Is it true that Bill W. (when he was alive) and Bill W.'s family (now) receive the proceeds from the sales of the Big Book?

It is true that Bill and Bob got a piece of every Big Book sale, I don’t remember what the percentage was but they got something. Bill and Lois had no kids, Dr. Bob had two, and I believe they are alive today, but I don’t think they get anything from Big Book sales. Again, I may have this wrong, but full ownership of the Big Book is now held by Alcoholics Anonymous World Service alone.

If I have any of this wrong, I am sure someone will chime in.

They are the ones who can tell you.
