Magical Realism

[ #4475 ]
Dear Log,

A lawsuit filed in Manhattan accuses Columbia Pictures, producers of the new Spiderman movie, of digitally manipulating shots of Times Square to block out an advert for Samsung, arch-rivals of Sony, which owns Columbia.

[...]"Our client feels that they have a property right, they own the signage, and for someone else to come along and change the image is inappropriate when the scene is otherwise depicted as how it really is," Sherwood's lawyer, Anthony Costantini, said yesterday.

His concerns over the film's realism did not extend to the fact that the lead character gleans magical powers after being bitten by a radioactive spider. Both companies refused to comment.
