As I understand there now exists the notion/case law of "moral rights". Not being a lawyer I am unsure just what this means, but it sounds as if it leaves a loophole to be tested in law when a record company apparently fails to honour its obligations to artistes. I am also told by a friend who has dealt with Bulmer that now Sharpley has been "defrocked" by his Professional body, Bulmer is using a London solicitor called Nick Kanaar who, strangely in view of the circumstances, claims to work for "oppressed" artistes. I wonder what he would make of all the hostility and (alleged) impropriety of his client? Funny old World.
