Tattoo Erasure

Reuters reports that Warner Brothers has said in court papers in the Hangover II tattoo litigation that if the case is not resolved by the time the movie comes out on DVD, "the studio will digitally alter the controversial mark on [actor Ed] Helms' face."

Cristina del Rivero wonders about the strategy:  "Is it me or did the defendant just spend a quiver in its arrow in that litigation by voluntarily removing it from the DVD?"
