Driven by the then-recent contract between Viacom and the creators of South Park one of the critical issues for the negotiations was residuals for " new media ", or compensation for delivery channels such as Internet downloads, IPTVstreamingsmart phone programming, straight-to-Internet content, and other "on-demand" online distribution methods, along with video on demand on cable and satellite television. The first is "electronic sell-through" also known as "Internet sales" or "digital sell-through".

Martin, but I am hoping that this will get back to him. I am going to respond to some of the things Mr. Martin said to try and explain my reasoning.

Let me begin with the basics: Who owns the Hugo Awards? You know, looking back, I am probably partly to blame for some of the misconceptions that seem to exist on this point.
Thousands of fans vote for the Hugos most years, but until recently only hundreds ever bothered to nominate. Truth is, the Hugo Awards belong to worldcon. The World Science Fiction Convention. Martin, that is exactly one of the reasons I started this campaign.
They were portrayed as the awards that represented the best of all of fandom. I was called a liar. I too was nominated for the Campbell for Best New Writer. As a young, new writer, who had grown up reading the great ones, I was super excited by this incredible honor.
See, I was born around when you got your Campbell nomination. I was even dumb enough to think that I might have a chance. I had already read works from two of the other nominees and I knew that they were remarkable story tellers.
I had read Wells and Beukes and knew the quality of their work was excellent. Within a few days of the nominations being announced I not only knew that I was going to lose, I knew that I was going to be last place. Only it had absolutely nothing to do with my writing, but rather, who I was, and what I was.
I know you remember when you were starting out, Mr. I know I was. So I went out on the internet and started searching my name, trying to find out what the buzz was for the Campbell nominees. You know what I found? Did you know he did lobbying for gun rights!
Oh no, there are two Mormons up for the Campbell?
I bet Larry Correia hates women and gays. Hardly any of them had actually read my books yet.Here it is: the list. As in years past, Writer’s Digest has assembled a list of literary agents who are building their client rosters and are open to working with new writers.
