Geert Wilders the creator of the anti-Quran film which drew worldwide condemnations will edit out a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad after complaints of copyright infringement. He had used the cartoon by Danish artist Kurt Westergaard twice in the film “Fitna.” The drawing, which depicts Islam’s prophet wearing a bomb-shaped turban with a lit fuse, provoked violent protests in Muslim countries when it was published by European newspapers two years ago.
The Danish Union of Journalists has said it would sue Wilders for copyright infringement and in response Wilders’ spokeswoman Daphne Rozenboom said in an e-mail that Wilders would replace the cartoon and make other minor edits.
At the same time major Dutch businesses are threatening to sue Geert Wilders over his documentary portraying the Noble Qur’an as inciting violence they fear that a Muslim boycott of Dutch products would inadvertently affect their businesses
“If they (Muslims) decide to boycott Dutch businesses, it will harm Dutch exports,” Bernard Wientjes, the chairman of the Dutch employers’ organization “Companies like Shell, Philips and Unilever are easily recognizable as Dutch companies.”
Truly Geert Wilders’ movie was simply over hyped and it turned out to be nothing significantly controversial as initially projected, Pakistan still has chosen to continue blocking the YouYube website even despite the fact that the video is no longer hosted there
