So, either someone was able to find the original contracts, or IDW's just taking a bit of a risk and assuming they were fairly standard WFH contracts from the era.
I think I read somewhere (Rich's Facebook page?) that the new publication style of this reprint collection falls into an "archival" rather than "commercial" format, similar to that CD-ROM collection from GIT, which also did not compensate the original creative teams.
That's kind of funny. IDW is basing it's legality on the fact that nobody's gonna buy it. Well, since nobody bought it's other "archival" reprints ("Star Trek Archives" and "Star Trek Classics") this should work out fine.
