A Happy Ending to the Watchmen Troubles?

Let's hope so, especially since this article in Variety is somewhat promising:
Warner Bros. and Fox are pursuing a settlement of their bitter dispute over "Watchmen."
Attorneys for the studios agreed Friday to delay a federal court hearing until Monday in order to continue settlement talks.
The hearing had been set to take place Friday before US District Court Judge Gary Feess in Los Angeles for the jurist to rule on Warner's request for an expedited hearing on the key issue -- whether to grant Fox's demand to block Warner's plans to release "Watchmen" on March 6.
Feess found on Christmas Eve that Fox owned distribution rights to "Watchmen" due to a provision in a turnaround agreement in the early 1990s.
-Be nice to just get through with this and get on with waiting for the movie to come out....
