Copyrights are inherited, yes. (And they last 70 years). However, most of the time its the label who owns the rights - and the author gets royalty. (And the right to royalty is also inherited).

Well, i mean - with that logic, killing off anyone who you will inherit would make you more money. No. If they are alive, they produce more. Eventually they die anyway, and there will be more material to benefit from.

Idk man. I dont really see any other legal sollution than that the copyright owner can profit from their copyright. Maybe something similar to patents who runs out rather quickly, but that means the artist cant benefit from their early work, later on in life.

cuz morons will listen to crap more if they think people will give them brownie points for saying they listen to the dead person's music and saying shit like "rip (insert trash musicians name here) you were gone too soon"

Honestly, i dont mind it. The artist probably would have wished for their unfinished work to be finished and published.

if i'm not wrong Michael Jackson sold more stuff after his death than in his lastest years of life...

An artist might have a mountain of unfinished work, and only a fraction of it will they actually think of as good enough to put together into a completed album. The labels don't give a shit about that though, so once the artist is dead they'll use all of it.

mac miller? also, alot of artists have unreleased things they dont want to get out because they arent happy with it. people turn into perfectionist when they are creative and just trying to outdo yourself every time
