So you'd rather see the Paramount and EA profiting off of something they didn't original create instead of Puzo's own family?
Think he's actually agreeing with you.. at least how I read it. And I agree with you, Puzo's family certainly should be the first in line to get the money. BUT, how long do we let them sit on their arses and not do anything with it? It seems like a lot of these people make a lot of money doing absolutely nothing. I'll give you that at the very least, they keep a shitload of .. well, shit, from screwing up the world/characters/etc. But in doing so, they also prevent the possibility of honest quality work from seeing the light of day.
Since Puzo probably didn't die poor, I'd rather he (and others in his position) leave the money he already made to his estate and let the IP open up for others to try their hand with it.
