LL, I apologize if I have jumped the gun. But really, no one ever said that DB is universally unfair to all artists, so your ability to find two people who were able to get rights from him is not evidence that he is "not as black as he is painted."

To use the most absurdly extreme comparison, Hitler had friends who thought he was a good fellow. (And before people jump on me, I am NOT saying DB is comparable to Hitler, except in the quality of having friends and associates who work well with him). To use less extreme examples, the same is true of John Gotti, Al Capone, and many famous criminals. This makes them no less criminal in their dealings with others.
