Torontoist: "An open-and-shut case of copyright law gone insane"

Torontoist has done a story on the cancellation of the screening at the Fox.

Those with an ear to the city's sci-fi rumblings (or a Facebook account) probably knew about the Fox Theatre's March 20 presentation of the BSG finale. For seven dollars, you got a ticket to a showing that roundly shamed your friend's gigantic 42 inch widescreen, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Daily Bread Food Bank. Of course, Torontoist would have been only too tickled to let you know about the screening earlier, except for one thing: within days of the press release landing in our inbox, NBC Universal, Battlestar Galactica's heavy-handed steward, promptly changed its mind.

Full Story Here.
