  4. Lionsgate Sues Twilight Parody That Sued Them For Having a Twilight Monopoly

    THIS IS FOR REAL MAKO

    Last spring we told you the riveting tale how Behind the Lines Productions, creator of the Twilight parody Twiharder, decided to sue Lionsgate and Summit on the grounds that they're big meanies who unfairly monopolize the Twilight franchise... a franchise they, y'know, own the rights to. Behind the Lines has some gumption, I'll give them that.

Just in case.
