Freakonomics: Who Owns the Words That Come Out of Your Mouth?

In the latest Freakonomics podcast Stephen Dubner's guest was Barry Singer who wrote a book about Churchill and found out that quoting Churchill doesn't come cheap.

Quote:
Singer: I used 3,872 words of Winston Churchill’s in the book. And that cost me £950, which is roughly 40 cents a word.
