Everything is a Remix and that’s OK – Law & Wit Episode 42

I know you’re used to hearing a bunch of lawyer-like topics from me, but I’m going to take some time to talk about the business of creativity. I did a special episode of the podcast in order to cover this topic that you can check out below. The title of this post might have you thinking this is counterintuitive to what an attorney would cover. After all, I recently did a podcast on protecting your brand, copyrights, trademarks, and overall how to protect your stuff.


In this episode of the Law & Wit podcast, host Brittany Ratelle goes a little off the path of legal topics to share an important message for all creators. While there is a time and place for copyright and trademark, there is also a place for understanding that in a sense, everything is a remix and that’s OK.

This message is helpful for both new creative entrepreneurs that are struggling to get started because they think all businesses have been done already, and those that have had something they’ve created ripped off.

In this episode you will learn:

  • Why you need to watch your influences and sometimes step away from them entirely
  • The importance of knowing your WHY and building your brand
  • 5 Things you can choose to think when something you created is copied
  • When you should draw the line in the sand
