Then in our “On the Blawgs” segment we feature a blog post about an infringement suit involving an 80’s guitar player and an NBA player.
Our interview segment is with Josh Roth of Eisner Kahan & Gorry, who talks with us about the street murals of Los Angeles and the recent attention they have been given by city legislators working to put in place a new ordinance to end the ban on artistic murals.
We then wrap-up with our “In the News” segment featuring a story from Thomson Reuters News & Insight about the largest case of healthcare fraud in U.S. history.
