Default Christine McVie estate sells rights to her musicÖ.again?

Itís seems the estate of Christine McVie has sold the rights to her music. Iíve got to sayÖ..Iím so confused. I thought she sold everything off when she initially left the band. Then Iím pretty sure there was a story about her selling the rights a couple of years ago. Now this. I donít get it. Iím confused as it mentions her share in hits such as Go Your Own Way, Dreams and Landslide. I didnít realise sheíd have any financial interests in he songs of other songwriters. Iím guess as a musician she has some rights. IDK!!!!!!

she would have a financial stake in all the recordings the Rumours5 did. There are rights to be owned/sold to those actual recordings.

The songwriters would own/be able to sell the publishing rights of the songs they themselves wrote (ie, control how they could be used for example if they could be recorded by other artists or recorded for commercials etc)

You are right. I remember stories about Christine selling off the rights to her songs long ago in the 1990s I think. This story surprised me.
