Review quote

"Law and Business of the Entertainment Industry is a comprehensive indispensable guide to the intricacies and pitfalls of the entertainment business." Don Passman Partner, Gang, Tyre, Ramer & Brown, Beverly Hills author of All You Need to Know About the Music Business "I have taught Entertainment Law at the University of Georgia School of Law since 1988, and I have always used Law and Business of the Entertainment Industries. It is a comprehensive survey of relevant cases and materials, and includes excellent questions and editorial observations. One challenge for the editors is the need for frequent updating due to the rapid pace of technological change across industries; thus far, each succeeding edition has built on and improved from the one before, and with the addition of periodic supplements between editions I will surely be able to present the most cutting-edge advances in the classroom. I cannot wait to get my hands on the fourth edition." Bertis Downs, Professor University of Georgia School of Law "An essential text for examining the landscale of both fundamental and landmark court rulings in the entertainment industry." Stan Soocher Editor-in-Chief, Entertainment Law & Finance Department Chair, Music, and Entertainment Industry Studies University of Colorado at Denver "There is simply no other single legal text that covers the major areas of entertainment law with such practical information and scholarly depth that is also written by practicing lawyers who are long recognized as experts in this field." Scott D. Sanders Adjunct Professor Emory University Law School "Over the years, I have used every edition of this book as the primary text for teaching entertainment law. It is a comprehensive, well-organized, and well-written guide through a compiled and voluminous body of law." Kenneth J. Abdo, Esq.
