Friday Monday 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 bit of a slow week for copyright news but don’t let that fool you, there’s still a lot of important stories to be found in this week’s episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show. We have a new copyright sheriff in town, a pair of major blows to the Bittorrent piracy cases and even some news from Weird Al.
This is definitely one show that you do not want to miss!
This week’s stories include:
- Center for Copyright Infringement Founded, Staffed and Ready to Send Warnings
- Bittorrent Plaintiffs Suffer Setbacks in Two States
- Paramount to Rent Movies Via YouTube and Google Play
- NBC Accused of Ripping Off Apple
- Weird Al Sues His Label for Royalties
- Viral “Bohemian Rhapsody” Video Sparks Copyright Brawl
