Britain’s Court of Appeals ruled Friday against Elvis Presley’s estate. London businessman Sid Shaw won the legal right to sell Elvis memorabilia at his Presley-related boutique, called Elvisly Yours. For the past 17 years (the King died 22 years ago this summer) Shaw has been engaged in an ongoing battle with Elvis’ estate — namely Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis’ ex-wife and only child, respectively — because he never got a license from the estate to market any of his souvenirs. As Sid told the London tabloids: “I’ve proved that Elvis belongs to all of us — Elvis is part of our history, part of our culture.”
