Rename Hollywood Accounting?

Reasons to rename:

  • The "Hollywood X" trope naming convention indicates "common oversimplifications or misrepresentations in fiction, usually of something which is very complicated or diverse in Real Life". Hollywood Accounting is "Real Life practices used by movie studios to avoid paying royalties where they are due."
  • Adding a qualifier like "practices" or "tricks" will allow us to keep the Real Life term without confusion with the rest of the "Hollywood X"

Reasons to not rename:

  • This is what it's called in Real Life.
