Godfather Game Lawsuit

Mario Puzo may be sleeping with Luca Brasi and the fishes since 1999, but his estate is not letting anyone horn in on his territory, as this report indicates that Anthony Puzo has filed a lawsuit against Paramount Pictures over revenue from the recent Godfather video game. The author's son claims the estate is due at least $1 million from the game, based on an agreement between his father and the movie studio in 1992 that was "to give Puzo a significant share of the revenue of any audio-visual products sold or rented with elements of the 'Godfather' movies." Paramount has not yet commented on the lawsuit, though in an interesting related note, EA has made it clear a sequel to the game is in the works.

Let me give you some more hints: did you ever hear of a Will and Testament? Go read up on what it is and then maybe you'll understand some things about life and achievements.

You're completely missing the point. As I've said a million times, I'm not questioning the legal merit of Anthony Puzo's claims. However, I personally believe that having IP royalties continue past the original IP creator doesn't promote achievement, it promotes sloth and complacency. There should be a clause in all contracts that prevents royalties from being passed on through wills or other means.
