Summary/Abstract "Music Business is an insider's guide to the infrastructure practice and law of the music business. Unusually for a book on this subject, it analyses the organisation and evolution of the music business before considering the copyright and contract rules which underlie it. Wherever possible, the book adopts and international approach, with particular emphasis on the UK, USA and EU." "Anyone with a serious professional interest in the music business will find Music Business indispensable. This includes creators, managers, executive, investors, bankers, accountants, politicians, journalists, civil servants, students, and commercial users of music in addition to lawyers working in the field of media and entertainment."--BOOK JACKET
