From Library Journal:

Because of tremendous growth in the interactive multimedia industry and significant changes in the law, attorneys Brinson and Radcliffe have revised and greatly enlarged their Multimedia Law Handbook (Ladera Pr., 1994) with this new title. It is designed to help nonlawyers understand and deal with legal and business issues involved in creating and distributing multimedia products. The book contains 24 chapters covering such topics as laws affecting copyright, trademarks, contracts, and sales; development, distribution, and licensing agreements; dealing with independent contractors, employees, and unions; writing for multimedia; using music; negotiating with publishers and distributors; protecting intellectual property rights; and educational issues. Numerous examples and checklists to help the reader understand how the law is applied to actual situations are provided. Also supplied within the margins are helpful cross references to related sections of the book. About a quarter of this handbook consists of appendixes; the copyright law and forms; 22 sample contracts (also included on disc); lists of multimedia associations, agencies, and unions; and a glossary. This comprehensive, clearly written handbook offers sound, practical advice to multimedia developers and publishers. Recommended for business collections.?Leonard Grundt, Nassau Community Coll.

Review:

The price tag may seem hefty but any practical technical guide to multimedia legal issues which includes a diskette of sample contracts for multimedia can be expected to deliver its money's worth. Multimedia Law and Business Handbook covers not only the basics of multimedia copyright and contracts, but provides keys to writing and developing multimedia and details on both independent contractor and employee involvements. -- Midwest Book Review
