Should studio moguls seek Nick Counter’s head?

It’s surprising in this age of Wall Street activism that movie studio shareholders don’t call for the resignation of AMPTP negotiator Nick Counter, given his obstinate, hard-line tactics that prompted the Writers Guild strike.

Clearly, studios and their stockholders lose the most from the petty resistance to creating an equitable distribution of profits. Counter’s name-calling of his adversaries as “strike-happy and unprofessional” recalls the old-fashioned studio practices of nickel-and-diming on issues that really matter, while profligately wasting resources at the expense of stockholders, and of course the viewing public.

If Counter doesn’t step aside and substitute a clear-headed negotiating team to resolve the pending items, stockholders should demand his prompt termination.
