Ray Bradbury demands public apology

"The American author Ray Bradbury has demanded that Michael Moore return the title of his classic novel Fahrenheit 451.

Bradbury, whose science-fiction tome Fahrenheit 451 was published in 1953, blasted Moore, whose politically explosive film Fahrenheit 9/11 opened in North America this weekend, for using the title without permission and asked for an apology and for the film's name to be changed. "It's not a nice thing he has done," Bradbury, 83, said. "My book is known all over the world and that title is my title."

Bradbury said he wanted a public apology from director and author, who published a book last year slamming the Administration of President George Bush.

Moore's representatives did not return calls for comment as his movie opens across North America."
