Even dead, half the Beatles made more than many living musicians. But how is Steve McQueen's estate hauling in the cash? Only by photos for advertising?

I am not surprised with this result.

Well, it is Halloween season...

Still, call me a socialist, but I feel somewhat uneasy with the fact that plenty of dead people are earning millions of dollars when millions of living people are struggling to survive.

I have no problem with people earning money when they are alive, but how about a law that says any profits made from a dead person shall go towards education or charity or something worthwhile?

i hope none of MJ's millions went to his "live-off-my-fame" family. the jackson brothers need to finally earn a living by themselves by actually working.

Most of the money earned by the Jackson estate will be going to pay off his massive debts.

(Note to all the liberal, give-me-your-wealth posters, the following is a joke): If these dead people could talk, they would say to those people protesting on Wall Street "we're dead and can still earn money, what lame excuse can you make for not being able to find jobs. "

Night of the Earning Dead...I think George Romero has a title for his next zombie movie. XD

How is Einstein's estate earning money? Does someone get royalties every time e=mc^2 is used?

Seems like dying was a real good career move for this mob! Surprised Kurt Cobain didn't get a start in the top 15?

That's what we are protesting. The money goes to corporations that rob people outta their money. A deceased artist shouldn't be earning money.

You do realize that Michael Jackson isn't actually getting the money don't you? No one is shoveling loads of cash into his casket. I suspect his family will receive the fruits of his life's work now.
