It is Monday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
Due to the long weekend it was a rather slow week for copyright news but don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s going to be a short show. Patrick and I both have a few “rant box” moments as we discuss the week’s news including The Pirate Bay’s sale, Jammie Thomas’ appeal and even an ugly catch-22 in music copyright law.
All in all, there were thirteen stories this week including news from all over the copyright world including our “Weird Story of the Week”.
This week’s stories include:
- Pirate Bay Sells, Users Revolt
- RIAA Wins Big over Usenet.comr
- J.D. Salinger Gets His Injunction
- Bing Accused of Plagiarism
- Music Copyright Education Deals with a Catch-22
- And Many more…
