No...it may come as a surprise, but I don't get a direct cut in any way of the
sales of videotapes (for whatever reason, Hollywood doesn't consider that
merchandising, so I don't get it that way). The only thing I get -- thanks to
a wonderfully short-sighted WGA contract covering cassettes -- is the standard
writer's royalty, which comes after the distributer gets his money back...which
means you get zip for the most part.
