Critical Acclaim
‘Hayleigh Bosher’s new book is a wonderful addition to the library of any professional working in or having to deal with the copyright field and the legal issues it presents. The clear and user-friendly tone makes the book accessible to professionals from all backgrounds without distracting from the technical and intellectual rigour and depth of research. In sum, Copyright in the Music Industry is a must-read for all those working at the crossroads of these two worlds.’
– Eleonora Rosati, Stockholm University, Sweden and Bird & Bird, Milan, Italy

‘Dr Hayleigh Bosher has done the impossible: write a book on copyright in the music industry that is both practical and readable. As a life-long musician and copyright lawyer for 38 years, this accomplishment cannot be overstated. I expect that the principal audience – as it should be – will be musicians themselves. For them, the book will provide all the background and details necessary to use the law in a way that we all want – to protect and further creativity. Brava.’
– Bill Patry, Senior Copyright Counsel, Google Inc., US
