"Steve Monas is one of the top lawyers in the independent film distribution business, and he has brought his thirty-plus years of experience to bear in his chapter on Motion Picture distribution. Clear and concise, practical and interesting, filled with practical tips derived from actual sample agreements, this chapter will be of use to practitioners interested in developing expertise in these types of transactions, and even experienced attorneys will find it informative. It is so well-written that I plan to assign it to my motion picture seminar students, as soon as available."
