Thread Name: a moral dilemma
Subject: RE: a moral dilemma
Thanks, Mysha.

So, since the OP doesn't mention copyright, only authorship, the composer could first register the copyright then still fulfill the agreement no? This could give him more leverage if the star didn't abide by the deal, or serve as an additional negotiating point.

I guess this is just pedantry on my part, since the issue is integrity vs cashing in, not how to maximize the cash-in, but I'm intrigued by the twist on the usual scenario, in which the creator signs away the copyright while maintaining authorship.
