Then, websites started to recieve a Cease and Desist letters for posting about the rumor and it’s denial. The telling text is:
“It has come to our attention that you have posted a purported plot details from the Fox Property on your website”and “These purported plot details provide important qualitative details about character, plot, setting and mood, thereby violating Fox’s rights in the copyrights to the screenplay of the Fox Property.”
