GUEST,guest from NW BS: Can't wait for Fahrenheit 9/11 (39) RE: BS: Can't wait for Fahrenheit 9/11 22 Jun 04

"Moore has also taken a lot of heat from the author of Farhenheit 2001 because he did not ask permission to use the title of the film."

for those of you unfamiliar with copyright law (i guess this includes you dougR) you can't copyright titles. so moore needs noone's permission for his title. plus the fact that he's not actually using anyone's title. the word "fahrenheit" is not copywritable either. so neither his ass nor any other body part will be sued on that account. nor should it be.

"As we all know, an "Op-Ed piece" is a representation of the writer (filmmaker)'s point of view."

as most of us know, all content contains a "point-of-view". you may not realize it, doug, but even foxnews has editors who decide what stories are shown and how they are presented. those people have a point of view, even if they act like they are "objective reporters". they just don't admit it as moore does.

"Parts of the film have already been proven to be incorrect..."

please cite some relavant news articles (not "op-ed pieces" like william safire's) that illustrate your point like other responsible posters on mudcat do. altho i suspect you generally subscribe to the method of logic your hero GWB uses (it's true cuz i say it's true!!)
