In this episode, Denise and Stefan discuss how the EU's highest court had to wake up and taste the cheese to decide whether taste is copyrightable, and how the EU's copyright directive might be financially unfeasible even for YouTube.

The rise of Nanoinfluencers and CGI influencers, police seek Echo recordings in another murder case, and coming soon to California courts: algorithms deciding who gets out on bail.
