    I produce a podcast that is available online. The contents of the podcast is a typical old school radio show where I spin records from my collection. I think I might have a problem however since a good portion of the music on my program is commercial and copyrighted. I don't have a lot of listeners however. Am I safe from copyright infringement or should I change my format to material that does not involve commercial music? Thank you.

    Some people are very aggressive about enforcing trademarks, patents, and copyrights.

    Others are lackadaisical about pursuing any copyright, trademark, or patent enforcement protections.

    I think you know you potentially are sitting on several vials of TNT.

    Even if you change your actions, you still could be pursued.

    If this worries you, you might wish to spring for $500 and consult a licensed attorney in your area.
