This book addresses understandably the problematic issues and the business that is formed around it. The main focus is on where it most intensively touches its authors – artists and their management – from where all the necessary licenses are ultimately granted. This book deals with what artists usually must arrange in order to achieve their goals – agreements with regards to their mutual affairs.
New examples have been added to the second edition to better reflect the present time. In particular, streaming and its impact on other business areas are the focus of attention.
The author of the book has over 25 years of experience in the international music business as a manager and legal advisor.
