It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
With the long weekend in the U.S., one could be forgiven for thinking that this would be a slow episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show. But, as usual the international community stepped up with a major change to “three strikes” in France and a controversial site raid in Sweden.
But the Americans weren’t exactly slacking either. The Prenda Law saga takes yet another soap opera worthy turn and the Aereo drama continues as well as a Boston TV station decides to open up yet another front in the case.
All of that and this episode doesn’t end until we’re talking about a statue of a gorilla painted to look like Freddie Mercury.
You are definitely in for a bizarre and action-packed show to say the least!
This week’s stories include:
- France Changes “Three Strikes” and Ends Disconnections
- A Fan-Made Subtitle Site is Shuttered
- Former Prenda Lawyer Flips and Speaks Against His Employers
- Boston Broadcaster Sues Aereo
