Anti-War Exploitation?

Some Greeneville parents don’t want their son’s name used by anti-war activists:

The parents of an East Tennessee soldier killed in Iraq are suing an Arizona online merchant for including their son’s name on anti-war shirts that list names of troops killed in the war.

The lawsuit filed by Robin and Michael Read of Greeneville accuses Dan Frazier of Flagstaff of inflicting emotional harm by including Spc. Brandon Michael Read’s name on his shirts’ casualty lists. They say their son’s name was used without permission and that Frazier ignored a demand to remove his name.

I’m not a lawyer, but it does seem like a pretty shabby thing to ignore these mourning parents’ wishes.
