Royalty issue

Part of Krzysztof Krawczyk's inheritance includes copyrights to his works. Each use of an artist's song is associated with remuneration for its use. Earlier, the royalties went to Krzysztof Krawczyk, now they belong to the heirs. However, at the moment the heir has not been determined, due to the pending case in court.

“The rights to the inheritance of Krzysztof Krawczyk have not yet been acquired, because the issue of the validity of his will is being resolved. This is the first such case for a long time, in which the validity of the celebrity's will is undermined” – explained in an interview with “Fact” an attorney specializing in copyright issues.

Specialists indicate that the annual royalties in the case of Krzysztof Krawczyk may amount to several thousand zlotys. For Junior, who has been struggling with financial problems for years, it is certainly a large cash injection.
