GUEST,Dazbo Reflections/Criticism of Peter Kennedy (268* d) RE: Reflections/Criticism of Peter Kennedy 21 Sep 06


If this is true:

"Fact. Under the royalty agreements which Kennedy drew up, 50% was split between "our informants, collectors, authors and arrangers", and the remaining 50% was claimed by Kennedy. Source. Folk Review. March 1974."

It seems to me that 50% was claimed by Kennedy for his efforts and expenses in collecting plus the share of the other 50% to the person who collected (i.e. Kennedy), the arranger (i.e. Kennedy)etc etc.

Why are you so hung up on the actual amount?

Would you be happy for me to borrow one of your CDs and make a copy for my self? After all you're not likely to actually earn more than a few pence from the sale. So that's alright then?
