I am about 'Owning your idea's.' I know you are too George. So many people made up church songs, poems, etc. and wrote stories that are now master peices. The people who find them, copywrite and benefit financially from this. If there is a family member of any of the singer's of the group, have them get legal rights and be ready for financial gains. I worked with a lady who wrote poems. I don't know how but a popular artist found this poem and had to get her permission to put it in one of his songs. Because she had the rights, she gained financially, by letting them use it, but she never gave up her ownership.
