Great Podcast on Shepard Fairey v. The Associated Press
Professor Doug Lichtman (UCLA Law School) has a terrific new episode of IP Colloquium. The show involves a discussion of Shepard Fairey v. The Associated Press, a case involving a copyright dispute about the HOPE poster of Barack Obama. I blogged about the case here and here.
Doug was able to get Mark Lemley (Shepard Fairey’s lawyer) and also Dale Cendali (the attorney who represents the AP) to come on the show and talk with him about the case. This was the first time the AP spoke publicly about the case in the news media. Also on the show is Ken Richieri, General Counsel at the New York Times.
Lawyers who listen to IP Colloquium podcasts can earn free CLE credit.
The podcast is well worth a listen — a great sophisticated discussion of fair use.
