June 25, 2002: Warner Bros. Sued Over Superman: The Movie DVDThe Hollywood Reporter has published an article stating that legal action has been take out against Warner Bros. in relation to their releasing the "special edition" of "Superman: The Movie" on DVD. Here's an excerpt from the article titled "DVD extras spur 'Superman' suit against Warners"...
DVD extras may be a boon for consumers, but they could prove a legal headache for Warner Bros., which is being sued over additional footage and "making of" material that appeared when the 1978 feature "Superman: The Movie" and its two sequels were released on video and DVD last year. Pueblo Film Licensing Ltd., a U.K.-based motion picture licenser and distributor that controls the copyright to the three "Superman" films originally produced by Alexander Salkind, filed suit Monday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, charging Warner Bros. and Warner Home Video with copyright infringement and misappropriation. The suit, filed by the firm of Greenberg, Glusker, Fields, Claman, Matchtinger & Kinsella, alleges that Warner Bros. re-edited and altered "Superman: The Movie" by using additional footage not included in the original theatrical release and that on the DVD "Superman: The Movie Expanded Edition," eight of the 44 chapters include re-edited or altered footage.
