    Please tell me that in the land of Disney, we are not going to see this kind of crap......... Seriously, whatever happened to the "fair use" doctrine.

    ... would you buy it if it referenced teletubbies? joking :p

    No but in all seriousness, this is a fiasco.
    At least it is still available in paperback

    I was being somewhat extreme, however Disney has been known for aggressively protecting its products. LucasFilm generally encouraged it. Disney does not.

    If stuff like this is happening, I'm worried. Things like the Force-Cast are at risk if Disney tightens the belt on the Star Wars copyright
