Eleven years after Michael Jackson’s death, the pop star’s heirs still earn a lot from his music.

Works by the “King of Pop”, who died in 2009, would have generated the equivalent of around 40.5 million euros in the past twelve months, estimates the US business magazine “Forbes” in its annual list of dead top earners.

In second place with almost 28 million euros is the children’s book author Theodor Geisel, who works under his psyeudonym “Dr. Seuss ”(“ How the Grinch Stole Christmas ”) became famous. Just behind (27.5 million euros), “Peanuts” creator Charles M. Schulz asserts himself.
