Well, I am going to be obscure and just say that there are rumors going around about changes at Fuji. If true they are profound!

Every single McDonalds franchisee?

Actually McD's has many suppliers but a common gathering and distribution system. There's a lot more than one ranch providing them Kanga.. oops, horse.. oops again, oh yeah beef, that's what I meant.

My guess is that since Kodak isn't selling the production of film they are also not selling the trademark for or the formula and instructions on how to make Tri-X or Portra or ...

That puts Kodak in the position of being the only "ranch" capable of supplying the "beef".

No thanks, I'll pass on that bit of wishful business dreaming.

But if Kodak sells all the formulas, rights to manufacture, trademarks, etc... and the new company can say hire Ilford to make Tri-X and Fujifilm to make Portra if they please, then we're back closer to reality.

McDonald's is on death's door?

No. More like the cause of it.

These rumors are shocking PE. I mean REALLY shocking. It seems that the world of film is in a very very tumultuous time.

Not to continue to pull this thread way of topic but- Is there something else with Fuji besides them giving up motion picture film?....And I can only shoot film and hope the best for Kodak. This is all crazy. If you call the nice guys at Kodak Professional, they don't have a the slightest idea of what is happening or going to happen in terms of the sale.
