Hi Steve,

You do get lied to. You never know what's going to happen in
post-production.

I think though that there is enough interest in the phenomenon
by the media and the production companies to allow the community
as a whole to apply some pressure and enforce a few guidelines.

If everyone insisted on some do's and don'ts and demanded
contracts - down the road we might see some improvements. But
since the phenomenon is scattered all over the landscape and
there are so many 'experts' that will be very hard to control.
