Music law for the general practitioner
This book is a primer on handling musician and producer clients. Music law involves several key substantive areas of lawcopyrights, trademarks, and identity rights, to name a few. While traditional entities such as songwriters and record companies have always existed, technological advances in digital distribution have brought important new players into the mix. Concerns about the usage rights of digital music have emerged as well as agreements arising from the use of music in advertising and branding. Inexpensive duplication technology, the portability and ubiquity of mobile music devices, and the ease of transmitting digital files have also become areas of concern. Information on digital rights usage and the use of music in advertising is included, along with business-related topics such as financing, agents and taxes. - From the publisher
