The contract supposedly says that miscellaneous digital rights get 50% of the royalty that the parent company received. I haven't seen the contracts, but I'm guessing they say that the authors get 100% of the received royalties for print.
Thus for print they got 6-8%, for any unspecified digital rights they got half that.
