I posted this at my news community, but I thought I'd post it here as well.
Recently, in George Harrison news I learned on tumblr
about personal items of the Harrison family going to be sold. These items being auctioned by Maverick Music
include never before seen family photos, and videos of the Harrison family in Maui. The Harrison family is unaware of these items being in the possession of this seller and that they are being put up for auction.
There's been a petition
created by fans of George for the return of these items to Dhani and Olivia. They feel that since George was such a private person, and that these pictures and videos weren't taken with the intent of being made public that they should be given back to Dhani and Olivia.
I think the items should be returned to Olivia and Dhani. If the specifics of this story are true. I'm inclined to believe that it's possible the person in possession of these items might not have obtained them honestly. Especially if, as the seller claims that Dhani and Olivia don't know he has them.
, Paul McCartney took legal action against the family of Rose Martin for the return of items that they claim Linda McCartney gave to Rose. The family wants to sell them, and Paul wants those items returned to him as he believes Linda didn't give them away. This isn't exactly the same situation, but it's somewhat similar.
What do you think about all of this?
