Licensing over a dozen of your songs to a billion dollar box office smash AND the soundtrack to go with it AND the DVD sales AND all the movie merchandise “hasn’t earned you a penny”? Brian, either your accountant is a crook, or you’re insulting our intelligence. 12 years in the making and a lot of hard work that went into the making. Production costs alone.

He said they haven’t had any money YET. There’s a difference. Royalties and consultancy fees take time and are often based off of box office performance. He has a big cheque coming.
