Update: judge rules Sony had right to use Faulkner quote

“A federal judge in Mississippi today ruled Sony Pictures Classics had the right to use a nine-word quote from William Faulkner’s Requiem For A Nun in Woody Allen’s 2011 film.” [Deadline.com, earlier]


  • Why do websites (like deadline.com) watermark public court documents? :/

  • I take it the Faulkner estate has so much money that they don’t
    mind wasting it.

  • @the prez98: It’s so they can get identification points whenever anyone borrows the document from their site. In return for the convenience of not sending you searching for the court documents, they get their little bit of fame.
