My Daddy Done Told Me

"My father told me," claims Ray Charles Robinson Jr., "'You have my name, and you'll be able to use it.'" What he apparently didn't say was that you could use my lyrics and photos of me without permission.  And so, the Ray Charles Foundation is suing the singer's child who carries his name over copyright infringement.

You Don't Know Me: Reflections of My Father, Ray CharlesYou Don't Know Me, Junior's collection of thoughts on his father, has been on shelves for months now. But only now has the foundation formed to manage the affairs of the singing genius decided that the best way to deal with unruly children is to sue them.

Could that possibly work for living fathers?
