Intellectual Property – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

Whether you’re listening to this as a podcast, or on the radio, you’re not paying for it. You’re not stealing it. So you’re on the right side of the law. But when you listen to a song on YouTube, or you repost a photo on Facebook, can you be sure that’s totally legal? As a consumer, it can be hard to know. If you’re the creator of intellectual property, like music or photographs, and that’s how you make your living, it’s equally hard to know who’s paying for and who’s stealing your work.
