That made me laugh.
And it was an entry so great you had to post it twice.
You have one of the most generous blogs I have ever read <3. Thanks so much for sharing.
Ok, so now we have a real issue on the table, not pie-in-the-sky "what if's" about copyright infringement.
Feel free not to answer if you don't want to tip your hand just yet, but what is the best course of action here: do you sue and potentially burn bridges in the film industry, however unfairly to you? Do you not sue and simply make it known that you've been ripped off (which it appears you have been) so that other writers are more wary of these people, or do you let it go and opt to let cosmic justice take its course? I'm assuming you've documented your paper trail with leave-behinds, etc.

They edited a version for broadcast as they felt pressure from all the fines the FCC was laying down recently.
As Bill stated, here's an excerpt from Friday's Cynopsis.com report:
The WB's newest drama series The Bedford Diaries hasn't even debuted yet, and it's already gathering attention for potential indecency. Following a handful of very expensive FCC fines levied last week, The WB has asked producers Barry Levinson, Tom Fontana and Julie Martin to cut two scenes from their final cut of the show, set to debut on Wednesday night at 9p. One of the scenes features two girls kissing, the other a girl unzipping her jeans. The WB has said it is reacting with "an abundance of caution" in asking the producers to re-cut the show. Levinson says he doesn't blame the network and says "... the network is very fearful of what the FCC has been doing recently. They're intimidating the networks and levying these fines, so the networks are not sure of what they can or can't do." The WB has put the full un-cut episode on its website, where you can see it now.
