Both sides say the central issue is compensation for programs, movies and other content streamed or downloaded over the Internet.
Writers want a framework for residual payments now, citing what they considered raw deals in the 1980s involving what ultimately became lucrative home-video and DVD markets.
Producers say it's too soon to know how much money they can make on the Web or even which formats will work. They're offering limited proposals that would end in three years and be renegotiated.
The alliance, for instance, is offering a flat $250 payment for a year's use of an hourlong TV show on the Web. Writers are balking, citing the $20,000-plus residual that writers now earn for a single network rerun of a TV episode.
The guild wants residuals to be based upon a percentage of a distributor's gross receipts, which the alliance said is an unworkable and unacceptable formula.
Regarding reality and animation writers, the alliance insists there was an agreement to take those issues off the bargaining table, which the guild denies.
