    I prefer The Princess Bride with swords, not lightsabers. [​IMG]

    What about that Dove company that was making edited-for-content tapes for Blockbuster a while back? The studios need to get them, too...

    I would have liked to submitted "Pink Flamingos" to one of these places and seen what they ended up with. [​IMG]

    MovieMask will likely live on, per the GameGenie descision since it does NOT alter the original content on the product
    However, the rest of them are going down [​IMG] I can't wait [​IMG]

    Imagine the Clean Flick version of Scarface. It would have its heart ripped out. And it would be a lot shorter too. [​IMG]
    I don't know how they MADE MONEY. Who wants to see a butched version of The Godfather? This is a more open and shut case than that fat guy who sued McDonalds.

    It's the studios themselves who chop off most of films: 30% of the sides, in some cases even more, on several DVD releases. More than 1/3rd of a whole movie! Even if it's not from the playing length - it's still a real shame! And only for a certain type of "family pleasure" and to boost the sales!

    It's more than just cutting off a certain member from The Full Monty.

    The studios' reasons for taking action against this is probably driven by money, whereas we are against the fundamental basis for these things...nevertheless, it's a good thing.

    Sure, the airlines and the TV stations (edited for time and/or content), but this isn't any different from pan and scan. Maybe if the studios win they'll be shooting themselves in the foot?

    The studios provide all "clean" edits to TV and the airlines. In face my mother would LOVE a TV cut of Shakespeare in Love to show her class. They won't let her show the whole thing for obvious reasons
