Overview

(Music Sales America). These are exciting times for musicians, record companies, fans in fact, for anyone with a passion for music. The internet is bringing about a revolution in the way we produce, distribute, and listen to music, and new rules, new deals, new players, and new opportunities seem to be apperaing every day. Where will it end? Will record companies survive? Will MP3 bring down the industry? Can today's musicians use the 'net to go it alone and make a living? How are the record deals of the future going to look? How do you run your own internet record label or online radio station? Is Napster here to stay? Music & The Internet Revolution contains all of the answers, tips and know-how you need to fully embrace the digital age, from webcasting live concerts to reaching fans by e-mail, to setting up your own website. Packed with advice, and with a fully comprehensive appendix of important websites, it is the first definitive guide to the 'net's extraordinary impact on the music business.

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Confused by the whole concept of free music on the Internet? Ex-musician and band manager Conrad Mewton, now an attorney in a top music law firm in London, analyzes the Net's impact on music and offers practical tips for those who want to join the fun in All You Need to Know About Music & the Internet Revolution. Mewton explains how to find, create and listen to MP3s, create an Internet record label and download music. Though computer geeks and serious music fans will be familiar with many of these nuts and bolts, even they should find Mewton's legal insights helpful. Recent developments in the Napster case date some of his discussions but only slightly; in fact, Napster's woes will probably boost sales of this book, because users of that service will need tips on other Internet music venues.
