{AngFrankPodcast Show}: Social Media, Intellectual Property & The Curious Case of Jalaiah Harmon vs. Charli d’Amelio (and Matthew A. Cherry).

Jalaiah Harmon made up the dance.

….Charli d’Amelio made off with the money:


Curious question (for women and especially black women who have been doing their daughter’s hair since the beginning of time):

What did you feel about Matthew A. Cherry winning an Oscar for writing a book about doing his daughters hair-and the big sensation, praise, and accolades bestowed upon him for such a “normal” thing?

When it comes to:

  • marketing
  • advertising
  • publicity


  • intellectual property (patents and copyrights)

…the reward (patent/copyright) is given for what’s “non-obvious” and atypical.

Well. A man creating a sensation is just that.

And well, so is a white girl doing a black girl’s dance…

In this epi of AngFrankPodcast Show, we discuss (what seems like) a fine line between intellectual property law and social media. Yet, the laws, rules and reasons why are more clear than we’re willing to accept.

Learn how and what, if anything you can do about it.
