But will authors write if publishers won't pay? In particular, the
author may be willing to publish for fame rather than fortune, but they
won't *get* fame unless they can get a big publisher to put their work
out there and hawk it. Their fame is tied to the publisher's
willingness to go along with the deal, which is of course contingent on
the publisher's expected fortune.
I think it'd be harder than you think to separate the "fame" and
"fortune" rights (i.e. Moral vs. Monopoly).
