copyright of cat's cradle:
According to a 1996 online interview, Vonnegut said he had "sold the [film] rights to Cat's Cradle outright and for all eternity to Hilly Elkins, who has never done anything with it and never will and won't sell it back. Cat's Cradle now lies at a crossroads with a stake through its heart. Jerry Garcia had the rights to Sirens of Titan for many years. When he died, we bought the rights back from his estate. Player Piano was bought outright by Ed Pressman quite a while ago. We've been talking to him, asking him to do something with it or let us have it back."
(this is more or less confirmed. there is a movie planned on it with leonardo di caprio and the shooting should have started already last year in spring, but on various pages it is to find, that this will be prolonged into an uncertain future, as it is very hard to write a script for this book. this has happened though already, but the guy who wrote it wrote it in five days or so and a lot of people seem to be unsatisfied with it! there is also a page about movies to come and their stock and it's very very low rated).
