Intended as a reference for both management and artists in the music industry, this guide provides an overview of music industry contracts and copyright laws. The author begins with an explanation of record company structures and the fundamentals of artist recording agreements, then applies these basic concepts to other forms of agreements such as independent producer agreements, songwriter agreements, and copublishing agreements. Schulenberg, former head of the legal department of Paramount Pictures Music Division, includes some anecdotes from his files. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
