The Musician's Guide to Understanding and Avoiding Sneaky Lawyer Tricks

Secrets of Negotiating a Record Contract explains the entire recording contract line-by-line in plain English, and reveals over 100 key loopholes and double-dips that will cost artists money.

To help artists avoid hidden agendas, this book exposes the multi-layered language of recording agreements crafted by major label lawyers. Clause by clause, it deconstructs actual contracts and translates them line-by-line into plain English, presenting the original and decoded versions side by side. Focusing on artists' issues, such as advances, royalties and distribution, this revealing handbook explains the need for each clause, offers advice on negotiating fine points, and outlines alternatives for developing new contracts. User-friendly, it includes a glossary of major label recording contract jargon, clarifies common terms uniquely redefined by the music industry, and has entertaining inside stories.

What people say:

"Considerable wit and wisdom on this festering snake pit of a business." – New Times
