Slightly pregnant, social media privacy laws & “mockbusters” – Podcast: August 2012
We’ve got a terrific episode for you this month highlighting the legal aspects of some major news stories. To start, our “Chaos in the Courts” segment highlights an unusual way a woman tried to ditch law enforcement which included being “slightly pregnant and slightly in labor”.
Then in our “On the Blawgs” segment we feature a blog post about social media privacy laws.
Our interview segment is with Jon Steinsapir of Kinsella Weitzman, who talks about the controversial “mockbuster” industry and the legal implications concerning these knockoffs of Hollywood’s biggest hits.
The complete interview with Jon Steinsapir about mockbusters can be found here.
We then wrap-up with our “In the News” segment featuring a story from Thomson Reuters News & Insight about recent agreements between branded and generic drug companies allegedly colluding to delay generic competition.
