Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The authors of this perennial classic take their responsibilities seriously. Their thorough revision of this industry bible fast-forwards musicians and composing into the future, preparing them for the rapidly-changing realities of their business. It answers questions that we haven't even learned yet to ask: What are the possibilities of Internet sales? What must I know about digital record performance rights? What are the new markets emerging from WIPO and GATT treaty enforcement of copyright protection against counterfeiters and bootleggers? Will the further merging of powerful companies help you or hurt you? Whether you're a starving guitarist or a world-renowned composer, This Business of Music still keeps perfect pitch.
Library Journal
Published since 1964, This Business of Music is recognized as the industry textbook, and Krasilovsky, a music and copyright lawyer, offers broad and deep treatment of contracts, royalties, loans, tax issues, videos, and copyright. The new edition presents the industry in four parts: an overview, the record industry, music writers and publishers, and other aspects of the business. The coverage of technology makes sense of recent and coming changes to the laws affecting the industry, the new music delivery mechanisms, and the impact on the organizations that oversee performance rights. The writing is clear, and Krasilovsky presents complicated legal, financial, and strategic information without oversimplifying. An exceptionally rich appendix reprints important primary-source documents like the Berne Convention and the 1996 WIPO Memorandum. There is also a directory of music industry web sites. The attached CD-ROM contains copyright regulations and registration material along with numerous forms, agreements, and licenses. Both books are excellent references that improve and expand upon the earlier editions. All You Need To Know will be most appreciated by performers and writers, while This Business will be helpful to those who work on the business side.--Joan Pedzich, Harris Beach & Wilcox, Rochester, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
