Studios Sue Companies That Sanitize DVDs
LOS ANGELES –– Hollywood studios have fired back at video rental stores and technology companies that allow consumers to watch films that have been altered to remove nudity, violence and foul language.

Eight major studios, which own the copyrights to the films, filed a lawsuit Friday in federal court in Denver, backing legal action by movie directors who claim the editors violate copyright laws.

The studios also allege the companies violate trademark law when they rent or sell an altered movie in the original packaging.

In August, CleanFlicks of Colorado, a dealer associated with Pleasant Grove, Utah-based CleanFlicks, filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Denver asking the court to rule that what they do – rent and sell edited movies – is legal. ...

I agree wholeheartedly with Peter's comment.

Why would anyone - especially a Christian - want to put money into the filth-monger's hands? According to the article, even when a movie is "sanitized" the payment is still made to the movie company.

And why would the folks involved in "sanitizing" the movies want to be exposed to all the filth while supposedly "cleansing" them in the first place?

I sadly suspect that those who would buy or sell this service (or who would buy/sell the movies which are supposed to be sanitized) are interested in living as close to the world as they can - instead of living holy lives close to Christ.

This is NOT a service for the Lord's people. It is certinly not "family friendly" as the article suggests.

Does the Bible forbid Christians from watching movies? No, we don't need to pretend that it does. But why would anyone with a testimony for Christ want to watch so much of what passes as entertainment today - sanitized or not?

I would strongly recommend John Wagner's series of messages on Sanctification to anyone interested in strenghtening their conviction in this matter. The series can be found here on SermonAudio under Covenant Free Presbyterian Church.

movies, like most visual artwork is a form of idol making.
these people who take out the dirt and violence are only helping the movie people to sell more product and make more money. In the process many people will be effected by the other sinful themes in them. I can't think of a sit-com that doesn't base it's comedy on lying and the problems caused by it. These things are portrayed as normal when they are an abomination and sinful. Even the "Jesus" video is teaching Roman Catholic error and causing people to think of a good looking man when we talk about Christ instead of His saving works. "and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him." Isaiah 53: 2b
