I'm not up to speed on the publishing houses, but in the music industry the labels are now writing so-called "360 deals" that allow them to take a cut of virtually any revenue stream to recover record deal advances, and some are coming after other assets including houses, spousal retirement accounts, etc. The days of advances that don't have to be paid back appear to be over.
Sorry, but I'm calling bullshit on this. The Android you could potential build from source is a ghetto. There's no Samsung bits, there's no Google Play bits, all of the AOSP apps you can build are basically abandonware on the part of Google.
