Main Question or Discussion Point

Some of the squabbles over how the immense profits from the "Lord of the Rings" are to be divided, have now been settled out of court, according to this article:

Still, a lot of quarrels remain; in particular, Peter Jackson&Fran Walsh think they have been short-thrifted on DVD-sales.

My,my..

Yes, it's hard to get by when you're the highest-paid director of all time. You need all the extra cash you can get.

Jackson close to 100 million dollars settlement?

I know, we can all agree that the figures we're dealing with are insane, and that either one of us could happily have settled for the 200 million dollars or so Peter Jackson already has earned on his master-piece.

But:
Even though these figures are hallucinatory and in quite a different order of magnitude than most PF'ers paychecks, shouldn't we still recognize P.J,.'s right to have the contract signed with New Line actually fulfilled?

I guess they should get what they are owed, but it's disturbing that some people can earn so much more than others.
