More On "The Hangover II" Copyright Dispute

Remember that "Hangover II" copyright infringement case invovling the tattoo on Ed Helms' face? The studio, Warner Brothers, now says it has plans to alter the tattoo if the case doesn't settle by the time the DVD hits stores at the end of the year. From documents submitted to the court:

If the parties are unable to resolve their dispute, Warner Bros. does not intend to make any use of the allegedly infringing tattoo after the film ends its run in theaters because Warner Bros. will digitally alter the film to substitute a different tattoo on Ed Helms’s face.

That solution sounds fairly costly. Mediation is set for the middle of this month. More here from The Hollywood Reporter.
