It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
With the holiday weekend in the U.S., it was a slow week for copyright news but that doesn’t mean Patrick and I got to rest any. We had several major developments in the U.S. Copyright Group legal battle with Time Warner Cable, the conclusion of the Men at Work case and a politician that doesn’t understand copyright isn’t a magic eraser.
This week’s stories include:
- Time Warner/U.S. Copyright Group Have to Work Together
- U.S. Copyright Group to Only Get 28 IPs Per Month
- Men at Work Get to Keep Most of Their Money
- Politician Complains About Her Old Viewpoints Being Repeated
- Hulu Launches a Plus Program
- Woot and the AP Have a Spat
Also, just a small programming note, we will NOT be having an episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show next week as we will both be taking a week off. You’ll instead get to listen to our failed attempts to get caught back up two week from today!
