Review of the International Music Managers' Forum Aspirational Code of Conduct

Author: Dr Guy Morrow | Publication date: February 24, 2010

The International Music Managers’ Forum (IMMF) is a voluntary body seeking to create new standards in relation to artist management practices and to the enforcement of international copyright law. Their aim is constrained by lack of empirical research. This project is significant because it provides the first in-depth analysis of artist management practices in the current phase of decentralisation.
