The Intellectual Property Colloquium is an online audio program devoted to intellectual property topics. We aspire to be something like an NPR talk show, but focused on copyrights and patents, and aimed primarily at a legal audience. Each show lasts one hour and features guests drawn from academia, the judiciary, and/or from technology and media companies. Lawyers who listen to the show can earn free CLE credit in California, New York, Texas, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Washington, New Hampshire and Florida. The Colloquium is produced through a partnership between the UCLA School of Law, the economic consultancy Compass Lexecon, and the technology firm Microsoft. It is hosted by UCLA Law Professor Doug Lichtman. Visit us on the web at

I hope more episodes get posted

Doug Lichtman gets very powerful figures in intellectual property like Chief Judge Michel and asks exceptional questions. I'm not a lawyer, I'm a small business owner on the Internet who is vexed by trying to understand what's happening to our industry wrt software patents and lawyer-inventors who invent patents instead of patenting inventions. I have no connection to the podcast other than stumbling across it by searching. I can't wait for more episodes.

No better way to earn free CLE credit!

As an attorney in a state with MCLE requirements, I often have to attend overpriced and -- frankly -- stupid seminars to earn CLE credits. The IP Colloquium podcasts are a wonderful departure from that wasteful approach to continuing legal education. The topics are interesting, the speakers are top notch, and Doug Lichtman does a very nice job of challenging the speakers to clarify and defend their positions. Keeps things lively. If you're listening for CLE, you simply take note of two "code words" that are doled out over the course of the hour. From there, you go to the ip colloquium website, put in the code words, your jurisdiction, your email address, and your bar number, and shortly you'll receive an attendance certificate. Portable, interesting and free -- what's not to like?

My only complaint is that there aren't more podcasts like it for other subjects.

As an art student...

I love this podcast. I've been interested in learning about copyright, intellectual property, VARA, and so on, and I couldn't have imagined finding something so fascinating. I've listened to almost every episode. The content is not over my head, despite the fact that I don't explicitly know the laws and specific sections, but neither is it dumbed down.
Please continue this podcast, it's a great one.
