TWiL 443: Popularity Ponzi Schemes - Can you copyright the taste of cheese?

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. They also look at who must or should make disclosures; as in, "Is that a real metal band or are your paid bots just happy to see me?" 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.
