Well since the bandcamp page seems to belong to Creative Intelligence Arts, I'm not certain whether he retains the right. Little guys might still be as small as they ever were. I don't know what CIA is though: if they're just a talent agency or something then maybe he does?
That's an interesting point about Uematsu and S-E. A reader emailed me to point out that one of the pieces from IAS sounds quite similar to a song from FF9. I suggested that if it were the case that S-E owned the rights to FF's music, then there would be no need to worry about the melodic/harmonic similarities between the two. Still, that does suck a little for Uematsu though. Is that part of why he ended up going freelance?
CIA is a loose collective ... Eminence Orchestra is a part of them ... it's like a large and loosely-built team of Australian and Japanese musicians. CIA is officially the team behind the development-hell KS game "Project Phoenix."
