TORONTO, Sept. 19 /CNW/ - Journalist Arthur Kent today announced that he
has reached a global settlement of the lawsuits Kent brought in the U.S. and
Canada in relation to the use of portions of his voice and video recordings in
the motion picture Charlie Wilson's War.
Terms of the settlement are confidential.
Kent says: "I am very pleased with the terms of the settlement. I brought
these actions only to uphold the copyright protection of my work, my voice,
and my archive, and to make clear that I do not endorse the account of
historical events conveyed by the movie."
Kent first reported from Afghanistan in 1980, and now chronicles the
conflict online at <a href="http://www.skyreporter.com">skyreporter.com</a>
