IP Colloquium: Can content survive online?
UCLA Law School professor Doug Lichtman has posted another edition of his IP Colloquium podcast, this one featuring a conversation among 3 in-house counsel at top technology and entertainment companies: Brad Smith of Microsoft, Scott Martin of Paramount Pictures, and Dan Cooper of MySpace. They touch on topics ranging from copyright enforcement on UGC sites, to the economics of online advertising, to the question whether new business models like Hulu's and Redbox's can support the creation of motion pictures. Definitely worth listening to, to get a sense of how these companies think about the legal, business, and technical issues being debated across the media world. CLE credit is available in CA, NH, TN, IL, NY, and WA.
