It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
This week is a doozy as half of our show is taken up with news straight from the Supreme Court itself. We have a ruling in the Kirtsaeng textbook case, the end of the line for Jammie Thomas-Rasset and similar bad news for iviTV.
But the fun doesn’t end there, we have another major update in the Dish Network case surrounding the “Hopper” DVR, The Register of Copyrights calling for an all-new copyright act and even Zorro gets thrown in there as a playwright challenges his copyright status.
All of this and more on a very jam-packed episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
This week’s stories include:
- Supreme Court Rules Against Publishers in Kirtsaeng Case
- Jammie Thomas-Rasset Has Supreme Court Appeal Denied
- As Does iviTV
- Dish Network Responds to Allegations Over Hopper with Sling
- Register of Copyrights Wants a Whole New Copyright Act
- Prenda Lawyers Called to Appear in Court Again
- Playwright Questions if Zorro is Public Domain or Not
