But... what about this?? http://blogs.indiewi...ontent=Netvibes
Is that legal too...??
I think this is awful. Just because, legally, it can be done doesn't mean it should be. Especially since the goal seems to be to do it just for the sake of doing it, and re-inventing the character in the process. Not good reasons to rival the "original" Bond series, which is still going strong. If the EON franchise had died off years ago and Bond was stagnant, I would be all for seeing something, someone, bring the character to life again but, in my opinion, Bond doesn't need it just yet.
I "understand" Fleming's case (in a Canadian way), but how could you remake 1981's FYEO legally??
