My letter to warren miller company;
Dear WMC, This evening I heard that your company is filing a law suit against Level One Productions. I do not know the exact details and could be way off, but as I understand it is due to the fact they used Warren Millers voice in parts of their movie. I am going to try to keep my thoughts concise. Let me start by saying, as an advocate for the advancement of the ski industry, this is completely the WRONG approach to the issue. Our industry still does not have enough revenue for production companies to destroy other companies with petty issues like this. This community is tight enough for you at WM to take up this discrepancy with Level One. This is extremely frustrating to hear that you would feel the need to do this to such a quality group of people just out to make a living for them selves. Their use of Warren's voice could hardly hinder business for you all. If anything, it would only generate interest back to you. But, your law suit has worked quite the opposite. As an avid follower of both WM and Level One (I personally own EVERY Level One movie and EVERY WM video since 2000) I regret to tell you that solely because of this event I will not be purchasing Children of Winter. Also, unless I have my facts wrong and I am very misinformed on the issue (which I very well could be) I will no longer purchase videos from WM or support the company. As you may already know, I am not the only one who feels this way on the issue, I sincerely hope that the decrease in sales you face from the large amount of us upset over this, greatly out weighs any profit you obtain from the Level One law suit, who has done nothing but produce quality movies and support the industry in a POSITIVE manner.

Also, my information is similar to what most have heard on newschoolers.com so if you have anything to post, ie; correct info/ an apology, I suggest you post it there as this once was a core support group for WM, but because of this they will turn against you.)
Hey, stop correcting me after every time I say something wrong... If you do we'll be her for ever.
