Legal TV

Yesterday IPKat co-bloggie Jeremy visited the Birmingham (England, not Alabama) premises of Legal TV, a bright young television station that first went on air earlier this year and which seeks to provide a variety of programmes and services for a mixed audience of lawyers, clients and students. The typical viewer will probably not be a couch potato but will be indulging in a little streaming while sitting at his PC or laptop.

Apart from the programmes themselves, Jeremy also takes an interest in the channel's terms and conditions: what do they have to say about intellectual property? He found the following:

The IPKat is glad to see that so many issues are addressed, so succinctly too. He's curious, though to see if any of his readers can spot any interesting omissions. Email your responses to the IPKat here. The best answers will be posted on this site in due course.
