Today's podcast (MP3) discusses the sometimes uneasy relationship between bloggers and employers, as well as the corollary: how bloggers can improve the sometimes uneasy relationship between businesses and the world. I also check in on the continuing discussion concerning RSS and commercial or other unlicensed use, plug an event that hopes to turn lawyers into innovators, congratulate someone who's making the Technorati Top 100 safe for plawdcasters, and thank Doc (again).

- Russell Beattie: "I've come to the conclusion that since commercial search engines and aggregators don't charge for the content they serve, they should not be subject to non-commercial licenses or general copyright infringement." Russell wonders about RSS use restrictions in the same post: "If the RSS license *required* you to allow syndication of that content for personal and commercial services in order to use that format, this would solve many of these problems."
