I believe that it is fully within their rights as owners of the original trilogy in any form, to adjust the movies as they see fit. Why would should anyone try to tell them that what they are doing is wrong?
You are confusing the arguments. Forget legal rights for a second. What we are arguing is the morality of making the changes. People here have different morals/ethics/values whatever, about this. That is what the debate is about.
Which version of the film are we petioning for? etc...
This argument is lame. Any
of those versions are better than someones hack job. Or Lucas's SE hack job. If you can't see the difference I can't help you. And why shouldn't we whine about it in the thread that was created especially for just that?
Would anyone really spend the kind of time and effort restoring, editing, and preserving these films if they didn't really care about it?
