Submission + - Rights to Intelligent Design move to be auctioned ( 1

madirad writes: "The WSJ reports:
Actor Ben Stein’s controversial documentary, which blasts evolution in favor of intelligent design, is up for the sale to the highest bidder.That’s right. Between June 21 and June 28, you can submit bids online for all the rights to Stein’s “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” film. According to Forbes, it’s up for grabs as part of the liquidation of film producer Premise Media Holdings LP. The company filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in December 2009 and is now seeking to sell the rights, court papers show.
In the film, Stein—a lawyer and former speechwriter for President Richard Nixon as well as the monotone-voiced teacher in both the movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and television’s “The Wonder Years”—argues that the academic world unfairly
punishes those who question evolution and support the theory of intelligent design."
