Law of the Music Industry

This seminar explores the recording and music publishing industries from a combined business and legal perspective. The course includes discussions of industry custom and practice, consideration of typical management, recording and publishing agreements and an analysis of music business economics. Assigned cases and text are used to illustrate the more commonly encountered legal issues. A fuller appreciation of typical contract concerns is fostered through mock negotiations. The course also examines the roles which personal managers, attorneys and other representatives play in the guidance and development of musicians' careers.
