The Brabecs, experienced entertainment lawyers, have written a practical, comprehensive guide about the music business for songwriters and recording artists. They pay special attention to songwriting, dealing in depth with such topics as music publishing; songwriting for motion pictures, Broadway, commercials, and television; performance rights; foreign rights; buying and selling songs; and copyright. The authors also include a section on lawyers, managers, and agents, as well as a chapter on recording artists. Useful to professionals and novices alike, this well-written book provides songwriters--and, to a lesser extent, recording artists--detailed guidance to the many complex aspects of the music business. Highly recommended for the music reference sections of all types of libraries.
