Sherri Burr’s Entertainment Law in a Nutshell provides a comprehensive review of the law affecting film and television talent, musicians, performers, writers and other entertainers. This clearly written book includes a review of the law surrounding credit, contracts, compensation, celebrity status (including privacy and publicity rights), First Amendment, intellectual property, and talent representation. Entertainment Law in a Nutshell also addresses issues confronting Reality Television and the globalization of the entertainment industry. Burr, who interviewed numerous players in the industry for this book, writes about the film, television, and music markets with humor and wit. As author Tony Hillerman said, "It’s nice to be cited in a law book and not be a suspect."
