It was largely a week of celebration in the copyright world with a much-anticipated ruling coming down, word that the early Mickey Mouse cartoons may be in the public domain and the FCC holding Comcast’s feet to the fire.
However, there was a fair amount of bad news this week as well as the IFPI “three strikes” idea is gaining traction, Muxtape closes for mysterious reasons and a huge push is being made to spy on Internet traffic to look for copyright violations.
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.
