If you don’t think the music publishing business continues to change its tune at a rapid clip, consider that the “Father of American Music,” Stephen Foster, died with three pennies in his pocket. Sadly, one of Foster’s biggest hits was “Beautiful Dreamer,” published after his untimely death in 1864. Artists still record the tune to this day. But Foster’s descendants will never receive any royalties from it.
