It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It was a busy week for copyright news as many of the industry’s biggest dramas slowly ground their way to a conclusion. For one, we are now closer to learning the eventual fate of Limewire, the now endangered file-swapping service, we also get some feedback on Canada’s new copyright law and even a webmaster take on Apple’s new version of Safari.
All in all, it was an action-packed week of copyright news as discussed with the usual lack of decorum that you expect from the Copyright 2.0 Show.
This week’s stories include:
- LimeWire Gets a (Short) Reprieve
- Canada’s New Draft Law Draws Praise and Criticism
- A Surprising Ruling on “Making Available” in the Netherlands
- The Ghost Hunters Win a Copyright Case
- Is Safari 5 a Copyright-Infringing Machine?
- And Many more…
