Synopsis

This essential and highly acclaimed guide, now updated and revised in its fifth edition, explains the possibilities and pitfalls of the British music industry, from the developments in new media, privacy, sponsorship and sampling to the expanding role of the internet and the dominance of digital music. Drawing on her extensive experience as a media lawyer, Ann Harrison offers a unique, expert opinion on the deals, the contracts and the business as a whole. She examines in detail the changing face of the music business and provides absorbing case studies of huge stars such as Robbie Williams, Ms Dynamite and Elvis Presley. Fascinating, practical and comprehensive, this is the bible for the music industry and indispensable reading for any musical entrepreneur.

Ann Harrison runs her own successful legal consultancy. Formerly she was head of the music group at a leading media and entertainment law firm. Ann specialises in copyright and contract law mainly for the 'talent' and entrepreneurial end of the business: artists, songwriters, producers, managers, independent record labels and publishers.
