You see, the old, original publishing contracts with Random House (and a few others) did not include “digital rights”…They didn’t exist at the time.
It now seems that Random House, who published most of the original print versions of the subject Wylie titles, has wrestled the digital rights from Wylie.
Even though I previously commented on a concern over a Wylie Agency conflict of interest with their authors, I would still like to see the wording of those original Random House contracts…that evidently held up rights that didn’t exist at the time. Rights I believe belong to the writers/authors to assign as they wish.
What do you think?
