It was yet another crazy week for copyright news with yet more developments on the MPAA’s lawsuits against file sharing sites, more updates on copyright legislation and pointed IP opinions being thrown around.
We also have updates on the Google/Viacom case as well as a new independent group that becomes the fifth largest music rightsholder.
Also, in weird copyright news, we have a political leader that has been arrested in relation to a famous warez group, an engineer allegedly fired for his copyright opinions and plagiarized poetry at the Washington Post.
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.
