Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 323 – Common Sensically

Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 323 – Common Sensically

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

As we approach the holiday weekend in much of the world, one would think that the copyright news would be slowing down but, as we’ve learned time and time again, the train just keeps on coming.

We have news that the Authors Guild has appealed the Google Book Search ruling, RIAA joining the movie studios in suing Megaupload and news that Kim Dotcom may be getting some of his stuff back.

In other news the Jack Kirby estate is asking the Supreme Court to look at their copyright termination dispute and the Netherlands has outlawed file downloading after an EU court ruled against them. All of that and we have the story of Judge Posner and the “Banana Lady”, which is a strange tale to say the least.

All of that and much more on this, Episode 323 of the Copyright 2.0 Show!

This week’s stories include:

  • Authors Guild Appeals Google Book Search Case
  • Record Labels Follow Movie Studios, Sue Megaupload
  • As Warrant Expires, Kim Dotcom May Get Possession Back
  • Jack Kirby Estate Asks Supreme Court to Intervene in Comic Book Battle
  • Judge Rejects MGM’s Request to See “Section 6″ Script
  • Netherlands Forced to Outlaw Illegal Downloading
  • Banana Lady Loses Appeal, May Be Ordered to Stop Suing
