Charity ‘Cage Match’ canceled due to legal concerns

Northwestern students won’t be watching Nicolas Cage movies for charity this weekend after all.

“Cage Match, Round 2,” a event planned for this weekend in which NU students were to watch Cage movies for 30 hours straight to benefit Amnesty International, has been canceled due to legal concerns, organizers announced via their website Thursday.

“The event as it was scheduled was in violation of both University policy and United States federal copyright law,” organizers acknowledged. “Inevitably, as is so often the case in this day and age, fun ideas are simply not long for this world.”

The event, in its second year, gained attention on several media outlets. The legal concerns were first raised by a University official, who saw a poster for the event.
