Pretty frivolous lawsuit. His permission was given to NBC for the interview, story done. Don't like it being used later? Not your choice.A similar claim of something being used out of context was made of Bowling for Columbine and this is just about as invalid a point. It is hard to say a literal claim is made by Moore by editing a couple of things in a certain order. If the connection isn't literally said and made, it is difficult to say it holds up. But whatever.This is pretty much a case of two wrongs don't make a right.

I almost made a comment about the fact that the jacktard is asking for 85 million... but I realize many people sue for millions knowing the actual judgement will be far far less, perhaps a million. And, you never know what the contract said, do you Matt? It could be that the contract the soldier signed aggreed to forfeit rights unconditionally, or there could be a claus in there that dictates certain ways that the video interview could be used, etc - for example, that NBC has the right to use but not to sell the material. You just don't know :P
