TOPIC: Good friend of the show and incredibly well informed (and informative) guest Alexandre Montagu, Esq. returns to discuss the recent Viacom vs. YouTube ruling, and how this fits into the context of the DMCA, our rights as consumers of media, and more … we never do get around to discussing boat hulls, but pretty much anything else of interest is in here somewhere!
Dave sticks with us the whole show this week, making sure we stay on time and on track. He still can’t keep us from almost running over but fortunately just one cool site is all we need this week –
- Montagu Law – Connect with Alex’s law firm, and see what else he has going on! In addition, you’ll find links to his recently release book “Intellectual Property: Money and Power In A New Era” – well worth the read (and don’t forget to check out our original interview about this with him HERE).
Great retro style song to end this week with Little Boots’ “Every Night I Say a Prayer”.
TOPIC: No, Conglomeration attendees were not responsible for the riots in Louisville, though Jay Garmon‘s rundown of the annual Sci-Fi and table gaming convention may get you heated up! You’ll wish you were there … and not only that but Jay gives us another great geek trivia question:
How many times did Roger Ebert select a Science Fiction film as one of the year’s best?
We also provide you a few extra coolsites of the week this week –
- Erin Hulin Blog – A friend’s blog, detailing her struggles with MS and life. Support her fight, and don’t forget to look into ways that you can help with research, money and time!
- Incompetech – Free online graph paper, just download and print!
- PrintFreeGraphPaper.com – Free online graph paper, and this one you can define your own!
- AnythingAfter App – For iOS or Android, will tell you if there’s a reason to stick around after the credits!
- Brogue – Remember the text character “graphic” adventure game Rogue? This is just like it, but different!
After all is said and done, we finish it off with “Royals”. Come back in two weeks for our next show!
