The fact that networks can just cancel projects as "tax write-offs" makes me believe there needs to be some kind of law that stipulates networks are required to relinquish the rights to said project back to the creator (pitches in particular).
After seeing the mass cancellations of cartoons before they even air their first episode on Netflix and WBD, I firmly believe that the creators, not the networks/service, should own the rights to their shows because these companies cancel these projects and just sit on the rights. I hate situations like Nickelodeon and Constant Payne where the former does absolutely nothing with the latter but still owns it.
In the comment section of Vailskibum94's recent video on the cancellation of "Driftwood", I saw someone suggest that the CN higher-ups (who are just as pissed about this as we are) campaign to oust David Zaslav just like Roy E. Disney, the nephew of Walt Disney, did to Michael Eisner. Needless to say, I wish it was possible to like a comment more than once.
