Thread Name: a moral dilemma
Subject: RE: a moral dilemma
Exactly the scenario laid out in the OP happened to a friend of mine, the Brighton singer/somgwriter, Miles Wootton. He was told that a leading singer wanted to record one of his songs, but that the song would have to be copyrighted as a joint composition by himself and the person that wanted to record it. I was horrified and advised him to tell the person who wanted to record it to get stuffed! Miles, on the other hand, said that he preferred 50% of something to 100% of nothing.
