Columbia? I thought it was Sony. Maybe they were out bid.

Just because you answered one of my questions doesn't mean you're off the hook about the feed. Are we out of luck until tomorrow? That sucks because I have to work tomorrow, I'll miss it. Oh well, I guess I'll go do something productive with my time.

It seems like
the executors are
doing a really good job,
and they will continue to make
decisions financially
advantageous for the benefit of the family, so they should
shut up and let them fufill Michaels wishes and
worry about raising the kids

Don't get it.

Columbia pays $60 million for the rights and makes the movie.
If the Jackson estate gets 90% of profits and AEG gets 10% of the profits, what does Columbia get out of the deal? DVD sales distribution profits? or what?

We'll be seeing likeness' of his image on paper bindles in the gutters in Harlem. Coincidentally bearing the same slang term as "boy".
