Today's Legal Underground Word of the Week, Parody, is read by Shawn Milo, the producer of the MiloCast. You can hear the production as an MP3 or as a podcast by subscribing to this RSS feed with iPodder or a similar product.
What's the MiloCast? The MiloCast is a podcast currently released on openpodcast.org. It has two goals: To release audio versions of short stories and essays either in the public domain or with permission from the copyright holders, and to provide an outlet for Shawn Milo to participate in the podcasting community and give his opinion on various issues.
Why "parody"? Not only were there a couple of parodies this week on The Legal Underground, but parody sometimes gives rise to interesting legal disputes such as the one involving JibJab and Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land," ably documented on this site by guest-poster Abnu in his post "Parodies Buy the Dashboard Lights."
If you'd like to participate in my audio-blogging word-of-the-week project, simply choose a suitable word from Black's Law Dictionary, record yourself reading it, and then send it to me as an mp3, wav, or DSS file. I'll set it to music for the entire world to hear, and you can use it as a stepping stone to a mention on Robert Ambrogi's LawSites (though don't count on it).
