AFTRA postpones AMPTP negotiations

It is likely that to convince AFTRA to delay the start of its negotiations SAG would have had to assure them that its talks with the Producers are likely to produce positive results.  This suggests that the folks running the talks have backed off some of the early militant rhetoric and are starting to make a deal.  Keep in mind, however, that that simply means a greater liklihood that the Guild will go along with the pattern set by the DGA and WGA.  That means some movement into new media but little or no progress on DVD revenues.
