If a person in Germany was to publish a book with someone elses

Customer Question

If a person in Germany was to publish a book with someone elses name on the book after it has been assigned to them does it make a difference that the laws are in germany? Can a person sue under Passing off under tort law or Unconscionable conduct? If they sell the book to them for a small price and the persons name wasnt on the book do they still have the right to publish? Does employer still own copyright? And can a person claim royalties?
