    Entertainment Law: Fundamentals and Practice is a comprehensive and unique “how to” guide covering every area of entertainment law including fundamental principles, detailed business models, legal foundations, contract terms, practical advice, and full legal citations for cases and statutes. It has the depth required for practicing lawyers and law students, while at the same time being readable, approachable, and a guidebook for anyone interested in how the entertainment industry works.

    The chapters comprehensively cover all aspects of the entertainment industry organized into film, television, book and magazine publishing, music, live theater, radio, celebrity rights, and cyber law. Within those categories related topics such as agents and managers, licensing, advertising, social media, financing, branding, digital media, new television models including video streaming on demand, new models in music publishing and recording and digital radio, computer games, copyright fair use and other related fields are included.
