It's been 10 years since Confessions of a Record Producer published real-life numbers showing what artists made on so-called “hit records” and how producers, labels, managers, and even the artists' own lawyers conspire to cheat them out of royalties. It's the only publication that tells the real story of how artists get ripped off and how they can protect their assets. In a special 10th Anniversary Edition, author Moses Avalon, one of the industry's most sought-after consultants and artist's rights gurus, has updates on all of the old shams and many new ones created by the internet and the ongoing transformation of the music industry.

• Detailed numbers on how new royalties from digital downloads are calculated, collected, and manipulated.

• Deep inside the new so-called “360 Deals” offered by the major labels.

• Plus a DVD-ROM containing private lessons from Avalon's Workshop. Groundbreaking charts and graphs show industry consolidation, who owns what, and where the future of the music business is headed.
