Capitol Chat Could Paul Ryan be the next Vice President of the United States of American? In this week's Capitol Chat, we'll see how California's delegates are spending their time in Tampa, Florida at the Republican National Convention and what they think of the speech given last night by Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan. Capital Public Radio's political reporter Matt Laslo fills us in from the Sunshine State. Plus, tomorrow is the end of session for the California State Legislature and it marks the deadline for California lawmakers to pass a number of new bills. Capital Public Radio government reporter Amy Quinton joins us from the Capitol Bureau to update us on their progress.

Intellectual Property Since Apple successfully sued Samsung for stealing copyrighted ideas like its pinch-zoom photo function, many legal analysts predict technology companies will become more careful about where they get their ideas from and how they express them. How do intellectual property laws affect you and when does sharing or borrowing ideas become stealing?  Madhavi Sunder is a law professor at UC Davis who has recently written a book on the topic, "From Goods to a Good Life: Intellectual Property and Global Justice." She explains how these laws can protect you from exploitation and inhibit your freedom. She is signing copies of her book today at UC Davis and tomorrow at the Avid Reader in Davis.
