Madeleine Morris, the daughter for composer Dolores Claman, did launch a blog so she could tell her side of story.
"We offered the CBC the following deal: forget the lawsuit -- just pay our legal fees (which we incurred because of CBC's breach of usage as agreed in the license deal) and let's keep the same licensing deal as before. That's it ... same as before. $500 per episode of HNIC. They did not accept."
"... I know you are probably upset that we didn't resolve our differences with the CBC, but no matter what they say publicly, they really, clearly, didn't give a shit about the theme. Their only concern was they should not be seen to be the villains in getting rid of it. My mother became a very convenient scapegoat.."
This is probably a dead issue. After all, TSN sucked all the life out of the song by playing it about 255 times on Monday (all the better to serve as a jumping-off point for parents to talk to their kids about why no one likes a bad winner).
Anyways, it's there, and please go read it in its entirety. It's the least Ms. Claman deserves.
