Weekend Linkroll – 04-19-08

Pluggedin LogoIt was yet another busy week for copyright news with the music industry taking the spotlight in several cases, new services working to deliver music and video on demand, at least in the United States and Canada and Harry Potter’s author heading to court against one of her own fans.

We also have several new revelations from The Pirate Bay, including a new blogging service and new information about their case in Sweden, a plagiarism scandal at Lonely Planet and a duel between Yoko Ono and the movie “Expelled”.

Finally, in weird copyright news, we have an update to our story about the “plagiarizing” chef and a case where the RIAA sued a homeless man for infringement.

Remember, as usual, this week’s linkroll is a “raw” link list. Some stories are duplicated, some do not point to their original sources and some may not be accurate. A great deal of refining goes into producing the show notes for the Copyright 2.0 Show.
