Royalty ownership is an asset. Folks buy it, sell it, deed it, and bankers loan money on it all of the time. Denton’s “law” reeks of a “taking” without just compensation.
Okay, Denton. Try this!
BUY IT! Buy ALL of the royalty at fair market value. Then just never drill it up.
LOL .... you’ll pass Detroit in the Bankruptcy Race like she is standing still.
