Ellie Briscoe has said: The Publications Committee asked for permission to change one thing about "Follow Me Home"; I submitted it as a reel, and they wanted to publish it as a jig. I agreed with the change happily. I GAVE the dance to the RSCDS to publish. It cost me nothing but a stamp to send it in, and the Society got Muriel Johnstone to pick out a tune, paid someone to typeset it nicely, put it in a book and sent it all over the world. My payoff is the delight I feel when I see it on a program and see people having fun with it. I do not begrudge the Society "ownership" of the dance. I'm a member of the Society, after all. Mel and I have other dances we have published privately. We didn't copyright them; we don't care if people copy them. We would rather someone did the dance from a photocopy than from notes!
