ALAN MOORE KNOWS THE SCORE

He's kind of almost on-topic, as he was namechecked by Pop Will Eat Itself alongside Into The Groove(y), and the whole theme of artists against giant multinationals fits, so we'll just lob this in sideways:Alan Moore was so pissed off with the shit film they made of V For Vendetta and constant meddling in League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, he's taken the comic away from DC. Of course, he's got the reputation to take such a step, but if enough of the big names in any branch of the arts are prepared to say "enough", the multinationals will have little choice but to start to treat everyone a little more fairly.
