SHARE CAPTION ONLY: KING PRODUCTS GET LICENSING PROTECTION

Figurines depicting the life of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and videotapes of his speeches have been licensed by his family. Other products being developed include Olympic pins and compact discs that for the first time will feature many of King's speeches. The change stems from an explosion of bootleg King merchandise on the market, says Dexter Scott King, King's youngest son. "We have a legal right to protect what is ours, but whether it's morally right, some people would question," King said.
