We're not talking here about the unfortunate Mars Needs Moms, but this:
... Disney disclosed late Tuesday that the operating loss at its interactive business, which makes video games and runs Disney-branded websites, had more than doubled to $115 million in the second quarter through April 2. That highlights just how much of a black hole the operation has become. ...
Diz Co. has been in the video game biz for a while now. Some years back, TAG made a run at organizing the gaming unit. Sadly, we didn't get major traction, but then as now, Disney's digital subsidiary was encountering bumps on the road to profitability. And a number of Disney employees -- all holding term employment contracts -- were getting let go. ("Cost cutting" is a never-ending job.)
When people complained to us about their personal service agreements being truncated, TAG was pleased to provide legal advice, and we helped a sizable number of vid game workers get larger payouts from the Mouse.
This happened long ago in the glorious nineties, when Disney Feature Animation and Disney Television Animation were near their pinnacles. History might not repeat itself, but for Disney Interactive, it seems to be a rhyming couplet.
