Taylor Media Services ( reports that the three surviving children of Civil Rights Movement legend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. have been accused of profiteering from the use of Dr. King’s name and image.

The charged was hurled last week when it was revealed that the children have charged the foundation building a national memorial in King’s honor more than $800,000 for the use of words and images of the slain civil rights leader.

The documents released revealed that the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial Project Foundation paid Intellectual Properties Management, Inc, - a firm run by Bernice, Dexter and Martin Luther King, III - $761,160 in 2007 and $71,700 to the family estate in 2003.

The memorial will be a 28-foot sculpture located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. (see Virtual Tour at Meanwhile, the Kings’ have not responded to the criticisms.

However, Cambridge University historian David Garrow is being widely quoted as saying, “I don’t think any other group of family ancestors has been paid a licensing fee for a memorial in Washington.” Garrow told the Associated Press, King would have been absolutely scandalized by the profiteering behavior of his children.”

So the topic for discussion this morning is…in these new age times of intellectual commodities, should the children of MLK be paid copyrights fee’s, or like the now infamous bootleg Obama paraphernalia found on every other corner in America, should the public be allowed to make money on MLK’s name…for free?
