Download the podcast

This edition of the Podcast deals with the technological and legal issues relating to the recent phenomenon known as “RSS hijacking” or “podjacking.” I talked with Rick Klau, Vice President of Business Development of Feedburner about what RSS hijacking is, and what can be done about it. I then talked with Chicago attorney Kevin Thompson, who has written about RSS feed hijacking on his weblog Cyberlaw Central, and asked him to comment on the possible legal causes of action a victim of RSS hijacking might have in a potential lawsuit.
