Veteran music lawyer Donald Passman is in the thick of this transformation and understands that anyone involved in the music business is feeling the deep, far reaching effects of it. This latest edition of what the Los Angeles Times called "The Industry Bible" will lead novices and experts alike through the fundamental practises as well as the new, uncharted territory of one of the world's most dynamic industries.
