I resisted the urge to cuss in the title of this post, I don’t think I’ll resist that urge in the rest of the post, you’ve been warned. You see, Fox is seeking an injunction against Warner to stop the release of Watchmen. According a recent ruling Fox MIGHT not have given away all their rights to Watchmen in 1991, they MAY still have distribution rights. Then Fox had this to say.
Â Via Comicbook Resources “Of course we are concerned about the fans; however, any disappointment from the core fans should not be directed toward Fox. What we are doing is seeking to enforce our distribution rights to ‘Watchmen.’ Legal copyright ownership should not just be swept under the rug and ignored.”
This is stupid and childish. “Don’t blame us they did it.” Good PR there Fox. Fox seems to not understand how little the average person cares about their fucking distribution rights. Of course Fox doesn’t care about the average person, they care about the bottom line, which they always assume has nothing to do with the average person.
We’ll see how this plays out, I’m guessing we’ll at least see a delay in the release. Which is really shitty.
