Watchmen, the movie which Fox studios is trying to stop you from seeing, ironically has an exclusive video sneak preview on Myspace. Ironic because Myspace is owned by Fox.
20th Century Fox was locked in a copyright battle with Warner Bros. over the movie “Watchmen.” A federal court judge handed his judgement into the mater down on Christmas eve.
The Judge ruled in favor of Fox which came as a surprise to pretty much everyone, including Fox, who abandoned the project about a decade ago.
The decision came in an order which stated that: “Fox owns a copyright interest consisting of, at the very least, the right to distribute the Watchmen motion picture,” the ruling read.
The Judge also wrote that he will issue a more detailed order soon. The judge advised the studios to focus on reaching a settlement or appealing the decision. “The parties may wish to turn their efforts from preparing for trial to negotiating a resolution of this dispute or positioning the case for review,” he wrote.
Warner Brothers hasn’t commented on the ruling except to say that it has not backed away from its March 6 release date, of the Watchmen.
So enjoy the Watchmen sneak peek, before Fox figures out that they can take it down.
