Welcome back to Business of Film, episode #72. On this episode we take an in-depth look at the Tess Gerritsen lawsuit.
I’m solo-podding it today. I read this article in the Hollywood Reporter and I got, well, very frustrated.
So, I had to take the time to talk in great detail about the most recent judgement in this case, the implications it has for copyright and what it all means.
It’s a pretty complicated case with some stunning realizations about the not only the law, but how IP is treated in general.
It’s a complicated journey that we gone on here. At the end of the pod, and for the last 10 minutes, I detail what “I” personally think about the case and what I think should happen, or should have happened. Keep in mind, these opinions are my own, based on the information that is available to me via public record at this time.
Regardless, it’s truly a fascinating case and worth the discussion.
