Hal Leonard Europe has announced the publication of a new edition of Randall D. Wixen’s seminal guide to one of the most complex parts of the music business: The Plain & Simple Guide to Music Publishing. This hotly-anticipated new version has been fully updated and specially adapted to create the world’s first UK-specific book dedicated purely to the business of Music Publishing.

A must-have for anyone involved in the music industry, it is the most up-to-date book on the subject, and successfully explains difficult topics such as the administration of neighbouring rights and streaming in clear, concise language. It is the definitive reference for artists, songwriters/composers, managers, lawyers, music supervisors, record companies, students of music business/law – and those already working in music publishing – to learn about, or refresh their knowledge of, everything from copyright and licensing basics to synchronisation and sub-publishing.

“This book could be the most valuable writing partner you’ll ever hook up with.” – Tom Petty
