A Settlement

I am satisfied that Hachette Filipacchi Media believed they were acting in good faith when procuring the publishing rights from Polaris to use my photograph in SHOCK magazine. Both sides worked to find a solution, and, as a result of our discussions, Hachette Filipacchi Media agreed to pay a licensing fee, and to make a very generous contribution to Fisher House. Fisher House is a first-rate charitable organization dedicated to providing low cost lodging to veterans and military families during visits to military hospitals. I have met many families who benefited greatly from Fisher House beneficence, and though many people have not heard of this fine organization, all military members and their families are well advised to know about their excellent work.

Most important, in the end, service members and their families will benefit from this episode.
