It is Monday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It was a slow week for copyright news, due largely to the shortened work week in the U.S. and Canada, but there was still a lot of great news stories including several major updates on the Google Book Search settlement, a pair of stories involving the celebrity photography Annie Leibovitz and a new replacement for the Internet viral sensation “Don’t Copy That Floppy”.
All in all, there were eleven stories this week including news from all over the copyright world including our “Weird Story of the Week”.
This week’s stories include:
- Google Book Search Makes Some Powerful Enemies
- Annie Leibovitz Escapes Losing Her Copyright
- Ellen’s TV Show Sued By Record Labels
- Rosetta Stone Settles Piracy Cases
- Don’t Copy That 2 Makes Noise
- And Many more…
