Who is CopyComic, the masked avenger of humor?

Summary of the episode:

The videos of CopyComic are content to ask the question "coincidence or plagiarism"? But the answer, obvious, is hardly appreciated by the comedians pointed at, from Gad Elmaleh, to Jamel, through Tomer Sisley. The latter's wife recently claimed that two comics, Baptiste Lecaplain and Kheiron were hiding behind CopyComic, which they both denied.

Ben scrap remotely with Gad Elmaleh and his lawyer, who seek to get his identity from social networks, or the producer Kader Aoun. Despite these renowned opponents, the masked surfer is perhaps going to win his fight: which comic author would now dare to use his competitors?

This episode of the Code Source podcast is told by Sylvain Merle, journalist culture in Paris, at the microphone of Jules Lavie.
