You know, I really thought the spoilered part of the stinger would be something along the lines of "not the butler".

Not that I'm complaining or anything, just saying ...

Please clarify "by law". Do the film rights open up in 2047 like any other copyrighted work whose author died in 1976? Or is there a particular statute affording perpetual copyright-like exclusive rights, like the UK's sui generis protection of the KJV Bible, the Book of Common Prayer, and Peter Pan?

So why exactly are we not allowed to add some spoileriffic entries, here, anyway? Seeing this indexed in Self-Demonstrating Article just screams "cheesy" to me.

Just curious.

For fun, and because to add who the murderer was would break the promise one makes at the end of the play. I also just find it nicer and more interesting than stating who did it.
