  You are correct that reimbursement for some expenses is indeed 
permissible under the internal revenue code. The question is not that 
simple. I think I tried to explain this in the letter to GC and the BoD. 
The question involves whether royalty are "officers" of the corporations, 
whether the travel is required by their office, and whether proper 
accounting safeguards are in place.
  This is not to say that it is or is not being done properly, merely 
that the question is not a simple as it appears. There are lots of picky 
little details in the Code that will bite one if not handled just right!
