    In the film, Ed Helms gets a tattoo that resembles the exact same one that Mike Tyson has on his face.  Anyways, the guy who gave Mike Tyson that tattoo owns the copyright to said design, and wants to sue Warner Bros. for copyright infringement.

    Warner Bros. has been actively trying to reach a settlement with the man before the issue ever has to go to court, but he refuses, and wants to take the issue to court. 

    Warner Bros. wouldn't comment further, but they did say they would digitally alter the tattoo for the film's dvd/vhs/blu-ray release if a settlement cannot be reached between the two parties; which would clear them of any and all copyright infringement issues that the complaintent may have.  Anyways, what are you're thoughts on this?

    Sounds like the guy wants a "public" court date to draw more attention to his work. In Hollywood, that is the best Advertisement. A quite settlement does not give free advertisement.

    Warner Brothers are wrong, they have materially profited from the Tattoo, no matter how small a part in the movie it was. The guy who owns the Tattoo is entitled to some of that if it is used.

    However if WB offered him a settlement and he refused either WB offered something too small, or this guy is being too greedy.

    it is debatable how much difference the tattoo made to the film,  but, it was used in at least one of the TV campaigns, which means it could be considered one of the film 'highlights'.
