PR038: Podcasting and the Law


Podcasting has been referred to as the wild, wild West of media because essentially podcasters can do, say, show anything they want on their podcasts. This is true, you can do whatever you want. But what happens when someone else doesn’t like what you’re doing? Can you get in trouble…with the law?

Listen as lawyers +Gordon Firemark and +Greg Gronholm join me (+Ray Ortega), +Daniel J. Lewis and +David Jackson  to discuss the legalities of podcasting.

We cover the biggest questions most commonly asked like, how much of someone else’s music can I use in my podcast? Or can I play an audio clip from another media source? And how about names, trademarks, copyright, we’ll cover that too.
