall" and use a clause to cap his earnings from the DVD.

    $5M - Dave's Royalties from the DVD after clause (should have been 9 figures).

    $493M - Profit goes to Comedy Central (Doesn't Include P&D and Marketing)


    Summary

    $1.7M - Paid by Comedy Central to do the show
    $500M - Generated off the hard work of Dave Chappelle and his team
    $5.5M - Paid to Dave, this is the adjusted payment once "windfall" clause was used.
    $493M - Pocket by Comedy Central

    Comedy Central pockets $493M and has the nerve to tell Dave:

    :win:CC: Hey, great job on those first two seasons, check this out we'll give you $50M for all your hard work but you'll owe us two more seasons, a tour, and a 1 hour stand up special.



    :wtf: Dave: Hold up, my show generated $500M off the first two seasons, I had the highest selling DVD of all time, you guys pocket $493M in PROFIT after stiffing me out of my DVD sales, and then want to offer me $50M of my own money but only if I give you two more seasons, a tour, and an hour special..

    fukk THAT!

    Powerful stuff, however there are some misconception with some of what he saying. I believe he signed a bad contract and wants to renegotiable by using a public relations campaign to help him. His main takeaway was he got fukked because of his experience and lack of knowledge. Dave has an agent and lawyer representing him, his main issue is no one told him that the show was going to be successful and that he was giving up ownership of the IP.

    An example of this is George Lucas and the Star Wars franchise. He basically kept ownership of the film by finding partners and was able to sell lucasflims to Disney for 4 billion dollars in 2012.

    I think that is where the current age differs from the Diddy era. Yes, you can still get jerked in a legal contract. It can be legal and still be exploitative relative to someone's current/future market market value.

    Let's be reality fukk netflix, the only reason they took it down is because of the stand up deal they have with Dave. If they were down they wouldn't have added chappelle show in the first place.
