MEMORANDUM**

2

Jesse Don Hickson III appeals pro se the district court's Fed.R.Civ.P. 12(b)(6) dismissal for failure to state a claim in his diversity action alleging that the National Broadcasting Company Inc. ("NBC)" converted his name, likeness and history by including references to Hickson "in up to half of the NBC entertainment programs for more than ten years." Hickson's claims are fanciful, delusional and legally frivolous. Accordingly, the district court did not err in dismissing his action pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 12(b)(6).

AFFIRMED.
