I'd guess that someone who publicly gave away the rights to everyone in the world doesn't want to have to hire a lawyer to go over the agreement that one writer wants to "make" him sign. Nor does he come across as the type to take payment from one person/company/whatever or he'd have done that for big money from a studio already.
