Hells Angels sue Disney over film

Seems Disney is soon to start production on a film called Wild Hogs (ooh, real original), about a group of budding motorcyclists who set out on a road trip where they encounter a chapter of the Hells Angels. The actual Hell's Angels say that characters in Wild Hogs are identified as members of the club using their trademarked name and skull logo. They assert that Disney did not give them a copy of the film's screenplay and are using them without their permission. A spokesman for the Disney Corporation commented that the legal action is without merit.

"Without merit"? Do the words "copyright infringement" mean anything to anyone at Disney?
