Reviews - What do customers think about Music Copyright for the New Millenium?
Save me.... Mar 21, 2005
Being in the copyright profession I have read numerous copyright and IP related books and this one is the worst one I have ever suffered through. I actually had Moser as a professor in college and thought I would give his book a try. I'm not sure why since every student hated his class with a passion. But I figured surely his book would be somewhat better.....I was wrong. This book is no different than most of what is out there. It gives no new perspective, just rehashes the same old same old we have been hearing about for years. I had a hard time with this book keeping my attention. If you are completely new to copyright and IP one could benefit, but I think there are other books out there that are easier to read and give a great overview. If you are an IP "scholar" skip it completely. You will be bored to tears.
Great Book For Musicians Sep 28, 2003
This is a very useful and practical book especially for musicians like myself who want to know how their music is legally protected. Its written in an easy to understand style with lots of interesting examples. If you want to learn about copyright, this book is well worth it.
Exceptionally Informative Book Mar 30, 2002
Music Copyright For The New Millennium is an extremely useful reference for anyone involved in the music industry. The book's author, David Moser, writes in a very easy to understand style and provides many examples and tips to illustrate how copyright law really applies to real life situations. It also clears up many of the common misconceptions musicians have about registering copyrights, co-ownership of songs, etc. The last chapter which covers the most currently controversial issues involving copyright and the use of music on Internet is especially informative. If this book existed when I started my career in the music industry, I would have been much more knowledgeable and avoided many problems.
