The lesson of Groucho

The Chron editorial page recalls a bit of history that would have served the pinheads at Faux News well had they too remembered it:

The Warner Brothers movie studio threatened to sue Groucho Marx when it learned that the Marx Brothers were going to make a film called A Night in Casablanca. Warner Brothers argued that the title was too similar to their now classic Casablanca. Groucho was not about to be threatened. "I'll sue you for using the word Brothers,"Groucho replied. Warner Brothers dropped the matter.
