My husband was a famous comic book writer and when he passed

My husband was a famous comic book writer and when he passed away twenty years ago, I opened his will to find that his final wish was to be cremated and put into a comic book. Marvel Comics agreed and I travelled to the printing plant in Connecticut and stirred the ash into the ink and 5000 copies were created with him in it. Flash forward to today, and I had a tribute to honor his 20 year passing and Marvel did not want to do the ash in ink again because they claimed it was illegal and also the plant is in China, too far to travel. I created an idea called the "ash-o-graph" and at the tribute I stamped a commemorative poster with with a stamp of his autograph and the ash was in the ink on the stamp pad. I have 100 of these posters and wanted to sell them to his fans. Someone said it was illegal to do that. I need to check with the legality of this so that I can do it. If I do it and make a contribution to his Scholarship Fund, is that a way around it cause it's a "donation" and not a sale, per se. Thanks for the advice!!

Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: I am the trustee of my parents' trust. They have passed away. My brother was sent the deeds for the property that he inherited by my attorney. He has not and may not transfer the deeds into his name, because he is not responsible and says he doesn't have the money. I am being sent the tax bills. What will happen, if he doesn't do anything? The property is in Humboldt County, California. JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $36) to post your type of question to Legal Experts (you only pay if satisfied).
