I recently bought the rights for my book back from my publisher and I bought my book files as part of the deal. Even though they are explicitly included in the contract, he is refusing to give them to me until next year (the contract is dated early November) but he did not mention this before I paid and he'd sent me the contract.
Does anyone know if the only way to make my publisher honour the contract is to take him to court? I am tempted if this is the case as in addition to the stress of the pandemic he's been sending me emails putting me down and being generally unpredictable and unkind. To have the chance of a third party as a witness is tempting because sometimes I feel that people with a little power feel like it's OK to treat people working by themselves quite badly.
Any advice or info on similar experiences would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
