It wouldn't qualify as a work for hire unless Francois was Josh's employee or the work fits within the exception categories (which it doesn't). I don't believe Francois was Josh's employee, so either there was a written assignment that granted ownership to Josh or it was licensed. I hope that Josh got the assignment otherwise he'd probably have to get Francois' permission to give it to people for free.Flatfingers wrote: ↑Tue Dec 25, 2018 11:53 pmActually, I agree with these suggestions about the music.
I don't know what financial arrangement Josh made with Francois, but I'd guess that either the soundtrack was a work for hire and Josh now owns it, or Francois still owns it and licensed it to Josh. In either case, there could be some reasonable legal explanation for why Josh wouldn't feel that releasing the soundtrack would be appropriate.
If I'm mistaken, however, I'd sure like to be able to hear the work that Francois did.
