Is it still ok for a songwriter to be inspired by a muse and not to give her a proper remuneration (pay her in cash or royalties)? The relative worldwide legislation is even today utterly unjust towards, mainly, the female sex — which still provides the majority of muses. The proof of that is the existence of this Greek songwriter named Anamateur. After having spent years and years in trying to create the great commercial success, there it came in 2076 with 'Anamateros and the Vaunted Weaver', his 6th jazz musical, when Yoyoshi Farzuka, one of the female astronauts participating in NASA's 34th mission to Mars, included the musical (written back in 2021) in the list of her all time favourite works of art. Well deserved on one hand, but on the other hand this doesn't mean that the 'Vaunted Weaver' (in February she celebrated her 100th birthday) should not have been rewarded for her part of the job! Let's skip for now the fact that Farzuka would have never buyed the album if she hadn't seen its marvelous artwork made by the Vaunted Weaver. What I want to focus on here is that all of the female character songs of Anamateur's emblematic album are based on phrases that the Vaunted Weaver had once told him! A painter's model is paid -- why not a musician's one??? Guess what. The lawsuit she had filed against him was rejected last Tuesday, because some Court of utterly patriarchic Greece decided that writing the songs was the only way for him not to commit suicide (after having been sexually rejected by her). I urge the fellow lawyers around the world: let's raise our voices against still existing sexism! Anamateur is actually 105 years old, but it's sure that he will live up to at least 115, so he must see his obsolete crypto-misogynistic methods condemned once and for all!
