One of the great things about Podcasting is that once a show is produced, it stays on the Intnernet forever. Or at least until the owner decides to take it down. I've lost track of how many times someone has emailed me to tell me that they've stumbled across a show of ours, and then downloaded all or a number of our previous shows. It's a big advantage over the "broadcast once" model of traditional main steam media.
There's a double-side to that, however. TV Squad is reporting that the current American Idol Taylor Hicks, for example, is having to sue one of his former producers to stop him from posting some of Hick's earlier works on iTunes.
According to The Smoking Gun, American Idol winner Taylor Hicks filed a lawsuit against a former Nashville music producer who is selling Hicks' older songs on iTunes. The songs are from 2001, when Taylor tried and failed to get music labels to pick him up.
Sometimes that little Internet trail we leave behind us can cause troubles.
