It’s embarrassing to admit it, but until today I was completely oblivious to a terrific podcast, Entertainment Law Update. (The only way I could be more embarrassed is if I have mentioned it here before—and have no recollection at all of doing so!)
Entertainment law is an amalgam of different areas of the law: copyright, contracts, First Amendment, privacy, defamation, and more. I’m fortunate to teach a survey course on the topic at the University of Notre Dame for the Department of Film, Television, and Theatre. The entertainment law cases are often fascinating: they pull back the curtains on celebrities and the industry itself.
Kudos to Gordon P. Firemark for his time and effort in publishing the podcast. As a recovering podcaster myself, I know it’s a huge time sink and labor of love.
