The Top Earning Dead Celebrities of the Decade

Elvis You may be wondering, "who are the top earning dead celebrities of the decade?"  The linked chart, which is provided by termlifeinsurance.org and is adapted from information provided by Forbes, provides the names of the fifteen top earning dead celebrities and some creative illustrations.  

Michael Jackson's third-place rank may be surprising for some considering that he has been dead for only a fraction of a decade.  Also surprising may be number ten, Bob Marley, given my recent report that unlicensed sales using Marley's name and image are estimated to be $600 million annually, while licensed sales are only a small fraction of this amount.
