Well, if and when soaps do go exclusively to Internet broadcast, THEN I will agree with you.

CBS, the network with the the most soaps and the two highest rated soaps have been repurposing their entire soap lineup online. Apparently, the writers don't get any of the profrit from the online distribution of those shows, so it's a big deal to them. They might exclusively be online, but they are watched by a significant amount of people online, yet the networks get all the ad revenue and the writers get nothing.
