Description

This comprehensive scholarly work provides an analysis of music industry contracts from the legal perspective of Common Law rules. This is an important study that examines the relationship between music-industry professionals and their clients, many of whom may be inexperienced and prove to be unsuccessful in the music industry. Because the relationship between these two parties is so precarious, this book sheds light on these long-term contracts, which may prove to be highly beneficial to parties on both sides.
