Thread Name: a moral dilemma
Subject: RE: a moral dilemma
I would take the money; I don't care much about writing credits anyway. But I don't think I can. I find it difficult already to lie when there are no legal issues; a contract to lie would probably be impossible for me. Probably, promising not to claim authorship would be as far as I could go.

Looks like a very interesting contract, BTW. In itself it doesn't protect Smith's supposed authorship, as showing the contract to prove the authorship actually shows that the authorship isn't real.
