"I am a mediator and arbitrator in the entertainment industry (following a long career as an entertainment attorney and studio/network business affairs executive).  Having a thorough understanding of both basic law and dealmaking custom and practice in this industry is essential to my work.  The Essential Guide to Entertainment Law delivers on both - and I suspect that if more lawyers, executives, entrepreneurs and artists in the entertainment industry familiarized themselves with EG2EL before entering into their contracts, it might lighten my case load."

Fred Kuperberg
Managing Partner, Schuyler Road Advisors, and former EVP and General Counsel, Disney/ABC Cable Networks Group

"Steve Monas is one of the top lawyers in the independent film distribution business, and he has brought his thirty-plus years of experience to bear in his chapter on Motion Picture distribution. Clear and concise, practical and interesting, filled with practical tips derived from actual sample agreements, this chapter will be of use to practitioners interested in developing expertise in these types of transactions, and even experienced attorneys will find it informative. It is so well-written that I plan to assign it to my motion picture seminar students, as soon as available."

Jay Dougherty
Professor of Law & Director, Entertainment/Media Law Institute & Concentration Program Loyola Law School (Los Angeles)

“Things are changing so quickly in the entertainment industry, professionals in every sector of the business are struggling just to keep up.  I can think of no more current or focused resource concerning the rapidly evolving medium of television than Ken Basin's chapters on this topic, and no one more qualified or capable than Ken to serve as a guide through this challenging landscape.”

Nick La Terza
Partner with law firm The Point Media, and former senior legal/business executive for Largo Entertainment, New World Pictures, and Alliance Atlantis Entertainment

"Rob Williams’ eminently readable chapter on motion picture financing is a testament to both his intellect and the depth and breadth of his experience in this field. Highly recommended."

Lucy Wainwright
Head of Business Affairs at Raindog Films

"The intricacies and details of the legal aspects of theater are skillfully and precisely outlined in this book.  It's not an easy task, and the authors spell everything out so clearly that even this non-lawyer can understand it all!  I was very impressed by how easily things are explained, and I can think of no better guide to help anyone through every step needed in producing for the theater."

Theodore S. Chapin
President, The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization
