Spend $1.5 million to make $750,000?

The CBC is reporting that sodomite fiddler Ashley MacIssac is auctioning off "half of his future revenue".

As I imply in the title to this post, I have a feeling that Ashley MacIssac's "future revenue" may not be worth more than $3 million. I have an odd feeling that the only revenue you'll get half of is the money you've paid him yourself.
