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 both UK ISPs and 80s hair metal bands as the UK ISP BT is now ordrered to block the site Newzbin2 and also draws fire for its resistance to the Digital Economy Act. Meanwhile, across the pond, the 80s band Poison is accused of plagiarism, about 30 years after the fact, and Justin Beiber finds himself the unwitting star in a new campaign to protest impending copyright legislation.
This week’s stories include:

- Two More NinjaVideo Admins Plead Guilty
- Sylvester Stallone Accused of Plagiarism in Expendables movie
