There is hardly an aspect of internet music promotion, sale and distribution which does not have a legal dimension. Since the stakeholders in the process includes artists, their managers, music publishers, record companies, distribution companies and the consumer, the law relating to internet music distribution is extremely complex. Andrew Sparrow's Music Distribution and the Internet provides those connected to the music and media industries with a guide to the legal requirements they must meet, answering questions such as: Ã¢Â¢ How should you conclude contracts with consumers over the internet? Ã¢Â¢ What are the various legal terms and conditions that should govern the sale of physical product to online music buyers? Ã¢Â¢ How should a website user's personal information be handled? Ã¢Â¢ What limitations are there on the way this data may be used for ongoing marketing of an artist's work or the merchandise associated with it? Ã¢Â¢ What are the latest copyright laws in this area and how do they apply to the internet? The book provides practical advice on how to approach key relationships with the internet buying consumer and other online media providers. The law is explained in straightforward terms and applied throughout in a music business context. Music Distribution and the Internet is an essential reference for anyone seeking to exploit and protect their rights and those of their artists in the rapidly expanding, constantly evolving and fascinating arena that is new media.
Scholars have made conflicting claims for Byzantine hospitals as medical institutions and as the forebears of the modern hospital. In this study is the first systematic examination of the evidence of the xenon texts, or Xenonika, on which all such claims must in part rest. These texts, compiled broadly between the ninth and thirteenth centuries, are also transcribed or edited, with the exception of the combined texts of Romanos and Theophilos that, the study proposes, were originally a single manual and teaching work for doctors, probably based on xenon practice. A schema (App. III) of their combined chapter headings sets out the unified structure of this text. A short handlist briefly describes the principal manuscripts referred to throughout the study. The Introduction briefly examines our evidence for the xenones from the early centuries of the East Roman empire to the fall of Constantinople in 1453. Chapter 1 examines the texts in xenon medical practice, and compares them to some other medical manuals and remedy texts of the Late period, and their structures. The xenon-ascribed texts are discussed one by one in chapters 2 - 4; the concluding chapter 5 draws together the common, as well as the divergent, aspects of each text and looks to the comparative evidence for hospital medical practice of the time in the West.
