Talent agents or booking agents typically engage musical artists for what kind of work? a. Songwriting services b. Concert or club dates c. Recording contracts 4. As a practical matter, successful booking agents serve the interests of two different parties, the artist and the talent buyer. (Refer to page 146) 5. With the rise of concert tours as an income source, road managers typically end up guiding careers in place of personal managers. 6. A large, national booking agency generally takes commissions of 10 to 15% of the artist s gross income from work generated by the agency or otherwise eligible for commission. (Refer to page 146) 7. California law prohibits personal managers from procuring employment for their clients. (Refer to page 148)

2 8. Personal managers, as the name implies, are primarily responsible for the personal well-being of their clients, leaving most business decisions to attorneys and booking agents. (Refer to page 149) 9. In New York, most personal managers must be licensed by the state as booking agents. (Refer to page 150) 10.

In lawsuits such as the Rose Blasi case or the Ke$ha case cited in your textbook, the artists were pursuing which central legal argument? a. Management companies shouldn t earn commissions if they solicit employment for the artist directly. b. Management commissions are unreasonable when high percentages are charged for superstars.

3 c. Management contracts, because they involve personal services, can be terminated retroactively by the artist. d. None of the above (Refer to page 151) 16. Most music business attorneys prefer to negotiate with less knowledgeable adversaries because it gives them an opportunity to get more favorable deals. (Refer to page 153) 17. For most music business attorneys, the majority of their time is spent with transaction work as opposed to litigation. (Refer to page 152) 18. Because of conflict-of-interest rules, it is illegal for an artist s attorney to manage the artist s publishing company. (Refer to page 155) Essay 19. Describe in a sentence how California state law defines the role of a talent agent. 20. Large, full-service booking agencies concentrate on representing acts, including unknown artists and major stars, that regularly appear in venues and towns of all sizes, thus being able to fully serve the industry.

Generally, artist personal managers in New York State are not franchised or licensed by a union. (Refer to page 150) 25. A personal manager for an established touring act typically attends nearly every performance. (Refer to page 152) 26. Which situation would be the most ethically dubious? a. A personal manager is also a licensed attorney b. A licensed attorney is also a personal manager c. A personal manager has an interest in an artist-owned publishing company d.
