Wellington New Zealand, my old home town, is thinking of erecting a Wellywood sign. The only problem is that the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, and Global Icons (owners of the intellectual property rights to the Hollywood sign) aren't too happy.

Wellington, which plays the part of Capital City of New Zealand when Auckland isn't looking, has a fairly big film industry connection, being the home of Peter Jackson and WETA Workshop.

Jackson is reportedly adamant that the sign be an "exact copy" of the Hollywood sign, though another report suggests it will be only 1/5 the height of the Hollywood sign.

Why don't they just have WETA add it in post?
