I haven't figured out how to post "interesting links of the day". I don't like posting them here, and clearly I haven't been motivated enough to setup a del.icio.us feed from there to a sidebar here. Hmn.

Judge says cutting profanity (etc) out of movies is illegal. According to the judge, it is up to the moviemakers to decide who their film was appropriate for and tailor it accordingly. "Whether these films should be edited in a manner that would make them acceptable to more of the public playing on a DVD in a home environment is more than merely a matter of marketing; it is a question of what audience the copyright owner wants to reach," he wrote in his ruling. "What is protected are the creator's rights to protect its creation in the form in which it was created.". (Yay).
