Description

Last week, a lawsuit was launched to disrupt the Maker Studios-Disney deal that was valued at nearly $1 billion. Now, Relativity Media, backed by Ron Burkle, is set to upend the deal, as he attempts to swipe the online video content network away from Disney. Elsewhere, major corporate players have already backed M A candidates. Given the way Disney's attempt to control more of the web is playing out, we may see deals in the space sooner rather than later.
