S. Victor Whitmill, the artist who created Tyson's iconic tattoo linked and copyrighted the inked art work. He is suing Warner Brothers' firm for allegedly using Tyson's tattoo in the upcoming The Hangover sequel without permission. Whitmill is also seeking the halt of the film's release and also banning the use of Helms' image (who the 'tattoo' was used on) from being used for the film's promotion and advertisement.
"When Mr. Whitmill created the original tattoo, Mr Tyson agreed that Mr. Whitmill would own the artwork and thus, the copyright in the original tattoo. Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. - without attempting to contact Mr. Whitmill, obtain his permission, or credit his creation - has copied Mr. Whitmill's original tattoo and placed it on the face of another actor... This unauthorized exploitation of the original tattoo constitutes copyright infringement," the legal papers filed on Thursdy in federal court in Missouri stated.

News is sweeping the internet that female agents, Emily Prentiss, played by Paget Brewster, and J.J. Jareau, played by A.J. Cook might be returning to the BAU next season. The two were cut at the beginning of the current season for "creative and financial reasons". Prenitiss was written out as a past enemy came back trying to kill her and in the end succeeded.... maybe... while J.J. was transferred to the Pentagon unwillingly.
According to the studio, Cook was sent over an offer last week to return in the new season, while Brewster is also in talks to return if her new show on NBC doesn't get picked up by the network. Up in the air is the new girl on set, Rachel Nichols, who is playing the new agent filling Cook and Prentiss' role. Will she also be returning or will she lose her spot if the two return?
All these changes are coming as the old producer, Ed Bernero, is being replaced by new producer Erica Messer. If everything goes according to planned, the old team will be back together before we know it.
These two soaps are just among the few shows that got the cut so far in the 2010-2011 TV season. Do we know what is coming next? "All My Children" first aired in 1970 and "One Life To live" first aired in 1968.
