Crazy like a fox. Or maybe a wolf.

Cheers,

I don't know if 1 billion is enough.

A lot of things today are worth a lot of money, but 50 years ago nobody cared about. He may be looking to the future with a future eye.

When I lived in Seattle, back in the 60's and 70's everybody talked about the free scones at the Puyallup fair. They have not been free for decades now.

Where I live now (the last 8 years) every time a friend from out of town came to visit, we'd go to the Maker's Mark free tour. It's no longer free. In fact, they put up a fancy visitor's center and went from $7 to $10 a visit, and they are shoving huge numbers of people through there.

This guy may actually be on to something. And once he owns enough of them, the world could see royalties really go up in price/value. Imagine a penny a play becoming 50 cents or a dollar a play. It sounds crazy, but then a $15 an hour minimum wage sounded crazy in 1970.

It sounds like the artists are actually getting paid, which would be an improvement for many.

Cheers,
