Fox Networks' Cable Channels May Go Dark on DirecTV

Fox Cable Networks, Direct TV Bad news for Sons of Anarchy fans: FX and the rest of Fox Networks' cable channels might be going dark for DirecTV subscribers, according to Entertainment Weekly. Fox said DirecTV sent the company a proposal on Thursday that said unless Fox agrees to their terms, DirecTV's 19 million subscribers will lose access to more than two dozen Fox cable channels including FX, National Geographic, and several regional sports networks beginning Nov. 1. Fox goes dark for Cablevision customers"They have given us no chance to respond before taking an unnecessarily aggressive posture and going public, a Fox spokesperson said. " It is disappointing that they have chosen bad faith tactics over meaningful negotiation. We have proposed to keep the Fox Networks on DirecTV for the same price, and on the same terms as they are currently carried while we attempt to work out a fair agreement. Unfortunately, DirecTV has decided that unless they get their way, they are going to pull the plug on their customers November 1." But according to DirecTV News Corp., which owns Fox Networks, is seeking a 40 percent increase in subscriber fees. "That's simply unfair andunwarranted," DirecTV CEO Mike White said. "We hope to resolve this situation before any action is taken, but we will do what's necessary to protect our customers from excessive and unwarranted fee increases."

Julian Barnes Wins Man Booker Prize, Major Sales Boost Expected

Author Julian Barnes took home Britain's Man Booker Prize for fiction on Tuesday, Reuters reports, after being on the shortlist three previous times. The 65-year-old writer was on the list in 1984 for Flaubert's Parrot, England, England in 1998 and in 2005 for Arthur and George. Barnes won for The Sense of an Ending, a 150-page book that was described as a novella by one reviewer. PHOTOS: 10 Biggest Book-to-Big Screen Adaptations of the Last 25 Years During Barnes' acceptance speech, he referenced Jorge Luis Borges, an author who never won the Nobel Prize for literature. "Borges, when asked, as he continually was, why he had never won the Nobel Prize, always used to reply that 'In Sweden there was a small cottage industry solely devoted to not giving Borges the Nobel Prize,' " he said, before adding later, "I wondered whether there wasn't perhaps some similar sister organization operating over here. So I am as much relieved as I am delighted to receive the 2011 Booker Prize." PHOTOS: Steven Spielberg's 'The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn' The win is expected to boost book sales for Barnes, whose book centers on an ordinary man Tony who learns that his memories are not as reliable as he once thought. Former British spy chief Stella Rimington, who oversaw the judges' panel this year, said of Barnes' book, "We thought that it was a book which, though short, was incredibly concentrated, and crammed into this very short space a great deal of information you don't get out of a first reading." She added, "It's one of those these books, a very readable book, if I may use that word, but readable not only once but twice and even three times." While Barnes' book may have been on the shorter side, it wasn't the shortest. Offshore, a 132-page book, by Penelope Fitzgerald holds that particular honor. Barnes is also the author of Metroland and played himself in Bridget Jones's Diary. Related Topics International

Entertainment Coalition Creative America Ramping Up Efforts to Battle Piracy (Video)

More than 60,000 people -- many of them entertainment industry professionals -- have sent messages to their Congressman in the past week to support passage of the Protect IP Act, which is currently stalled in the U.S. Senate.our editor recommends CBS Hit With Major Lawsuit For Contributing To Piracy (Exclusive)'Big Fat Hollow Victory' for DISH in Satellite TV Piracy Battle'Hurt Locker' producer files massive antipiracy lawsuitFrench Assembly, Senate OK anti-piracy law The outpouring of support for the bill to stop foreign-based websites that illegally distribute copyrighted content such as American movies and TV shows is part of a grass-roots campaign being launched this week by Creative America, a coalition formed by the major studios, networks, labor unions and others to battle piracy of intellectual property. "Since Creative America was launched, it has produced a growing community of people deeply concerned about the effects that content theft is having on American jobs and creativity," said Mike Nugent, the Washington, D.C.-based executive director of Creative America. "Once people understand the scope and enormity of this problem, they want to take action." Not everyone supports Creative America or the Protect IP Act, including big technology companies like Google, Yahoo and TiVo, but they do agree there is a problem that needs solving. How big a problem? According to Creative America, these foreign websites generate about 146 million visits per day and 53 billion visits per year involving illegal distribution of more than 500,000 movies each day worldwide. Nugent announced that in addition to the original members of the group, which was formed in July -- including AFTRA, CBS, DGA, IATSE, SAG, Fox, Viacom, Disney and Warner Bros. -- it has now added the AFL-CIO, the Association of Talent Agents, the Copyright Alliance, Deluxe Entertainment Services Group Inc., FilmL.A., the National Association of Theatre Owners, the Producers Guild of America and the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society. The group also has launched a redesigned website at to provide info and a way to lobby Congress for the Protect IP Act and other legislation. More importantly, beginning Tuesday, many of the members will send representatives to studio commissaries, TV and movie sets. For instance, AFTRA spokesman Christopher de Haan said representatives will "be going to show sets, broadcast stations and other places, handing out information and having conversations." They will also be giving away branded materials like pens, T-shirts and one-sheets supporting the effort. AFTRA has already sent communications to their members and staff and soon will be posting videos supporting the effort. SAG has also posted a video on YouTube that features actor Clark Gregg talking about the campaign. There is no cost to sign up, but Creative America hopes these people will become their ambassadors in the battle against piracy at home and abroad. "This is an intensive campaign to bring our message to the entertainment community, its workers, vendors and others," Nugent said. "It will be grass-roots organizing in the old-fashioned way as well as online. We're approaching this as a political campaign, a kind of get-out-the-vote campaign, to make our voices heard in Washington." However, Nugent balks at being called a political organization and denies that they are a lobbying group. He says it just makes a button available on its website so people can reach out to Congress, and their member companies all lobby, but it does not. Nugent said the group has hired two kinds of outside consultants -- one that specializes in causes and mobilizing people for social action and the other who are experts in how to use social media to spread the message, as he puts it, "so it can grow virally through Facebook, Twitter, e-mail and all the engines of social media." Since the effort was launched, the group, working with the Motion Picture Association of America and others, has worked to shut down websites that illegally distributed copyrighted content. What they have not been able to do is stop content that comes from web servers based in China, Europe or elsewhere outside the reach of American law. That is the point of Protect IP legislation. As Nugent explains it, once a site is identified, the group would go to the U.S. Justice Department, or to a judge, to seek a court order labeling it as an illegal site. That court order can then be used it to force payment processors like PayPal and Visa to stop processing their credit cards and payments. Next, the group will use the court order to go to advertising companies that serve ads online and stop them from advertising those sites or funneling money to them from ads. Then in the most controversial aspect of the effort, the bill would allow the copyright holders to go to companies like Time Warner and Comcast that supply Internet service to consumers and demand they block access to those illegal sites. "It's a bad thing because generally the security experts do not want anyone to tap into your Internet connection to block or manipulate your access to any site that you want to go to," said Markham Erickson, a Washington lawyer who is executive director of the Open Internet Coalition, which lists among its members Google, Amazon, eBay, Yahoo, Expedia, Bloomberg, TiVo, Facebook, HSN and even Sony Electronics -- although Sony Pictures Entertainment is a member of the Creative America coalition supporting the opposing viewpoint. "We're not opposed to legislation in addressing the problem," Erickson said. "But we have serious concerns about the bill that has passed the Senate Judiciary Committee and is now to be considered by the full Senate." Erickson said the existing Digital Millennium Copyright Act already covers the same territory and can take care most instances of illegal material being distributed. Nugent said that is true, but that the DMCA acts after the fact and takes a long time to use to get satisfaction. The new bill would be more of preventive measure. At present the Protect IP act is stalled because of opposition from Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., who has said that while he shares the goals of the proposed act, "I am not willing to muzzle speech and stifle innovation and economic growth to achieve this objective." Creative America said a similar bill will be introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives in a matter of days. Nugent insisted that there is no first amendment issue and that it would not stall innovation. "There is no privacy right that allows you access to an illegal website," he said. "We won't know what any individual is doing. We're not going to view their habits. We won't know if they go to a certain site. All were doing is blocking the identifying information from this other site." Erickson said that the technology problems this bill would create could be dealt with if the backers had worked with Internet engineers and companies. He said the Internet service providers don't believe they should be forced into the role of policeman on the web, which may not even be possible with new security software being rolled out to deal with potential hacking. Nugent insisted that they are not making these private companies their police force. "They are just being asked to honor a court order to stop supporting the distribution of stolen content," Nugent said. "They already do it with porn. They stop malicious spam. They would block someone extorting money. They do it when it suits their network interests, so they should be able to do it here as well." Related Topics SAG Google Clark Gregg Yahoo MPAA

Twit Wit: The 5 Best Tweets About Real Steel and Ides of March

comments: 1 || add yours You might’ve realized it by now, but Real Steel is a ridiculous premise for a movie. So ridiculous it worked, in fact. Twitter blew up this weekend with comments about Hugh Jackman’s and the sweet science of robo-jousting, and Ryan Gosling’s effectiveness in The Ides of March. We tally the best five tweets after the jump. 5. Ryan Seacrest has a very strong, near-flirtatious plug for his friend Hugh’s new movie.
