As our team nears the completion of the first rough draft of our script. We will definitely continue to adhere to intellectual property laws. We were definitely going to include some audio clips in our podcast, so it was very helpful to learn about the copyright laws. If our podcast is going to be publicly available, it is crucial we adhere to the IP laws so we don’t get DMCA’d.
Fair use is also something that is important to consider. Doing commentary on audio and video clips is something that is protected under fair use; since we are analyzing and commenting on the dystopian nature of Planet of the Apes, our podcast would definitely be protected under the Fair Use Act. Either way, we will make sure to cite all of our sources so we don’t get into any trouble. If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that corporations will pursue every nickel and dime they can.
