Yet Another Reason to Not Watch The Watchmen

When Rupert Murdoch wants a piece of the action…well, what else is there to say?

Fox argues it acquired motion picture rights to the “Watchmen” graphic novel in the last 1980s, and that even though it relinquished certain rights to the material in 1991 it held onto the right to distribute the first movie.

“We will be asking the court to enforce Fox’s copyright interests in “The Watchmen” and enjoin the release of the Warner Brothers film and any related ‘Watchmen’ media that violate our copyright interests in that property,” said Fox spokesman Gregg Brilliant.

Which do ya’ll think is more discouraging?  Listening to two multimedia superconglomerates fight over and refer to Watchmen as “media”/”property”? Or the high irony that Fox’s spokesperson’s last name is “Brilliant”?

*Sigh*
