iMovie '11 blocks Hollywood studio names in credits

In case you were thinking of pretending (even just for fun) that your film made on the new iMovie '11 was done by Paramount Pictures, forget it. Apple has blocked users from entering Hollywood studio names in the credits.

In case you were thinking of pretending (even just for fun) that your film made on the new iMovie '11 was done by Paramount Pictures, forget it. Apple has blocked users from entering Hollywood studio names in the credits.

Instead, you'll see some dashes where the name would be. So far, this has been discovered for at least Paramount and Universal. Naturally, you can still use the word "studios."

Apple hasn't said anything officially about it yet, but it's likely that they did this to prevent budding directors from spoofing films and also because of copyright issues.

Has anyone tried this yet on the new version of iMovie and found other names forbidden from use?
