Buuut, Bryan Scott O'Malley (creator of Scott Pilgrim and other awesome comics) posts a breakdown of TP's 'pact' for their manga Pilot thing.
And it does not look good.
My favourite bit of head-desk inducing rubbish in this contract is:
“MORAL RIGHTS” AND YOUR CREDIT
“Moral rights” is a fancy term (the French thought it up) that basically has to do with having your name attached to your creation (your credit!) and the right to approve or disapprove certain changes to your creation. Of course, we want you to get credit for your creation, and we want to work with you in case there are changes, but we want to do so under the terms in this pact instead of under fancy French idea. So, in order for us to adapt the Manga Pilot for different media, and to determine how we should include your credit in tough situations, you agree to give up any "moral rights" you might have.
Of course, you still have your rights under this pact to your credit.
YEAH EVERYONE HATES FRANCE, RIGHT? So give up your moral rights to your creation, it's only a silly FRENCH idea!
(And for the record, I've read the contract for myself and it is as bad as it's being made out to be in the LJ entry.)
But yeah, thought I should pass this on.
