Watchmen Fans Protest Fox’s Lawsuit

Fox attempts to stop Watchmen movie's releaseEven though the much-anticipated film’s premiere is not scheduled until March 6, true Watchmen fans are not taking any chances with Fox’s plans to completely prevent the release.

ComicBookMovie.com has organized a petition in hopes that the people over at Fox change their minds about touching the classic graphic novel’s film adaptation. One fan named Wyatt Barlup is even planning to picket the Fox lots with like-minded, passionate comrades.

Federal Judge Gary Allen Feess has determined that Fox held the rights to Alan Moore’s novel through a 1991 claim. “When you have copyright infringement, there are some damages you never recover,” a source close to the case revealed.

Talk about pride! Then again, the people over at Fox are probably just bitter about how great that other Warner Bros. comic book movie is doing at the box office.
