This was one of the things Jerry Siegel complained about in the '70s:

Quote
Also concerned in the 1947 case was Detective Comics, Inc. publishing "Lois Lane, Girl Reporter" and carrying the byline, "By Jerry and Joe", without any compensation being paid to us.

Perhaps that's why the last names were left out of the byline - in order to avoid having to pay Jerry or Joe.

"The bottom line involves choices.  Neither gods nor humans have ever stood calmly in a minefield forever.  Good or evil, they are bound to choose.  And when they do, you will see the truth of all that motivates us.  As a thinking being, you have the obligation to choose.  If the fate of all mankind were in your hands, what would your decision be?  As a writer and an artist, I've drawn my answer."   - Jack Kirby

No matter what sort of a moral case you make for Jerry & Joe, they SOLD Superman, fair and square. What the new owners do with the character is THEIR business.
