Are you SERIOUS? One of the most anticipated movies for next year and they're trying to pull the plug on it? That's absolutely ridiculous. As someone who is named after a Watchmen character, I'm doubly angry. If the movie doesn't show up in theaters I'll be spewing endless streams of hate-fire.

I'm reading some of the replies on that website and one in particular struck me as really funny (if you've seen the Watchmen trailer).

Wow... That's pretty messed up.

They're just thinking about their wallets and not the views that everyone says they always care so much about.

Ah, copyright...

For anyone really outraged, it's a great time to join the EFF.

This kind of thing won't stop until legislators (and Joe Six-pack) get their head on straight about copyright and what it's for.

I absolutely guarantee you that 20th Century Fox is not the only studio that would do this. They ALL would. If it were Disney being allegedly infringed upon, they would probably also have the executives of the opposing studio beheaded and place their heads on pikes around Magic Mountain. Disney is The Vileness.

Ah, I love White Wolf versus Underworld. White Wolf's case revovled around such iron clad arguements as;

In our games, the Vampires move fast. In Underworld, their Vampires move fast.
