Look at the font of the title of the movie:

When I saw it the first time, I got angry...

Sorry, but Queen have copyrighted all serif fonts and the letters "Q", "U", "E", and "N". Further legal action will be brought upon anyone who dares use all capital letters, small caps, or the first letter capitalized with small caps for the other letters.

Sorry, Microwave.5, but your liberal use of Times New Roman has just gotten you in a heap of trouble.

I seriously don't see what the big deal here is...It is a font used everywhere...Queen didn't claim it. It resembles it...but it's just letters. If it were the Queen Crest...then yes...the movie had copied it.

Oh yes.. I saw this advertised and noticed the similarity.. but, yes, THIS IS ABSOLUTELY DISGRACEFUL AND DISGUSTING AND I WISH DEATH UPON WHOEVER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR IT.

And even if they used the crest?? So what! It was the real Queen's before it was Queen's! Just different Astrological signs. Where do you think they got the name? lol

The Queen crest is not the same as the Real Queen's crest. Thats like saying, Australia's flag is the same as the British flag just with a few stars, it might look the same but there is always something unique about it, the same with Queen's crest.

This is why Freddie left out the word "the" from the band's name.

Times New Roman? Are you by any chance blind?

The lower font is Times New Roman. Look and see the huge contrast. The topicstarter is right in that it is the same font used for the Greatest Hits WWRY cd.

My nephew's name is Brian. I just rang my aunt to say to kill her little boy, because he stole Brian May's name.

It's a bloody disgrace. It's also a disgrace that they name that movie Queen.


I guess they chose the name to make money out it


"On the first day Pim & Niek created a heavenly occupation. Pim & Niek blessed it and named it 'Loosch'."
