Did anyone see the recent NY Times article about choreographic rights, regarding legal issues of choreographer's who have died without wills? Apparently, Erick Hawkins and Charles Weidman both died without wills, thereby,by default, leaving the rights to their works to the state--scary! Why did they do this? Naivete, mischievous, what?? Others, like Balanchine, left specific rights to specific people! If anyone has that article, can you post it--I don't have it in front of me!<BR>

I guess it does seem a little freaky to just leave your life's work to "the state", but what about the uproar caused when you leave your stuff to lazy or self-serving individuals? I probably didn't follow the discussion as carefully as I could have, but seems the Graham company has experience something related?<BR>I love the Hawkins dances I've seen and hope they are somehow safe.

I have to say that I wish the Graham legacy had been left to the State.
