    2008 Disney Annual Stockholder Meeting Comments

    Anybody else listening?

    And will Evelyn Davis be there?

    Right now, they just introduced the Board of Directors, and Roy Disney, director emeritus.

    Re: 2008 Disney Annual Stockholder Meeting Comments

    Already the first "break", due to Disney showing "copyrighted" prerecorded material....

    Too bad they can't do a full audio and VIDEO presentation, including showing the film clips....

    Yeah, I am listening in. Under The Sea is playing. This is my first meeting and I cannot vote as I only bought my shares a week ago. See my rant in my thread for how I feel about how they are getting paid.

    There should not be any reason they cannot do both. Windows media player alows it.. And thats what I am using. Its as if they don't want to pay for the bandwith.

    No, just as he is now talking about the "Disney Difference".

    But Shareholder meetings are a lot of "Rah Rah" stuff, until the end, when the stockholders get to ask questions. That is ALWAYS fun...

    I may not get to hear the questions. One of my supervisors doesn't seem to like me listening to it at work. I really do not want to have to wait till the 20th. This thing going to be a pod cast you think?

    I wonder if they will bring up the subject of possibly releasing SOTS on DVD? Hey, come on... it is, after all, the Year a million dreams.

    Yes, the Shareholders meeting will be available at the Disney Corporate website for a couple of weeks after the meeting in prerecording format. It takes a few hours, but the benefit, it is up in sections, and you can skip over the "breaks".

    I already had my rant on the salary thing. Its on page 2 of my thread. I cannot even vote this year so what was the point of ranting.

    Tim Winter asks.

    1. Why is Disney supporting the use of the "F" word lawsuit that allows it use on the public airways at any time.

    2. Disney defending Nudity on ABC (NYPD Blue issue)

    3. Ugly Betty getting more raunchy since it starts.

    Bob Iger responded that we have made mistakes, but we stand behind our actions.
