    Popularity Ponzi Schemes - Can you copyright the taste of cheese?

    Popularity Ponzi Schemes - Can you copyright the taste of cheese?

    In this episode, Denise and Stefan discuss how the EU's highest court had to wake up and taste the cheese to decide whether taste is copyrightable, and how the EU's copyright directive might be financially unfeasible even for YouTube. They also look at who must or should make disclosures; as in, "Is that a real metal band or are your paid bots just happy to see me?" The rise of Nanoinfluencers and CGI influencers, police seek Echo recordings in another murder case, and coming soon to California courts: algorithms deciding who gets out on bail.

I miss your news!

Please consider bringing it back, it was very informative and I need somebody to explain how this stuff works. I got the tech stuff down, it’s the legal stuff that confuses me.

Insightful and interesting

I am a new listener as of a few months, but I’ve already listened to most of what is available in the podcast app. I’d like to go in the direction of law when I can afford to and I work for a family law attorney at the moment. This pod is a very good companion at work and teaches me new things each episode! I can easily see this podcast being enjoyable to many types of people, as well. The host(s) are pretty good with explaining quickly and efficiently what words/ phrases/ etc. mean for the average listener who might not be very familiar with any sort of area of law. Thanks for an excellent listen, TWIL.

One of my top 3 fave podcasts, and I'm not a lawyer.
SO informative, interesting, entertaining. Even though I don't understand all the legal language, it still never gets boring.
