While this summer has perhaps not brought the big headlines in trade press about copyright issues involving broadcasters – particularly in the area of music rights – there still are many issues that are active. webcasting and Internet radio).

A recent opinion from the California bar says that attorneys shouldn't be allowed to publicly discuss information about a client even if that information is publicly available. Whether or not that decision is wrong isn't quite the right question.
