Why Fox is really suing Warner Brothers over Watchmen

Sure, Fox is suing Warner Bros over the rights to make a Watchmen movie because they want to shake Warner Bros down for some cash. But according to Rich Johnston, Fox also wants full rights to sell dvds of the Adam West Batman tv series. Currently, Fox owns the rights to the show, but Warner Bros owns the rights to the characters and trademarks. So, with any luck, the companies will settle and we'll soon have a terrific Watchmen movie, and the Batman tv show on dvd.
