I understand
When a few years ago I gave the West German Television permission for a production of a spectacle based on "The Expedition of Professor Tarantoga" I demanded a very high author's fee. The Germans protested there is no such rate so I explained this isn't a rate - but a schmerzgeld since I was sure they would botch this story.
