Announcement: Artists’ Legal Outreach Launches Copyright Podcast

November 8, 2019

Pacific Legal Education & Outreach and Artists’ Legal Outreach are proud to announce the launch of Yours Mine Ours, a new podcast dedicated to copyright.

Emerging from ALO’s series of public copyright conversations held in Vancouver in the spring and summer of 2019, Yours Mine Ours  features artists from a wide variety of disciplines discussing a host of copyright issues with ALO’s Legal Director, Martha Rans.

The first episode, “Film, The People and The Public Domain” drops November 8. Featuring an in-depth conversation with celebrated filmmaker Nettie Wild, “Film, The People and the Public Domain” explores Wild’s reflections of the film on the 25th anniversary of the Zapatista uprising in Mexico and her groundbreaking decision to repatriate the entirety of the films raw footage to Mexico for use by the Mexican people.

New instalments of the initial 6-episode series will drop weekly and feature:

  • American theatre artist Erin Pike discussing her performance “thatswhatshesaid” and the impact of the cease & desist and fair use
  • Vancouver musician Veda Hille and Portland, OR copyright lawyer Kohel Haver discussing the creative and legal challenges of musical parody and satire
  • Calgary-based public artists Caitlind r.c. Brown and Wayne Garret on the mixed blessings of viral success and fighting copies of their work
  • International conceptual artist Maryam Jaffri on her career and the long arm of Getty Images
  • Dancer/choreographer Tara Cheyenne tackling the question, “Who owns the dance?”
