Re: City on the Edge Redux

I'm with Ellison all the way on matters like this. If you want something for nothing, plenty of amateurs are willing to give it to you, but don't expect people who do it for a living to just roll over and let you have their work for free.

Re: City on the Edge Redux

Ellison in his own words:
If [director J.J.] Abrams — with whom I’m currently on strike — or anyone else at Paramount or elsewhere, thinks they’re going to use my creations — whether the City, the Guardians, Sister Edith Keeler or any elements created by Harlan Ellison … they had damned well better lose the unilateral arrogance, get in touch with me or my agent Marty Shapiro and be prepared to pay for the privilege of mining the lode I own.
This was back when the rumors hit the net about Abrams using the Guardian, which turned out to be false. Note that the article I linked to reports incorrectly that this was happening.

Star Trek cost a reported $150 million; Star Trek Into Darkness cost a reported $190 million. If Bad Robot wanted to use a few of Ellison's ideas in the next movie, they could certainly afford to pay him for their use.

You know they had the Guardian of Forever in TAS.
There must be some way of negotiating with Ellison or legally the characters belong to Star Trek.
He has said that DC Fontana was granted "special permission", IIRC. Similarly the novels by AC Crispin. (And Barbara Hambly, and PAD?)

Unless they ponied up hefty figure up front, I don't see him making easy for them if they approached him.
