Religious copyright

Now here is a BIG question. Should the Pope be able to exploit his copyright? Should it matter that he has taken a vow of poverty? Is it even relevant, given that he has assigned his copyrights to the Vatican’s publishing house?

Something about Vatican lawyers demanding royalties from the writings of the Pope, even those before he was made Pope, strikes me as a bit on the slimy side.
