Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 279 – Booted Out

Italy Map

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 copyright news with a theme of suspected pirate sites struggling to find a stable port to call home as 27 file hosts are blocked in Italy and The Pirate Bay is kicked out of Greenland within 48 hours of arriving.

Also, Spain is apparently working on new legislation to make it a less-favorable home for copyright-infringing sites and even the United States is sending a message with yet another criminal sentence handed down in the IMAGiNE case.

All of that and the latest on Aereo, Spiderman and more!

This week’s stories include:

  • UK Supreme Court Rules Browser Caching Not an Infringement
  • The Pirate Bay Moves Domain to Greenland, Loses it Quickly
  • Rome Prosecutor Orders 27 Domains Blocked for Copyright Infringement
  • IMAGiNE Group Founder Sentenced to 23 Months
  • Spain Considering New Copyright Legislation
  • TV Broadcasters Re-Appeal Aereo Ruling
  • Producers of Spiderman Musical Settle Dispute with Former Director

There. Now you guys know one .gl site. It was the only one I could think of when I was working out.

That's a good one. I admittedly cheated on the .us domains (see recent article about repost.us). So I think you win that challenge...

hehe :)

I probably cheated too. A friend of mine and I use goo.gl to mask URLs of things that we don't want the other person to see before we accidentally click through on it. What good's a friend if you can't have pointless immature fun with him?
