A statement Monday from Scott Paterno says numerous media outlets have expressed an interest in selling copies of the emotional public memorial service that drew about 12,000 people to a campus arena last week.
The family said they‚??ll soon launch a website where copies can be purchased on DVD. The family says any money generated by the sales would go to charity.
Paterno died Jan. 22 from lung cancer, a little more than two months after he was fired from Penn State in the wake of a child sex-abuse scandal filed against a former assistant.
The service will air in its entirety today at 7 a.m. on the Big Ten network.
