NEW UPDATE, 5:44pm EST, December 25: Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez has just posted another blog on her site called NBC sends me a cease and desist letter on Xmas. It has been a wild Christmas in the Latino social media world today.
Here is the opening of the post:
Twas the night before Christmas, and…I got a cease and desist letter from lawyers at NBC via an email sent to my agent at CAA, demanding that I stop blogging and Facebooking (but, oddly, no demand to stop Tweeting) about Luisa Leschin, Lynnette Ramirez and Ann Lopez destroying my novel in their racist and sexist bastardization – er, “adaptation” – of it.
Later in the post, she reveals the details of the deal she made with Ann Lopez:
I remember wondering, in that moment, how much respect Ann must have for me, the lowly writer she paid a mere $5,000 to option my book rights for 12 months, if she had such overt contempt for network executives.
A lot of details are being presented in these posts.
