About the Little Book of Music Law
There may be no more universal experience than losing yourself to a great song. And because the enjoyment and creation of music is such a part of being human--and has such revenue potential--it is an art that is widespread, deeply passionate, and often contentious. When combined with an industry in flux and constantly challenged by new media, you get an area of legal issues and developments that are fascinating and astonishingly varied.
The Little Book of Music Law discusses the history and cases surrounding the music business from the early 20th century through today. The cases include legal issues which have had significant effects on the evolution of the industry and are illuminated by the personalities, conflicts, and overwhelming talents within the music industry, including stories featuring Enrico Caruso, Frank Sinatra, Alan Freed, The Beatles, The Supremes, 2 Live Crew, and Eminem.
This book is for anyone interested in working in the music business, having a better understanding of it, or just enjoying an intriguing glimpse of it. It is for the casual observer as well as the industry insider. Beyond the court battles and the technology debates, what is very clear is that the demand for music, no matter the format, is stronger than ever, and this is an entertaining look at this most ubiquitous of arts.
