Listen to Copyright Considerations from New Media Q&A 2015 with Douglas E. Welch


Are there copyright considerations in a podcast? For instance, if you feature the art, music, intellectual property of someone else, either a a soundtrack or the subject of a podcast, do you need permission to use it? First answer, yes! Too often, podcasters get somewhat blindsided when they use a piece of music or a piece of artwork or something by someone else who owns the copyright on that project. Don’t do it. For me, one of the best ways of starting in podcasting is to create all your own content. One, it just sort of bypasses this whole issue with copyright because you own everything you’re doing.
