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 should have been a slow week for copyright news but, in truth, it was nothing of the sort. Not only do we have a lot of great copyright news including updates on the Google/Oracle case and Google pulling the curtains back on its DMCA process, but this is also one of *those* shows where we have an important anchor story that takes up the bulk of our time.
This go around, the story involves a photographer who filed a DMCA notice against a lawyer’s site only to have the situation explode into not just a public battle and degenerate into conspiracy theories and legal threats.
All in all, this is one episode you do not want to miss.
This week’s stories include:
- Google Defeats Oracle on Patent Issues
- Google Publishes Stats on DMCA Notices, their Filers and their Targets
- Dish Network Sued Over Commercial Skipping
- Google Wins YouTube Case in France
- NBC Takes Down Video Used on The Tonight Show
- Photographer Sends DMCA, Gets Threatened
