Yep, he's in the news in faraway Norway too - here an article from the main national broadcaster (in Norwegian, obviously).

The guy is a hero for sure. I hear he doesn't like the spotlight and his father died and he has/had to wait to go home. There is alot of melancholy to the whole story. The seal died which is a tragedy. At worst Harris knew his father was dieing but answered the call anyway, only to not be with his dad at the end. I would say you can't write this but there is an episode of Hercules the legendary journeys about this. Worthy of a saga indeed.
Then there is the coach, his story is almost opposite to Harris. Sad beginning and middle with redemption, giving up his rations and pulling the kids he loved together after leading them into this terrible situation.
This is a twitter account anout him.

I see nothing wrong with the sale of such rights

I wonder what rights and who sold them.

is it the trapped team ?

the rescuers, as a group or individually ?

the estate of the dead Thai Seal member ?


I just hope that money is set aside for the benefit of the estate of the deceased Thai Seal as well as the benefits of the members of the trapped teams and the rescue team


I wonder if those members of the rescue team who were not volunteers can accept any such proceeds?

I wouldn't have thought there were any rights to sell, Allen … it's not a novel or anything like that.

It's so bittersweet for Harris. He'll be decorated with a medal I'm sure next January, but to lose his dad on the same day the rescue finished ...

you can always sell the " rights " to your private life as far as I know

if anyone wants to pay for it

it would be done to avoid litigation:

Rights of Privacy and Publicity for Film and Television

" Written Consent

To avoid violating these rights, the best approach is to obtain a written consent from each person whose name, likeness, or identity will be included in a film or television program. There are three reasons consent should be obtained in writing. First, unless in writing, some state statutes provide that such consents are not valid. See, J. Thomas McCarthy, The Right of Publicity and Privacy, § 10.6 (2003). Second, there could be a dispute about the existence of an oral consent. Finally, unless the consent is in writing, there could be confusion concerning its scope. "

[ you may not want to follow that link unless you like discussion of legal stuff ]

and now there is competition:

“Now You See Me 2” director Jon M. Chu and Ivanhoe Pictures are teaming up on a movie about the rescue operation a day after Pure Flix Entertainment announced it was seeking the movie rights to the mission.

Chu last partnered with Ivanhoe in directing the upcoming romantic comedy “Crazy Rich Asians.” Ivanhoe, an SK Global company, is currently in talks with the most senior officials in Thailand, both on provincial and national levels, about the rescue project. The company is also currently in talks with multiple studios that have shown interest in this project.
Chu signaled that he was working on the project on Wednesday with a tweet, which appeared to slam Pure Flix’s efforts. “I refuse to let Hollywood #whitewashout the Thai Cave rescue story! No way. Not on our watch,” he wrote. “That won’t happen or we’ll give them hell. There’s a beautiful story abt human beings saving other human beings. So anyone thinking abt the story better approach it right & respectfully.”

I could see him and any other member of the Commonwealth countries involved on the " Christmas List " and receiving recognition by the Queen

Honours lists

The lists of who’s received honours are published at New Year and on the Queen’s official birthday in June.

I think the standard thing is to alter names as necessary, and you put one of those ridiculous disclaimers in the credits that say the characters are not based on anyone real.

that doesn't avoid litigation

but will be done if they cannot secure the rights from the individuals

IMHO

Since 1989, honours for Australian citizens don't come from the Queen herself, even if awards are handed out on that day.

They're local affairs, entirely administered by the Federal Government.

No. Knighthoods are different.

Although a separate country since 1901, we've still got the Union Jack on our flag, theoretically have a Governor-General as head of state, etc.


So, we've still been wearing short pants for quite a while.
