Ian Watkins Isn't Seeing Lostprofits

Posted by - 09:43 PM on 12/15/13
A music lawyer estimates that Ian Watkins has probably made upwards of 100k ($163,040) since his arrest ... off of publishing royalties. This makes me irrationally angry.
His notoriety and renewed publicity when he is sentenced could even cause a cash generation spike as music sales and internet searches rise. Music lawyer Craig Brookes explained that as the band's lyricist, Watkins will be in line for a big cut of any fees generated. 'The biggest income stream will almost certainly be publishing which, even if radio play has stopped, will still be pretty big,' he told Wales on Sunday.

Oh, it's not irrational anger at all.

The line between the consequences of infamy and of fame is becoming increasingly, terrifyingly blurred.

He gets sentenced on Wednesday.... how much time is he looking at here? He's going to make a lot of money but how is that going to help him if he's locked away for ? years.

Yeah, it might make you angry, but it led to this stellar news headline. Although, all things considered, I wish it wouldn't have. Sorry, nevermind. I feel sad now.

Petition for the government to take all of that cash and put it into a charity for child sex abuse victims. That, or use it to buy a tiger and keep it in the same cell as him.

I'm sure it's his estate that's making that money, not him. He won't be using it where he's going.
