Kill 'Em All

And let God sort them out:
A long-running family dispute over a classic gospel song won't just fly away.

The U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday ordered more hearings in the fight over who owns the rights and royalties to Albert Brumley Sr.'s classic "I'll Fly Away."

Three of Brumley's children, four grandchildren and a daughter-in-law filed a lawsuit against one of Brumley's sons, arguing that they should be able to get a share of the royalties from the song. They asked the court to terminate the copyrights to the song, which was being held by a company owned by son Robert Brumley.

If I didn't know better, Mr McGravitas, I would gain the impression that you don't like the system of eternal copyright / rent-squatting.

God's copyright never expires.
