The Grid Season 2 Premiere with Special Guest Joe McNally!

Hey gang, Brad here again, letting you know about the Season 2 premiere of our popular talk show, The Grid.

Tuesday, June 28 at 12:00 noon Eastern

Scott Kelby, Matt Kloskowski, and special guest Joe McNally


That’s right, we’ll have the one and only Joe McNally in the studio to help bring in the new season!

As always, you can join the discussion on Twitter with the hashtag #thegridlive, and in the live chat on the show page. Hope to see you there!

  1. Will this episode be rated PG-14 like the Jay Maisel and Moose Peterson episodes? Joe’s sure to use some “colorful” language! :D


  2. I am on deadline on Mondays with our newspaper but my routine is to now give myself an hour break, get some Chinese food, sit back and relax (and keep my hashtag key at the ready)

  3. And for us Europeans that really can not figure you time terminology out…

    “Eastern” refers to EST or EDT? The show is on GMT – 4?

    Looking forward to the show anyway! =)

  4. I watched this episode today with interest — particularly the section on copyright and photographers.

    What a coincidence that on the same day I saw this discussion on The Grid, I cam across this wedding video:

    It’s basically a wedding video set over a song by the Black-Eyed Peas. When asked how he handled the licensing, this is what the photographer had to say:

    “Joran Maaswinkel
    Very COOL, well done!! Just wondering, don’t you get trouble with the record company of BEP?

    David Robin
    Not a peep! They only come after you if they can make a lot of money. I’m just a wedding guy, and there are also laws for fair use of music in a parody video.”

    This David Robin guy has apparently won all kinds of awards. As you can see, this video has been seen 780,000 times, and has actually appeared on TV. The world loves him!

    My question is — is he right? Can I just label my wedding videos as “parody” and gain access to the entire musical library of Western Civilization? Is it really a reasonable argument that “they only come after you if they can make a lot of money?”

    I think this would be a great follow-up to your previous segment on photo theft. Because photographers stealing musicians work is only one step better than people stealing photographers work, right? How can we protect our own copyright interests, when we so flagrently violate others?

    Or am I completely misinformed, and David is right — what he is doing is absolutely right? Because if it is, I think there are a lot of photographers out there chomping at the bit to use some better music than that buyout stuff for their slideshows and videos!
