Customer Question

For my Master's thesis there was three of us in a group doing the writing. We made no agreement when it was bound. Now one of the the partners wants to publish it. Myself and the other partner do not want her to move forward with any publishing. Can we make our wishes known in writing, and can having it in written form stop her from moving forward with publishing?

No, you can not stop an author of a joint work from publishing same.

But if she receives money from the publishing of the work she will owe you a portion of such money.

Please keep asking questions until you are satisfied with my answer.
