Podcasting Legal 101, with Alexia Bedat
By LWC Studios
You have a great idea for a podcast, but what does it mean to get into the podcast business responsibly as a creator? In this session, Alexia Bedat, a production lawyer at Klaris, will share tips on how to keep yourself legally protected, including when contracts are needed, how to think about your IP (both in the short and long term), whether copyright or trademark registrations should be filed, the RSS feed, and how to avoid getting into trouble for what you say on your podcast. Alexia Bedat is an associate at Klaris Law. Whether it is negotiating host agreements, appearance releases, distribution licenses, film/tv adaptation deals or advising on fair use/fair dealing and other intellectual property-related questions, Alexia counsels podcast production companies and creators through development, production, launch and distribution. As part of her work at Klaris, Alexia helps her clients develop their IP responsibly and navigate the constantly evolving technologies and emerging distribution models. Passionate about the podcast and audio industry, she is also a regular speaker on legal trends and developments in the media & entertainment industries generally, including appearances at South by Southwest (SXSW), ARinAction, PodFest, Clubhouse (Podcasting, Seriously), Velocity of Content and the Binge Factor podcasts. Prior to joining Klaris, Alexia worked as a law clerk at BuzzFeed, where she supported the news team, and at law firms specializing in media law in both London and Paris.
