    It's posh talk for constipation. Isn't it about time Clo got a life?

  • Royalty retention is a thing that people do in the colonies when they are afraid they won't be good enough to govern themselves.

    This question is not about royalty, the monarchy and peerage. It is about money, and a financial practice.

    Royalty, in this case, means  a payment made by one party to another that owns a particular asset, for the right to ongoing use of that asset.

    Retaining royalties means holding back some money. For a complete picture, one would need to see legal agreements pertaining to payments.

    As already answered - but this has NOTHING to do with the Royalty section.   Maybe Literature?

    Depends on the context, and jurisdiction, but it is a mechanism whereby publishers can hold back paying royalties to an artist or owner of the work until they have recovered their own outlay for producing, distributing and selling it.
