If there are any heirs to Memphis's Hooks Brothers Photography Studio, I am
sure they will be throwing their hat into the ring for copyright ownership.

Just go to any photographic studio, have them take your pic, then put it on
your multi-platinum blues CD. Unless you got them to sign a release for you
to use it, they are going to come after you for large sums of moolah, and
you don't even have to be dead.

Actually, the Memphis's Hooks Brothers Photography studio could have gone
broke, a local bank that held a note on the business may have claimed all
the assets of the studio. That bank was later bought by a regional bank
that was later bought by a national bank that was later bought by Nations
Bank that was later merged with Bank of America and now....they surface and
claim that all y'all been using their picture without paying them and are
now looking for their cut.

Stranger things have happened.
