Now in its fifth edition, Law and Business of the Entertainment Industries is authored by a panel of experts who are also among the top lawyers in the field.

The pleasing result is both a casebook filled with several of the most important decisions affecting the entertainment business....In all, this fully updated fifth edition....[m]ay well be the most comprehensive work on the subject available." - Entertainment and Sports Lawyer

Other topics include (for example) literary publishing, sound recordings, film, television, and the Internet. Editor Don Biederman (who died in 2002) taught entertainment and media law at Southwestern U. School of Law in Los Angeles." - Reference & Research Book News
