Wants To Use Lyrics in Academic Book

16 09 2013
Dear Rich: In order to gain permission to use lyrics from a well-known song by a famous singer-songwriter for an academic book chapter about the historical origins of the lyrics, the music publishers are asking for a fee for 10 years, renewable if the book is reprinted. Although it is highly unlikely the book will exceed 1,000 sales, in which case the license will need to be renewed, I am worried the music publishers could pursue my descendants after my death for future fees, should the book be successful.
