    Heavy, informative, impressively researched and comprehensive book on the music business, focusing on music law and copyright issues. Well worth a read if you are inclined to dig that deep.

    I read this book every year as it is a text for a class I teach on the business of music. While it is slow and difficult to read, it contains just about all of the legal and business information you will need to navigate the music industry. A great resource.

    This book is basic reading for music majors and professional musicians. It has more than once been highly recommended to me by serious professionals and instructors and coaches in college-level courses and summer music programs. Even if much of the material in this book involves considerable detail on legal questions, which makes it a difficult read, the sheer amount of information it contains and conveys is great and provides answers to many questions that musicians will have.

It has more than once been highly recommended to me by serious professionals and instructors and coaches in college-level courses and summer music programs. Even if much of the material in this book involves considerable detail on legal questions, which makes it a difficult read, the sheer amount of information it contains and conveys is great and provides answers to many questions that musicians will have. It is therefore also a great reference source. At first glance, the book seems geared mainly toward those working with popular music. Nevertheless, its content actually applies to classical musicians as well. It is worthwhile, interesting, and highly recommended reading, especially if you are just getting into the business side of music and have real concerns about copyright, public domain, negotiating contracts, agents, and so on.

    I production-designed a previous edition of this book. An actual hot-shot firm designed the template and provided it to us, but didn't design all the elements, or make style tags. It was kind of appalling! You'd think that by 1999 big design firms would already know how to use quark.

    Though I have an older edition and legalities change in any business, I've referred to this book throughout my career and I know that it will continue to be a good source of information for me.
