Thanks. Now we can be clear that the advice you are referring to was rendered on an area which is actually relevant - but unfortunately without the knowledge as to what particular laws applied to the advice you received, your comment is still quite worthless.From the start of the postings, the concern obviously relates to the question of whether an author has a right to his works when such had been contracted.
If my "inquiry from this perspective" does not give the most OBVIOUS and DIRECT relation-association with the posted concern, I do not know what else would.
Conceding? Hardly. Your time might be better compensated in acquiring reading comprehension. I have never said that it was safe.
But I appreciate you conceding the OBVIOUS answer which some of us have been attempting to put across.
By simple virture that my time is not compensated in furthering this topic, I'd just say to any artist - if need be, hire a lawyer to advice you on this. And if he or she is wrong, hire another lawyer to sue him for it.
