The announcement came after three people complained to Wilders that their copyright material was used in the film without permission.

Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard said his insulting image of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) was used without his permission.

Westergaard and the Danish Union of Journalists were still mulling legal action against the Dutch politician, according to a statement issued by the Danish union.

The Danish union has represented the cartoonist via its Dutch counterpart, NVJ.

Earlier this month, Westergaard went to court to stop a Danish anti-Islam group from using his cartoon in connection with a protest in the city of Aalborg.

Wilders will also remove the image of Dutch-Moroccan rapper Salah Edin posing as convicted assassin Mohammed Bouyeri, who killed Dutch film maker Theo van Gogh in 2004. Fitna used Edin's lookalike picture instead of Bouyeri's.

Wilders will also credit Dutch television maker Robbie Muntz for the use of some of his audio material.

All three people had threatened legal steps against Wilders.
