The inaugural episode of of TWIL (aka ‘This Week in Law’), hosted by Denise Howell is available here. I’m one of the panelists, along with John Palfrey and Catherine Kirkman. This week’s guest is Hank Barry, the former CEO of Napster and also a former partner of the prestigious law firm of Wilson, Sonsini. Hank is now a Venture Capitalist and has some provocative observations about the effect of laws like the DMCA on start up companies. We also had a nice discussion of the possible legal woes of YouTube, but this was recorded before the Google acquisition. The next TWIL netcast, which we recorded last Friday, spotlights Mike Arrington of TechCrunch, and will feature discussion of the Google acquisition of YouTube since Mike was a source for the Wall St. Journal’s pre-announcement scoop.
So tune in and send us your comments and criticisms. We’re all about feedback, be it positive or negative. And if you have suggestions for topics or guests please send those along too.
