AMERICAN FORK, Utah, Sept 4 (LSN) – Yesterday WorldNetDaily reported on a brewing battle between Paramount Pictures and a small town video store owner who is obliging customers by professionally editing out offensive sexual scenes and language on request. Don Biesinger, owner of Sunrise Family Video in a conservative Utah town provides the service for a meager $5. He does not sell or rent the videos which he alters at his store. Requests have been filing in. On the day following the Titanic release over 200 videos were delivered to the store for editing.  Biesinger contends people can censor any tape, which they purchase to view for private purposes, and thus his services merely help people exercise their freedom. Paramount, however, says the editing of the videos on request is an infringement of “its rights under copyright trademark and other laws.”  Dorritt Ragosine, a Paramount spokesman told WorldNetDaily that “in this case, with respect to Titanic,  it is also a violation of the rights of Twentieth Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment, and at this point we will take all necessary and appropriate action to protect our interests.”  To see the WorldNetDaily piece go to:
