More than forty years after the death of Martin Luther King Jr., his children have resolved a bitter dispute over his multi million dollar estate. As reported by Bruce Carton in an article posted on Legal Blog Watch today, the lawsuits and countersuits stemming from charges of misuse of estate funds and seeking control over various assets have been settled, the family seeking to move on and preserve the legacy of their late father. An interesting sidelight of the story is that the estate retains a legal interest in the copyright of Dr. King’s famous "I Have A Dream" speech that thrilled those present at the March on Washington in August 1963 . In 1999, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that  the "public  performance" of the speech, did not constitute "general publication’ so as to cause the copyright to be forfeited.
