For almost five months, the Writers Guild of America went on strike and halted work in Hollywood due to a lack of agreements with producers and studios in the television and film industry. Eventually, the parties reached an agreement, bringing the strike to an end.

As mentioned, the strike began when television and film studio workers refused the screenwriters' demands to increase the minimum wage for writers and regulate the use of artificial intelligence. Now, the final contract is expected to be signed between the two parties soon, and it includes improved employment terms for screenwriters, salary compensation, and new regulations regarding the use of artificial intelligence in writing.

Screenwriters will be able to use artificial intelligence as long as they wish to do so and receive approval from the production company, but they will not be obligated to use it. Additionally, it was decided that artificial intelligence will not be able to write or reproduce literary material that was written in the past, and it will not be considered original material.

Regarding salaries, screenwriters will receive higher compensation than in the past for movies and series that have reached various streaming services, but they will not be entitled to full transparency regarding viewership data.

If you're waiting for your favorite TV shows and movies to return to the screen soon, you'll have to wait a bit longer because the actors' union has been on strike since last July. They have yet to reach an agreement regarding improving their salaries and the use of the actors' digital catalog through artificial intelligence.
