Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 311 – Santa’s Going Nowhere

Santa Claus is Coming to Town ImageIt is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.

Though many think of this is as the most wonderful time of the year, for some, it’s anything but. Not only do we have another setback for the designer of the original Baltimore Ravens logo, but the Dungeons & Dragons lawsuit has somehow gotten even more spiteful and one unlucky file sharer in Sweden has been hit with a $625,000 fine for sharing a single film.

But there is some peace on earth as Weird Al settles his lawsuit against Sony and the U.S. Copyright Office says it wants to see resale royalties for artists left out in the cold. In fact, even some enemies are getting along as Aereo agrees with the TV networks that the Supreme Court should take up their case.

Just to complete the holiday spirit, we even get to talk about Santa Claus this episode. Though, this time it’s to discuss how his titular song isn’t leaving EMI, or copyright, for another 16 years.

This week’s stories include:

  • Aereo Says it Wants Supreme Court to Take Its Case
  • Ravens Can Continue Using Old, Infringing Logo in Context
  • Santa Claus is Coming to Town to stay with EMI
  • Dungeons and Dragons Lawsuit Takes a Strange Turn
  • Swedish File Sharer Ordered to Pay $625,000 After Leaking Unreleased Film/li>
  • U.S. Copyright Office Calls for Resale Royalties
  • “Weird Al” Yankovic Settles Sony Lawsuit
