A Weblog?
The column to the right, is a news/editorial/comment column. It is a weblog, also know as a blog.

The weblog thing comes from www.blogger.com, which offers us a convenient way to manage the posting, administratively. You don't really need to know all of that, but we have included this explanation so that you won't be confused by the term "blog".

Another important topic here is that since the column includes editorials and comments, you can be sure that we are just exercising our free speech rights as guaranteed by the Constitution and as not yet abridged by a reactionary opportunistic vocal minority.

opinions, everybody's got one...
If you would like your opinion published here, forward it for consideration and editorial review to: info@delawoffice.com.
Or add a comment. Comments by: YACCS

We encourage the exchange of responsible ideas.

Copyright Battle Over Movie Clones

 
When I first saw the previews for this summer's big action/sci-fi movie, The Island, I thought that it looked like a retread of of the 1970's sci-fi classic, Logan's Run. But, apparently it is closer in many respects to the almost forgotten 1979 movie, The Clonus Horror. So close actually, that the producers of Clonus are suing the makers of The Island for copyright infringement.

I haven't seen either of the two movies in question (although the Mystery Science Theater 3000 version of Clonus sounds pretty familiar) but the producers of Clonus claim at 90 instances where the films are identical.

This should make for an interesting copyright infringement case if it ever makes its way to a courtroom.
