Several years ago, someone wrote some music that was used in a game, but he published that music under a nom de plume that he no longer uses. In order to get appropriate attribution in the future, he has asked that the credit be modified for future reference.
Far from being "several years ago," the music was written nearly 20 years ago in the 1990s, with no real identity of author attached to it, and it was uploaded into a pre-WWW/pre-IBM PC BBS system for C= Amiga computers.
The game was then published years later (2001), and then several years after the game was published (2003) this guy then contacted IV claiming to have written the music and he was wanting a check. However, as he stated himself, as this music had no real name attached/associated with it he had no concrete way to show it was actually he who wrote the music, so the fact that he was actually sent any money is amazing.
