*james_nesfield@nesfieldcapital.com* - Artists and Copyrights
*Derek Licciardi*How do the commercial games out there handle contract artists and

musicians? Is the work that they do the sole property of the game

and the company that owns the game or is there a tendency to share

the rights to the work with the contract artist? We've had a

composer take a piece done for our demo and rework it with the Utah

Symphony Orchestra. He's interested in adding it to his demo reel

and copyrighting the material as his own work. While our contract

with him says that he cannot have the "Ages of Athiria" music

because it belongs to EPI, I'm not sure we want to enforce it that

strictly and ruin an otherwise good relationship. We're discussing

sharing the rights to the music with him. I'm interested in knowing

if something like this has been done before with any of the

commercial games. From what I can tell it has but I do not know

specifics concerning the agreements. (ala what rights were given,

.)

I know Mythic has allowed the cover artist they worked with to

imprint the artwork with her signature. EQ also has done the same.

One would believe that John Williams has some ownership over his

Star Wars work. (speculation) I'm looking for information

pertaining to how these arrangements were worked out. Any help

would be appreciated.
