Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 317 – Registration Revocation

Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 317 – Registration Revocation

Key Systems LogoIt is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.

We’re finally back on a normal schedule and that means, well, it’s never really a normal episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.

For one we have news that a German Court has ordered a site to have their domain revoked over copyright infringement, we say the word “Dallas” far more than two adults should in a single conversation and an Apple-oriented theme gets an Android app in hot water.

Then things get really confusing as Frank Ocean is sued over a sample case worthy of being featured in “Inception” and a proposed compulsory remix license has drawn more than a little bit of criticism from musicians.

Finally, we get a preview of what Warner/Chappell is likely going to make its defense around in the “Happy Birthday” case and we have yet another dumb copyright infringer as The Academy takes a maker of “Oscar” statues to court.

All of this and more on Episode 317 of the Copyright 2.0 Show!

This week’s stories include:

  • German Registrar Ordered to Revoke H33T’s Domain
  • Dallas Buyer’s Club Prompts BitTorrent Lawsuit
  • Apple Files Takedown Notice Against Android Theming App
  • Frank Ocean Sued Over Sample of a Sample of a Sample of a Sample
  • Compulsory Remix License Draws Fire From Steven Tyler and More
  • Warner/Chappell Claims Words and Music of “Happy Birthday”
  • Film Academy Sues Man for Continue to Make Fake Oscars
