Is that part of the WGA's separation of rights? If not, should it be? Especially now that writers can self-publish for kindle so easily?
It is part of the MBA. It's one of the explicitly enumerated rights within separated rights. The writer retains the right to publish the screenplay in book form, which surely includes publishing it as a PDF on a web site.
