You make it sound as if this were objectionable. How would you feel if somebody else were making a small or big fortune based on your design work and you don't get one meesly dime?

Besides, I don't think your summary is correct. Matt Jefferies went to great lengths stretching whatever little budget Bob Justman allocated to set construction. And then, you see the Franz Joseph blueprints and suddenly a lot of these sets (e.g. auxiliary control room, emergency manual monitor, herbarium etc.) don't even seem to exist any longer, add to this that the studio sets were not reproduced accurately.
