There's A Mouse In Your Podcast, But No Legal Music Yet

You may be reading this, and some may be listening to me. Right now, I'm grateful that you're a dedicated enough listener of MIPTC's podcasts without music, bumpers or other stingers. It would be nice if it stayed that way, but podcasting is about to take a turn for the commercial.

According to the AP, NPR is negotiating to pay royalties for music on podcasts. Apparently, no one podcaster or group of podcasters have the rights to place music on podcasts - which doesn't stop some podcasts from doing so, illegal as it may be.

The stakes are presumably big - if anyone can figure out how to make money at it. The AP article cited above notes that blogging caught the media establishment off guard, and they don't intend to be caught off guard again. Witness Disney's podcasts.

If the Mouse thinks enough of podcasting to make a go of it, maybe the first law podcaster can figure it out, too.
