You can cite the work of others. You do need to give them credit.
It's no so much copyright laws you need to look up as it is how to properly credit the citations you use. and perhaps when it stops being a citation for discussion and when you have taken their work wholesale as your own. The latter doesn't sound like the case.
The right keywords should help in a google search.
Does anyone know anything about copyright law as it relates to podcasting?
I am putting together a podcast discussing current events, but can the AP, Reuters, NY Times, etc. come after me for citing their content in the podcast?
New-related web sites of course all have some sortof copyright statement such as:
"All materials contained on this site are protected by United States copyright law and may not be reproduced, distributed, transmitted, displayed, published or broadcast without the prior written permission of [COMPANY NAME] or in the case of third party materials, the owner of that content."
But I am wondering how then even broadcast radio stations get away with discussing and reading portions of stories from the Internet on their shows.
My show will be discussion, like BOL, not just someone reading the news.
I've already got my podcast safe music ready to go... just looking for some opinions on dealing with the source material.
Thanks for any help Buzztown can provide.
