From the Canadian firm Heenan Blakie, Entertainment & Media Law Signal is a recently launched blog that provides information and observations on the newest developments in entertainment and media law. Two members of the firm’s Entertainment Law Group, Bob Tarantino and Paul Chodirker, serve as its editors and several others are contributors.

“Though we’re Canadian,” Tarantino writes in an e-mail, “we think U.S. readers might find it of interest as well.” No doubt they will, as the blog covers a wide range of entertainment law issues and is international in its scope. Recent posts discuss a federal court copyright ruling out of New York, the IP and licensing rights of the Chilean miners, and a ruling on music downloading from the High Court of Ireland.
