Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 315 – Bazaar Lawsuit

Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 315 – Bazaar Lawsuit

Harpers Bazaar LogoIt is Friday Monday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.

Yes, it is an unusual day for a Copyright 2.0 Show but it was an unusual week for the two of us. Travel plans kept us both out of our respective states for an extended period of time, making recording impossible until, quite literally, the end of the day Friday.

Still, it was good to get caught back up. We had a lot to talk about as nearly two week’s worth of news had floated by in our absence. We’ve got a potentially explosive lawsuit as Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino sues Gawker and AnonFiles over a leaked copy of his script, Prince filing, and then dropping, a lawsuit against those linking to bootleg concert recordings and a truly bizarre take of Playboy suing Harper’s Bazaar.

But we also have some head scratchers this week as publishers sue the already-defunct cyberlocker Hotfile, a movie studio targets Fileserve, over a file it almost certainly didn’t host and Lil’ Kim’s camp blows the chance to resolve an infringement quickly, prompting a lawsuit.

However, also take time this episode to think of Superman and the fact that the lawsuit over his future, at long last, is likely at an end.

All in all, there’s no way we could fit everything we wanted into this episode but we sure tried making this an exciting edition you do not want to miss!

This week’s stories include:

  • Tarantino Sues Gawker and AnonFiles Over Leaked Script
  • Playboy Sues Harper’s Bazaar Over Kate Moss Link
  • Prince Sues 22 Site Owners and then Drops It Quickly
  • Book Publishers Sue Hotfile
  • Fileserve Sued for $870,000
  • Lil Kim Sued Over Zombie Photo
  • Warner Wins Likely Final Round in Superman Lawsuit
