Last week, the FBI arrested blogger Kevin Cogill (a/k/a Skwerl) of Culver City, Calif., on suspicion of violating a federal copyright law for posting nine tracks to his blog from the unreleased and much anticipated Guns N’ Roses album Chinese Democracy. On this week’s legal-affairs podcast Lawyer2Lawyer, we discuss the legal issues involved in this case with Lisa Borodkin, an entertainment attorney in private practice in Los Angeles, and Philip Daniels, an associate in the Entertainment, Media and Communications Practice Group at Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton in Culver City, Calif. Hear about the legal issues in this case, the new federal copyright law and what the future looks like for Cogill.
