A researching Snarkling asks:
"I found the following link on Newsarama (a comics and related fanboy stuff related website) . Since I write romance, I decided to have a look. It seems, though, that this is a bad deal: You send them a pitch, they ask for a script, and they see if they can get your story made as a comic book. In the meantime, though, they have the right to produce your story idea as a movie or TV series and not only do they not have to pay you, they don't even have to give you a credit. They give you $250 when they buy your idea and that's it. Am I reading that right? Can you see any advantage to submitting to them?"
My Grandmother always used to say: If it smells like a scam, it's probably a scam. I've never heard of them, but they may or may not be legit. But here's what worries AgentC: There is much language in the contract there that says basically, if you think we stole your idea, or think that something we do looks awfully like your own idea, then well, tough. Oh and you can't sue us. It's gotta be binding arbitration. Wha? Not that AgentC is especially litigious, but that seems to be a whole lotta squawking about whose idea is whose.
Run little Snarkling. Run away from the strange man in the van who says he's works for a "modeling agency." Go with your gut here.
