I feel it's shame that the human body and sex have been so cheapened by the movies for the so-called sake of "artistic expression." And, the gratuitous violence in so many movies and games gives an appearance that giving vent to anger, hatred, vengence or whatever is quite a legitimate way of dealing with problems. It isn't.
Khaleej Times Online - Removing sex, profanity from films violates copyright laws: US Court
Sanitizing movies on DVD or VHS tape violates federal copyright laws, and several companies that scrub films must turn over their inventory to Hollywood studios, an appeals judge ruled.
Editing movies to delete objectionable language, sex and violence is an “illegitimate business” that hurts Hollywood studios and directors who own the movie rights, said U.S District Judge Richard P. Matsch in a decision released Thursday in Denver.
“Their (studios and directors) objective . . . is to stop the infringement because of its irreparable injury to the creative artistic expression in the copyrighted movies,” the judge wrote. “There is a public interest in providing such protection.”
