The “new again” orphan works legislation dominated this week’s copyright news, however, there were still plenty of other stories to cover.
We have multiple tales from the RIAA and their battle against file sharing, news that P2P is no longer the big bandwidth hog, Microsoft destroying DRM keys and a fashion designer suing a charity operation over a drawing of a handbag.
Finally, in weird copyright news, we have Professor Lessig drawing the ire of Rush Limbaugh over his tastes in mashups and watermarked art making its way to the cover of a brand- new Wii game.
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.
