    The group were unaffiliated with a publisher (or a record label) so went ahead and copyrighted their song as individuals on August 22. Then they shopped it around and Atlantic/East West picked up their recording (or decided to record them).. Part of the deal would have been Progressive taking over the copyright thus ensuring 50% of any royalties would flow back to Atlantic and the other 50% would be split by the members of the group. Atlantic, being really efficient, re-registered copyright in December (at time of record release) via Progressive to ensure their claim on the copyright.
