I'm logging off for Rosh Hoshanah/Shabbos, so your comments won't be moderated for a while, unless I get someone to moderate them for me while I'm gone (Don't offer; I would have someone I know do it). Before I go, this story.
So my boss was on the phone the other day because she wanted another contract revision. In this case it was one word that she wanted inserted.
The original contract language said something like, "If revisions are made by the Publisher to the Work for a new edition, the Publisher must consult the Author."
She wanted it changed to, "If revisions are made by the Publisher to the Work for a new edition, the Publisher must first consult the Author."
Otherwise, the language is murky enough that technically revisions could be made, the second edition could be published, and THEN the author would be informed. In the original wording, no time frame is given to "consult."
I never would have thought of that.
