Keep in mind that there are different meanings to "selling your work."

Let's say that some big-name pop star buys the album. He buys it for
$10. That gives him the right to listen to it. He can't record it
himself. I still own all the rights to the usage of the song.
Let's say that he likes the song, and wants to record it and release it
on his next album. I then agree to give him a "mechanical license"
for a few cents per album he releases. I still own all the rights to
the usage of the song.
Then, let's say that he wants to be able to do more with the song - he
can buy the copyright, and then all the rights to the song will be his.
I have no rights to the song from that point on.

Staat heißt das kälteste aller kalten Ungeheuer. Kalt lügt es auch;
und diese Lüge kriecht aus seinem Munde: 'Ich, der Staat, bin das Volk.'
