I never had any doubt that eventually they would find a way to release "Watchmen". I did have some fears that it would be delayed, but money speaks loudly in Hollywood. The compromise is pretty much what everyone expected. Fox will get a large share of the profits of the movie and the executive at Warner Brothers who messed up and made "Watchmen" without the rights will be burned at the stake.
The last part isn't in the official compromise but I suspect that it is going to happen.
Fox will also get a part of any video games and sequels. I hope there aren't any sequels.
Anyway, now that the legal battle is over we can all get back to our collective over-excitement for the movie.
