Hollywood Shoots Self in Foot

CleanFlicks is now out of business. Directors managed to convince a judge that editing out nudity and gratuitous violence dilutes their artistic vision and ruins their reputation. Of course CleanFlicks has been legally licensing the films they edit for decency, so the directors have just destroyed a potentially lucrative revenue stream.

I wonder who the studio execs are pissed of with? The small editing studio opening up a new market for their goods or the directors exerting control over said goods?
