Apr 7th, 2009 | By | Category: New Media Organizations, Podcasting, Podcasting Law

The latest episode of the “Get the Download” podcast features a discussion with attorney Colette Vogele, one of the authors of the Creative Commons Podcasting Legal Guide.

Interviewed by Volo Media‘s Jeff Karnes, Vogele discusses intellectual property law, including copyright, trademark, and privacy, and how it relates to new media and podcasting. Colette also addresses digital media topics such as the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA), Creative Commons, downloads vs. streaming, and legal considerations for podcasters.

Vogele is the principal of San Francisco-based Vogele Law, where she practices intellectual property law, specializing in technology and new media. The practice addresses copyright, trademark, privacy, reputation, and security issues. She speaks and writes regularly on issues related to intellectual property, on-line reputation, and the Internet. [She is also an extraordinarily smart and nice person, and has been an excellent information resource when Podcasting News has written about any of the above issues.]

Podcasters, along with every other variety of new media creator, need to take into account some legal considerations when they launch a new project: Do I need signed releases from people I interview or photograph or videotape? What can I use for theme music?  What if someone uses my blog content without my permission?

“Get the Download,” the podcast from the Association for Downloadable Media, covers a variety of topics related to providing advertising and audience measurement standards, and the monetization of downloadable content. The podcast feed is at this link. To stream the current episode, click here.
