Clean Flicks

NPR's Ina Jaffe reports that a trademark and copyright battle is brewing between 16 Hollywood film directors and a company called Clean Flicks. Clean Flicks has 64 stores in Utah, Idaho, Colorado and other states, offering video and DVD rentals for people who want their movies with the sex and violence edited out. The filmmakers say companies like Clean Flicks have no right to change their work. Now Clean Flicks of Colorado has filed a pre-emptive lawsuit, claiming that what it does is perfectly legal.
