Copyright Issues Halt Podcast

"A local radio pro has found out that distributing his program like an amateur isn’t as simple as it sounds.

"Chicago’s Steve Dahl thought he could be at the forefront of the so-called podcasting trend, which was virtually unknown a year ago.

"Last month he began making his WCKG-FM 105.9 afternoon show available online as a digital audio file, so those with iPods and other portable media devices can download them and listen at leisure around the world. He used the same new technology that enables computer users to make and distribute homemade programs.

"But this re-purposing of Dahl’s show has come to an abrupt halt because of copyright and royalty issues."
