"What we have waited for: Robert William’s very instructive chapter on Motion Picture Finance is a comprehensive compendium of the Whys and Wherefores of film financing and will serve as a profound work of reference for details in our day to day practice. Rob presents an encouragingly readable guide for all film lawyers and will foster comprehension of this complex matter even among industry participants outside the Hollywood legal crowd."

Philip Löhr
General Counsel, Tele München Group

"I am a mediator and arbitrator in the entertainment industry (following a long career as an entertainment attorney and studio/network business affairs executive).  Having a thorough understanding of both basic law and dealmaking custom and practice in this industry is essential to my work.  The Essential Guide to Entertainment Law delivers on both - and I suspect that if more lawyers, executives, entrepreneurs and artists in the entertainment industry familiarized themselves with EG2EL before entering into their contracts, it might lighten my case load."

Fred Kuperberg
Managing Partner, Schuyler Road Advisors, and former EVP and General Counsel, Disney/ABC Cable Networks Group

"Steve Monas' excellent chapter on Motion Picture Distribution is a lively and illuminating mixture of comprehensive substance and insightful anecdotes all mined from Steve's wealth of professional experience. A thorough and engagingly readable guide for current or future legal practitioners and executives alike...or anyone interested in the intricacies of motion picture distribution agreements."

Adam Platnick
Former President New Regency Productions and Mandalay Pictures

"The Essential Guide to Entertainment Law is just that -- and is worth its weight in gold."

Gray Frederickson
Film Educator and a Producer of Godfather II (Academy Award), Apocolypse Now, and The Outsiders

"If asked to recommend a one stop read on legal fundamentals for entertainment industry dealmaking, this 2-volume series would be high on my list. Gail Ross’ chapter on the literary publishing industry is superb!"

Jeff Wilson
