A client has been approached about publishing a version of his personal story (accident, recovery, lessons learned) by a publisher issuing a collection of such stories. This particular anecdote also figures heavily in my client's own self-published book. Can the publisher of the compilation exercise any right over my client's ability to tell his own story in other places and ways (such as his own book)? (The publisher's assurance is that only that exact version becomes his company's property.) Do you see cause to be skeptical?
