There are some iconic sound bytes in the movie. He sold WME/gave it to his son who subsequently sold it a year later to the Bonner Corp which owns dozens of magazines. I imagine that's where/when the apparent disowning occurred.
This is WME's 60th anniversary year.
The non compete clause must have expired.
I would think there would be a better case if Warren Miller was to bring suit for continued use of his name since obviously this action is contrary to his wishes. Vague but yeah. That would silence WME.
I encourage those that would like to see this action stopped, that you write the sponsors of WME professionally and express your feelings and subsequently write Level 1's sponsors and your support. My emails to WME's associates and sponsors all started with my name, age, location and length of time skiing along with a short history of my involvement. I went on to say things along the lines that I will not support anyone associated with WME and intend on doing my best to educate those who view their films of this travesty.
This is Level 1's statement:
BTW this thread was created before the suit. I need to make it clear that the warren miller narration is in the movie without use of advertising it. In other words Josh Berman is celebrating his 10 years of movie making and made mention of how he grew up on WM. and WM comes on to say "thanks Josh..................." WME is so missing the point.
