Susan - Glad to hear that everything worked out. From what I heard, you got caught up in a broad sweep of brand and licensee protection. Understandable, but scary, and certainly not under the direction of the marketing department with whom we all worked to promote the movie.
The folks at Universal are as fan-centric as any studio executives I know, so it doesn’t surprise me that they heard the roar of the Browncoats and responded in a fair, respectful way.
Once again, I have to commend the Browncoat community on pulling together around a member in need, and having the smarts and chutzpa to respond to "the outside" in thoughtful, pragmatic way!
