360 Deals: Full Circle with Don Passman

Entertainment attorney and best-selling author Don Passman assembles another stellar panel to explore the negotiation of 360 deals in the music industry.  We will find out what multiple rights are negotiated (records, merch, touring, sponsorship, publishing, etc).  How commissioning income from recording artists' ancillary rights affects the deal, the differences between new and established artist deals, and how to make the best deal possible for everyone involved.  Always informative and entertaining, this event is not to be missed!
