Yon v. Moore

Michael Yon threatens to sue Michael Moore for using one of his photographs:

My attorney may have to file a lawsuit against Mr. Michael Moore.  In May we contacted Mr. Moore, through his counsel, about Mr. Moore’s unauthorized use of my work on his website.  He did not respond.  My attorney has written again.  If Mr. Moore and his counsel continue to ignore our correspondence, we will proceed with a lawsuit.

It's not about intellectual property as such. Yon allows his work to be used for free by others. It's about ideology. I think Yon should relent. Bloggers should not be filing lawsuits against other media types. Blast him; don't sue him.
