A veteran entertainment lawyer reveals how to turn music notes into bank notes New technologies are revolutionizing the music industry. While peer-to-peer file sharing and CD burning are devastating album sales, they are also creating new opportunities to distribute and sell music. This up-to-date guide focuses on these opportunities as well as new business and digital delivery models, and explains how aspiring musicians, established recording artists, independent labels, and entrepreneurs can all take advantage of the new digital technologies. The book includes a comprehensive discussion of new laws and business practices that apply to online music distribution along with a detailed list of venders and services. This book will replace all prior music business books just as digital distribution of music is replacing the old brick and mortar world of retail sales of CDs. The digital revolution has changed everything in the music business: the deals, the law, how music is produced, how it is distributed and even the very identity of the distributors. This new world of recorded music deserves a book exclusively devoted to illuminating it.
