Festival season is a bit of a wash out this year, to say the least. Staying indoors? Make the most of the damp weather or the intense heat, depending on your location, to brush up on the legalities of the music world.
Although its title suggests that this book is exclusively aimed at those working in film and TV rights, Music Copyright: The Use of Music in Film & Television is a mine of information for anyone performing or working in the music industry.
Whether you're a singer-songwriter, in a band, managing a band, a DJ or producer sampling riffs and beats, working in film and TV, or negotiating global rights on behalf of artists, you'll find this volume packed full of readable, sensible and sound advice.
Information is power. This gem of a book, written by a top British music lawyer, will give you a solid basis for understanding, negotiating and even instructing a legal team within the complex world of music rights wherever you're based.
