    For a book published five months ago, I expected it to be more up to date.

    I bought this book to review as a potential textbook. I had high hopes but by page three I was a bit disappointed. While the information is presented in a nice, clear, conversational style, a great deal of the copyright registration related information is surprisingly outdated.

    The author repeatedly refers to the SR and PA forms for copyright registration. I can understand using the terms SR and PA as a tool to make clear the difference between the copyright in the sound recording and the copyright in the composition. I did the same thing when discussing copyrights before the change in registration procedures.

    However, the Copyright Office moved from the paper PA and SR forms to the electronic form eCO I believe it was in the summer of 2007. The eCO forms were very successful and streamlined the processing of registrations so in the summer of 2009, the Copyright Office announced that on August 1, 2009, many registration fees would change.

    The eCO form remained at $35 (presumably to encourage people to use it) while its paper version CO went up to $50, and the old paper PA and SR fees went up to $65. The changes were announced well beforehand but the author seems to have missed all of these developments when he updated his book for its second edition published on November 1, 2009.

    Moving past that, the writing style is similar to Donald Passman's All You Need to Know About the Music Business and there is a great deal of valuable information written in a clear way. For an introduction to the subject, I may still use the book as a text but I'm annoyed that this book is not as fresh as I expected for such a recent publication.
