The crisis could mean danger We just have to be willing to have the courage to do the right thing The memorial and subsequent burial service both open to members of the public A senior Russian military official is suggesting Russia might invade another country besides Ukraine The deputy commander of Russia's central military district said Friday Russia wants to establish full control over parts of eastern and southern Ukraine as part of a second phase of their operation That he says would carve out a land corridor from Russia to Crimea the Milwaukee Bucks have a two to one advantage now over the bulls after last night's one 1181 NBA playoff win in Chicago I'm Scott Carr This is Bloomberg law with June gros from Bloomberg radio Yes indeed Nice to me in Washington where the buck stops here Way to go And then it's handed out to AIG and many other people Now Robin Williams is a comedy legend as is George Carlin There are words that you can say no problem Topography No one has ever gone to jail for screaming topography But there are some words that you can go to jail for You can listen to their comedy albums on streaming services but the estates of Williams and Carlin say that Pandora media is streaming their comedy albums without getting a license from them Their estates along with comedians Andrew dice clay Ron white Bill engVid villa Nick de Paulo are suing Pandora for not paying them as the authors of the jokes in the way that songwriters are paid royalties for writing lyrics It will be the first time a court will hear a case over licensing spoken word comedy To help us understand the novel questions here my guest is intellectual property litigator Terrence Ross a partner at cat and rosenman Terry the licensing structure gets very complicated Can you give us an overview So copyright law with respect to recorded sound is currently very complex because of a complicated history And there was literally no provision for copyright in recorded south over the course of 20 century In 1972 Congress finally got around to fixing the 1909 copyright act by providing copyrights or recorded sound going forward in time But because recorded sound came to the copyright game So late in the day it has now a complicated licensing mechanism And this in part has to do with history but also in part with the nature of music And you start from the beginning somebody writes notes the melody to a song someone perhaps the same person perhaps somebody else writes lyrics to go with that That combination of musical notes and lyrics is often published as sheet music that sheet music then can be played live to audiences For example in a ballroom by an orchestra or it can be recorded onto an LP CD and the other digital medium and listen to at a person's convenience So you have these multiplicity of ways that music can be you And that requires several different types of licenses because there are several different copyright components The first one is known as a mechanical license Mechanical license has to do with the copyright in the underlying composition The musical notes and the lyrics So if I am a band and I want to call it a song of say Led Zeppelin which is copyrighted I would have to obtain a mechanical license in order to use their composition If however as part of perhaps a hip hop piece I want to sample a few sections from a Led Zeppelin song And then add to those samples my own composition what I need is known as a master license which is a right to use the actual recording of the music that Led Zeppelin did To make things even more complicated if you're a radio station you need to obtain a public performance license which they third type of license for Musical recordings And after the music modernization act we now have digital streaming services and they have to get completely separate license provided under the MMA which to refer to as a blanket license Where does the spoken word fit into this The copyright regime I just described grew up in a musical context not in the context of spoken words And yet what is the comedy recording It is spoken word And we now have a culture in which thanks to streaming services and podcasts The marketplace for the spoken word is surging and people who have copyrights in the spoken word who previously never even gave much of a thought to enforcing the copyrights now see that we have this new marketplace in which the spoke horn is very valuable and see an opportunity to make money off of that By now for the first time enforcing their copyrights And at the cutting edge of this are the comedians and these lawsuits that have been filed by them in California Let me ask you this just on a pure copyright kind of analysis Is a joke a comedian tells the same as a song that someone writes because you often hear people say oh he stole my joke You know you tell the same joke in a different way Is it like lyrics or is it unlike lyrics So in theory it is likely There is the story of Bob Hope one of the most prolific joke riders of all time who kept all these jokes on the three by 5 index cards and had this massive catalog in collection of.

Teen Girl Killed by Stray Bullet in Los Angeles Police Shooting
"14 year old girl was killed. Accidentally by the LAPD they responded to calls of a man with a gun beating a woman who apparently was a shopper. The man turned out not to have a gun. He was hitting her, however with a like, what do you call those things, mister McConnell, would you lock your bike up? And it's got like a lock on it, bike lock. Bike lock, and it was making a sound that sounded to people calling 9-1-1 like gunshots. So when the police arrived, they assumed that the suspect had a gun. But he was striking this woman. You saw blood on the floor of the department store. He looked like he was hitting her in the face. Brutally, so the police show up and they shoot him. One bullet hits the floor ricochets through the wall and kills a 14 year old girl in a dressing room. The family of the teen has already gotten a lawyer Ben crump who's become kind of the Johnny Cochran of today. And in an article by an art by news organization called news one, which is, I believe, a black publication. They refer to the shooting as reckless.

You could have done that instead of having all these heavy messages in here we could have had just some cameos like that moment With a not so happy where maybe people ask about then brings up a discussion. That's cool what what you know. It's interesting because i brought this up with i now. I don't want to compare this movie to twenty twenty one. But you have all these filmmakers.

"ben crump" Discussed on 90.3 KAZU
"Degrees in Monterey and 78 degrees in Santa Cruz. Time now is for a six This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles and I'm Ari Shapiro in Washington. One year ago, the Minneapolis Police Department put out a statement saying Man dies after medical incident during police interaction We now know that death was a murder. Former officer Derrick show even kneeled on the neck of George Floyd for more than nine minutes, and that killing sparked a global movement for racial justice. Ben Crump is the attorney who represents George Floyd's family and many other families of black people killed by police. And he joins us to discuss this anniversary. Welcome back to all things considered good to have you here. Thank you very much for having me, Ari. How are you thinking about this day this anniversary. Well. You look at the progress we've made, But you reflect how much progress we have yet to make. You think about all the black people were killed at the joint floor was tortured to death. Oh, may 25th 2020 And you scratch your head and you say I thought we have reached a tipping point in America. Finally, they would stop killing us unjustly. I think like any journey to justice. We've made progress. We took steps forward. Obviously there've been some back steps, but I think we're moving forward. Well, one of those steps forward was the conviction. Derrick Show Vin being found guilty of murder. I last spoke to you the morning after that verdict came down. Have you seen any ripples from that guilty verdict in the months since I have I have seen back and Andre Hill, who was killed in Columbus, Ohio. His case has moved forward, the attorney general Is very vigilant on making sure that they zealously prosecute that case now because I think In many ways, the Derrick Show Open trial re involved in the killing of George Ploy was a new precedent in Dre. Heels case. You also have another officer that Pierce The blue Wall of silence on no sense that conviction. The prosecutors in Houston for Pamela Turner, unarmed black woman who was Shot in the face and the chance and in the stomach and his own video that the prosecutors are now going was Ellis Lee and prosecuting that case, And yet for every one of the examples that you cite Where there is accountability. There's a case like Elizabeth City, North Carolina, where there will not be charges brought against police for fatally shooting a black man. Yeah, and that does you We have work to do because it Andrew Brown, who was driving away from the police, and they shot him in the back of the brain. Or, like Anthony McClane and Pasadena, California. Who was running away from the police literally ran out of his shield, and they shot him twice in the back, killing him or treatment. Pellerin and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, who was shot in the back, or Jacob Black Junior could notion Wisconsin who was shot in the back, why going away seven times and paralyzed him or Dijon Kanzi? Was shot in the back, and Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy already Brooks, who was shot back all of these opposed George Ploy. All of these happened in 2020. So I guess the question is, Are we seeing one step forward two steps back, or we seeing two steps forward one step back, I think was here. Two steps forward one step back, because I do think that America is finally Having the conversation of a racial reckoning as it relates to police brutality on black people, and it's important to have the conversation. But talk is cheap. What we need is action, and that's why we need the United States Senate. Have passed it, George for Justice in policing that which will represent the first meaningful police reform legislation that we've had in America. And 57 years, President Biden wanted the George for Justice and Policing Act to pass in time for this anniversary that has not happened. Do you think there's still hope to pass this? Do. I have cautiously optimistic that we will get meaningful police reform and it has to be meaningful because George Lord's blood is on that legislation. Briana Taylor's blood is on that legislation. Jacob Break. Junior's blood is on that legislation and all the other names out name so it has to be meaningful and we didn't want to be a past. As Reverend Al. And I have often top justice State but a state we got a bill signed by his one year anniversary and then not have any substance to it. Reverend Al Sharpton. Yeah, I know. The Floyd family is meeting with the president of the White House tomorrow. What's their message for him? Where is real simple. They want to continue to define the legacy of Joyce Floyd, and they hope that he has a ally. We're joined them and defining that legacy so that it would be One a meaningful and respect but more importantly, that it could prevent Future unnecessary of justifiable and unconstitutional killings of black people in America. I'm just thinking of that long, long list of names that you gave us just a few minutes ago and the long history in this country of black people experiencing violence and death at the hands of police. And I wonder whether you think there is hope for a time that there are not any names on that list anymore. I mean, is that a reasonable hope? Absolutely. You know, there was a time in America where they say slavery would never end. We kept chipping away at it. There was a time in America where they say segregation would never had and we kept chipping away at it. And a lot of people say there never be a time in America, where black people will be treated equally and gently by police officers in America, but we keep chipping away at it. Every day. We can never lose hope for a better world for our Children. All the Children were be able to recite. With liberty and justice for all. No, that is means something that it's not just rhetoric. Attorney Ben Crump speaking with us on this anniversary of the death of George Floyd. Thank you very much. Thank you. All right. God bless you, brother. The European Union has called on all.

years our family been here three hundred but when they take the blues away their jobs are only becomes one overall at that point in time and as the constitution no you don't understand or they will send in social workers to Palestinians in the situation of making my community safe informing the police department years ago and and and the president is that they were going to look after the interests of the public now if they'd be fun if they take the police to raid if they started another program where they can't guarantee security in my home to my family they have eliminated forty years of gun advocate didn't go on gun control it is absolutely nothing at that point in time and we'll never win in court yeah well that's that's how the left works they disarm you and then they tell you that they're going to provide for you they take your job they ruin your job and then they tell you they're going to provide for you they want the government to be the parents to right everybody will resort right back to the exude to the original constitution protect your family protect you your property and protect yourself and when everybody's carrying a handgun I guarantee you want to talk about you want to talk about a problem as soon as they walk in somebody's brother at that point in time you don't call the police and the longer you shoot him right as you should there is some reason vacating your home if somebody's breaking into your home you have every right to do that I appreciate the call art it's a call for more in our key because more problems and more situations like that then will call for more government actions to the government the left has this amazing ability to make an S. insane argument and have some people believe it you know big government has failed us therefore we need bigger government the key issue there's a disconnect there what the real solution to the failure of big government is bigger government and most people look at an angle that doesn't really make any sense here us lifelong smoker and you've got lung cancer so the cure the treatment I recommend for you is is that you smoke more doesn't make any sense but they don't need to make sense we need to make an emotional appeal and that's a government will protect you yeah everybody in times of of of trauma they look for help they look for protection they want security and Democrats are they're offering it never minding the fact that they sort of helped create the problem in the first place against Democrat run city Democrat run state Democrat Attorney General Democrats everywhere around there there isn't a Republican in the time zone but well boy Howdy it's those Republicans fault and will protect you from Republicans do you see that a lot of times in the city we're going to keep doing the same thing well Hey is anybody really look at the the last twenty thirty forty years of Baltimore and go well what we really need is more of this now come in said we're gonna give you a new direction a new progressive direction we're gonna we're gonna move level of the whole field of candidates who just ran for mayor we're all pretty much offering the same thing which is what we've been offered and what we've had for a couple of generations now but when you know that there is no alternative why why bother even trying what we need is more of the same what will really get us out of this hole we dug ourselves into is a bigger shovel well that doesn't make any sense but there's no possibility on the face of the earth that anybody other than a Democrat is going to win this way here and then it was Brandon Scott has won the democratic primary that pretty much means he's gonna be the mayor we've just got to go through the formalities of a campaign why is there going to be a campaign why is he going to raise money why is he going to run ads and all of this and and have massive fundraisers because you can because you can we just had a mare kinda get into trouble for that she didn't really need to campaign all that hard but she wanted to sell some healthy holy books and that was the perfect cover if you'd know Brandon Scott isn't gonna write you know healthy Holly part two what he'll do is he'll have fundraisers and committees to do this that and the other thing and even though it's a foregone conclusion that he's going to be the next mayor at this point he can still raise all this money and maybe has aspirations beyond the city of Baltimore or just wants to be a power broker inside the city of Baltimore inside the state of Maryland that takes money so you milk the machine and you well aid fundraise this and fundraise that and he can sort of spend that money to raise his own power and visibility within the state it is with great insight and there's the same reason someone like Maxine waters someone like a Jerry Nadler New didn't pick any Republican you want to where they're going to win with eighty percent of the vote they still raise money why because they care let's grab the cake in private what do you what's the point of being a member of Congress Maxine waters will get seventy percent of the.

good officers can you when they see situations like this where another officer you know I say this I'm going to want to Minneapolis but when I when I when I you know what we call a good officer witnesses another officer doing something wrong or potentially dangerous and you know because it's that's what it goes deeper than just the one officer's actions other officers that need to speak up
