According to a Twitter update today, Curto appears to be completely unemployed. But no, he hasn't worked for RS for a couple of years now. I don't know if they paid the bills on any of his trips, like to TF or not, but he wasn't on the regular payroll as far as I know. And honestly, would you really sign a no compete contract to work for a hobby website? There aren't any trade secrets in reporting news.
I could see, maybe, a nondisclosure agreement with Hasbro because he's sometimes been in the know on some stuff, but what's he going to take if he left RS for here, for example? I could see a contract where any work he produced for RS was property of RS, so he wouldn't be able to take his photo archive pics somewhere else, but not being able to just go and create new work or post new news? I don't know, maybe some people are paranoid enough to think that way...still, these websites aren't what I'd call big business.
The photo archives over there....way behind, and have been. And now, they're suspiciously Canadian in flavor. Plus they're not linked back to the checklists anymore. I don't even know how to actually get into the Movie Heroes photo archive, I haven't found a direct link to it from any of the menus or other sections. I guess you have to wait for a new update? Or track down the old one? Whatever. Place is falling apart over there.
