On Copyrights

So there’s a been a lot of bad hot takes lately about copyright and the public domain, and in the spirit of education and fun, I wanted to share this Planet Money Podcast series in which they attempt to license and merchandise a superhero character, which is edifying, funny, and takes a surprisingly poignant turn at the end of the third act.

I did not expect to tear up over an economics podcast.

Planet Money: We Buy A Superhero: Origins.

Planet Money: We Buy A Superhero: Loophole.

Planet Money: We Buy A Superhero: Resurrection.

I have a quibble or two here and there, but in general this is spot on and delightful.

Best,

Bear
