From the Emerald City Comic Con DC panel:

The first question jumped into the recent controversy over the death of Lian Harper, the young daughter of Speedy who was recently killed in "Cry for Justice," when a female fan expressed her displeasure with the "fridging" of the character:

James Robinson: "That decision [was] a controversial and one that I know has been greeted with some displeasure by some people... I'm sorry if it upset people. In all honesty, they wanted to kill Speedy too, and I said no, so give me some credit for that."

Ian Sattler: "I'm happy it upset people because it means that the story had some weight and emotion."

To be fair, this seems to work with television drama. The difference is that TV audiences are huge, and viewers don't pay a cost up front when they're happy. I think TV can afford to lose more fans than comics can. :/

Not always. Killing off Maid Marian caused the demise of the Robin hood show.
