Four new shows posted

Published on November 4, 2007

At long last, I am pleased to post the first four shows for the Fall of 2007. Thanks for your patience; as I set up my new studio here in Charlotte, there have been some logistical bumps but I think that we’re now on track.

Since I’m no longer living in the Bay Area, someone needs to be at KZSU to put the show on the air. So, a special thanks to Chizzy, the KZSU DJ who is manning the board at KZSU and who is the person directly responsible for putting the show on the air each Wednesday at 5 PM PST. Thanks Chizzy!

So, with that thank you, here are the new shows — all great guests and fun to interview!

Show #52, October 3: Prof. James Grimmelmann of New York Law School, discussing some of his recent articles. James is doing very interesting writing in a wide variety of areas related to cyberlaw; we discuss a few of his recent articles in this show. I am particularly impressed that he was able to find a Borges short story and turn it into a very engaging article!

Show #53, October 10: Prof. Daniel Solove of George Washington School of Law, discussing his new book “The Future of Reputation: Gossip, Rumor, and Privacy on the Internet.” Dan’s new book focuses on the impact of new social and informational technology on privacy issues, focusing here primarily (although not exclusively) on one’s reputation. I enjoyed the interview and hope that you find it informative!

Show #54, October 17: Dean Jon Garon of Hamline University School of Law, discussing his forthcoming book “Own It – The Law & Business Guide to Launching a New Business through Innovation, Exclusivity and Relevance.” Jon’s new book is aimed at the entrepreneur who wants a concise and readable overview of the IP law issues related to starting a business and building it (at least in part) on IP. Because Jon and I differ on some issues (although we agreed on more than I thought we would), we had a conversation that ranged from open source to software patents.

Show #55, October 24: Prof. Rebecca Tushnet of Georgetown Law School, discussing copyright and trademark law. Rebecca is a prolific scholar so it was relatively easy to discuss a number of issues. Rebecca’s treatment of fansites and their impact on how we view IP is very important work.
