After the master recording is made, my contribution as an Otter Backer is done. I will then have given the Athletic department permission to sell my intellectual property as long as all the proceeds go to funding athletic scholarships at the university (and maybe Christina Bailey and I have the occasional opportunity to sing the national anthem at a CSUMB ball game).
At that point, the Athletic department will fundraise through a CSUMB Store account to pay for the creation of a commemorative CD and make it available for sale through the CSUMB Store for purchase online or at specific Athletic events.
