Memory of Shadows and the script books
 
I assume JMS didn't have the rights to include his unfilmed movie script in the B5 script books?

I wonder what the difference in publishing rights to scripts for the TV series and the commissioned movie script.

Depends on the contract. If the people who commissioned the script for TMOS weren't signatories of the WGA Minimum Basic Agreement, then the separation of rights clause may well not have been part of the contract.

I wonder if that script will ever be made public.

I base this on nothing whatsoever, but my hunch is it probably will not.

I can't know for sure, of course, but my thinking is that if it were going to be, it would have been by now.

And look what has just appeared on eBay...

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Babylon-5-U...YAAOSwCtJaUkOO

I wonder how this escaped to be out there?

Won't be paying stupid money for this.

No telling how it escaped into the wild but it's a given that there were at least afew floating around at the time the movie was optioned. I note that there's no full photo of the cover so no information as to what draft it might be.

This is at least the second such copy. One sold for (iirc) $750. When a second appeared I questioned the seller who said that the second would be the last one sold and I haven't noticed it selling the other times it's been listed.

I am pretty sure that listing has been circling for awhile. It seems like I've seen it several times in past few months. It seems like I have seen that listing at that price many times recently. I have no idea what that contributes to the discussion, but I just wanted to join in. I'd also like to point out that I would prefer that people stop buying Babylon 5 stuff on eBay. It just makes it more difficult for me. If everyone else would stop then sellers would be forced to dramatically reduce their prices and Looney could make some purchases. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. .... :guffaw: :guffaw: :guffaw: :guffaw: :guffaw:
