The Good News: Iron Chef comes to New York June 25th with a two-hour special...
The Bad News: Fuji TV is pulling a "Fox", serving C&D's to all Iron Chef fansites with "Fuji content". But what do you expect of a Japanese broadcaster who prohibited English-language subtitling of its shows?
BTW, if you feel as P.O.'ed as I do, you might want to just skip the big special and see the results here.

I'm especially disappointed to see that it's the law firm of Morrison and Foerster issuing this C&D. Every other time I've ever heard of "The Mighty MoFo", they've been on the side of those fighting for internet freedoms, including helping out a number of Scientology critics.

Rock Crab!? What kind of challenge is that? I remember they had a Battle Brains episode where they had to come up with a desert made from brains! Now there's a challenge. They probably decided to go easy on the American guy.

I didn't go look at the results (and I'm a bit sad to know what the ingredient will be) but it blows that everyone is on such an amazing C&D kick these days. As for MoFo, all I can say is that Big Corporate Law is seldom about issues, it's about clients.
