Artist rights attorney Amelia V. Vetrone has managed to create a brilliant short book that somehow manages to provide a sweeping overview of the issues involved as well as providing specific anecdotes of how artists have been victimized and how they will eventually be compensated fairly. While most books that approach this subject matter may be dry and hard to read, Vetrone's The Legal and Moral Rights of All Artists is very easy to read and of so much value to any creative person that it should be a mandated text in all communications, arts and legal courses. It is simply the "Old Tom's Cabin" of this generation. It points to the virtual "slavery" and mistreatment artists have received in the past and provides hope for the future when the media entertainment companies -- tired of the growing number of scofflaws pirating their music and films -- will enforce all provisions of the Berne Treaty (that the U.S. has already signed) to protect not only the very future of arts and commerce, but their short-sighted interests.
I cannot commend this book highly enough. To every musician or composer, I say buy a copy of this book -- $14 per paperback and $23 for the hardback version -- for it will save you tens of thousands of dollars. To every writer, director, actor or composer -- get a copy of this book and apply its wisdom to get a better contract from the entertainment companies. To every painter or sculptor, this book is your life's blood -- get it and memorize it.
The very fact that Ms. Vetrone had this book with three different major publishers only to have media parent company lawyers kibosh all three prior times speaks volumes about its value. It is powerful and it is destined to change the way entertainment commerce is conducted in this country.
I wish I could have everyone read it -- it is quite simply the biggest and happiest surprise of 2003-2004.
It is without a doubt the best investment you'll ever make -- and to say that, I really mean you will profit by its insights and comprehensive information. The fact that it is such an easy read should make it a very popular book, indeed.
