"Hollywood Blackmail" on VH1, tonight



VH1, the cable entertainment channel known for its music videos, is running a feature news special on the problem of shakedowns and borderline-to-real extortion aimed at Hollywood celebrities. The channel interviewed me on camera to talk about some of the ways law can be used both as a remedy for shakedowns and as, itself, a weapon in the hands of the would-be shakedown practitioner. Producer Robin Edgerton tells me that several bits of the interview wound up making it into the finished program. It's scheduled to air this evening under the title "VH1 News Presents -- Hollywood Blackmail" (cross-posted from Overlawyered).
