What makes you think so? BitComposer gave the license, the studio paid for the license and is responsible for the funding. Is it so clear that bitComposer is actively involved at all? Why would bitComposer have any say if they've already got their money and take no risk on the rest?

The Kickstarter page says that bitComposer does not fund the game, and AFAIR this was the studio's choice.

It's still BitComposer's property, and we know no details of what exactly their licencing entails. They are at this point effectively asking for a donation for a product which may end up selling at (r)etail with BC taking a cut off the top of every sale- they are not a charity, after all- which is risk free money/ funding for them. I don't 'hate' them or even hate the idea of publisher involvement absolutely (I'd certainly consider funding a BG3 from the right people, for example) but it is enough to make the bar for me contributing higher than it would be without BC involvement.
