Presley Business

The Presley Business consists of generating revenue from the name and likeness of Elvis Presley, including physical and intellectual property owned or created by Elvis Presley during his life. Our primary revenue sources include ticket sales and related income from public tours of Graceland, income from licensing Elvis' name and likeness for consumer products, commercials and other uses and royalties and other income derived from intellectual property created by Elvis including records, movies, videos and music publishing. We also derive revenue from the operation of Elvis Presley's Heartbreak Hotel and the Meadow Oaks apartment complex. Most of our revenue sources are dependant upon the public's continued interest in Elvis and the intellectual property he created.



Lovely. Gotta go out and get me one of those Elvis ducks. :roll:

I'd really love some 'public domain' to kick in on these bastards.

At least we have the ducks :? :?

Meadow Oaks, I believe, is the apartment complex just north of Graceland, on the same side of the street as the mansion. Perhaps EPE purchase it with the intent to tear it down at some point, or at the least to maintain some semblance of dignified use of property so close to Graceland.

It comes as no surprise that licensing accounts for a larger share of revenues than tours. That's always where they've been most aggressive.
