The Music Industry Handbook provides valuable business strategies and âe~start-upâe(tm) tools for those that wish to set up independent music ventures, and offers clear explanations of numerous issues including legal trading, ownership and IP music law, copyright, exploitation and protective measures, gatekeeping and hidden music income streams. Throughout the book are suggestions for further reading and valuable source links that guide the reader towards key music industry and media texts, as well as a comprehensive glossary of industry-related terms. The Music Industry Handbook will be invaluable to both new and veteran music-makers, promoters, musicians and managers, and students who want to build confident futures within the music industry.
