King's Family Wants IIts Cut

The family of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. is demanding a share of the proceeds from a wave of T-shirts, posters and other merchandise that depicts the civil rights leader alongside Barack Obama.

Isaac Newton Farris is King's nephew and the head of the nonprofit King Center in Atlanta. He says the estate is entitled to hundreds of thousands of dollars in licensing fees.

Why didn't this issue come up "BEFORE" his being elected for President?

I think it is shameful! That family has taken a turn since Momma passed away.
It's not like Obama commisioned the stuff, jeez! I a lady in the parking lot of Kroger's selling bootleg Obama T-Shirts for $20!
I got an authentic Obama campaign Tee for 12 bucks!
People are always trying to make a buck off someone else...
