So Sue Us

Patents, piracy, probate, and prudence, jurisprudence on this week’s podcast. Please don’t take the title too seriously – on inThirty episode 56 we examine the red tape that’s been sticking to things all over Silicon Valley lately, and try, as only we three can, to cut through it. Apple sues Samsung, Google sues Apple, the RIAA sues Joe Schmoe and we take a look at the impact overall. We also try to figure out if you really can patent curved corners on rectangles.

Piracy on the High ISPs

Aye mateys! You know where more piracy takes place than off the Horn of Africa? The internet, and do you know who’s to blame? Well, we don’t know either but on this episode we walk the plank and try to figure it out. Do you want to know what special guest Kelly Guimont‘s favorite movie trilogy is (hint: it’s not Twilight)? Does Harry actually live in a glass house on Piracy Lane? How much brie does Justin eat? Listen in and find out. Oh, and feel free to copy this episode as many times as you’d like. Arrrrr.
