              "Music Rights Unveiled is essential reading for anyone looking to educate themselves on the use of music-both original and licensed-in contemporary film, television and media. The book's plainspoken, practical advice on everything from hiring a composer to navigating the thicket of music licensing, is both relentlessly up-to-date as well as grounded in fascinating historical context."

              "This book is the go-to guide for learning how to license music for your film - highly-recommended for those filmmakers trying to figure out the complexities of music licensing and content use. Brooke knows more about licensing music than anyone I know in the business. I would never make a film without her help, and now you can learn all her licensing secrets yourself in her new guidebook."

              Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
