How does it contradict the movie?
My guess is that he's assuming
that Data is brought back within B-4's body, the usual speculative "Data resurrection" scenario, which would contradict the movie because the movie made it clear that B-4's neural net was too unsophisticated to handle Data's software. But the novel doesn't contradict that at all, since it takes a different route to bringing Data 2.0 into existence, and indeed the fundamental incompatibility between B-4's brain and Data's memories is a driving element of the plot.
