[dvd-discuss] Dastar v 20th Century Fox

Good news... The Supremes have recently struck a blow against large 
media groups who might have been planning to use trademarks to thwart 
the exploitaion of newly public domain material. The case Dastar Corp. 
v. 20th Century Fox Film Corp., 02-428, concerned the lifting of 
material from a WWII documentary that had lapsed into the Public 
Domain, and reincorporation into a new video which did not cite the 
original film.
