It is Monday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It was a busy week for copyright news with a flurry of stories raining down. We see the conclusion to one of the most important DMCA-related cases as well as one of the most controversial plagiarism cases. However, we also have new beginnings, including the start of a potentially heated copyright battle in the technology world. We also have some interesting news about Second Life and perhaps the most awesome DRM/forum response in the history of gaming.

- Veoh Wins Against Universal
- Skype Founders Sue eBay
- Coldplay and Satriani Settle
- More Bad News for the Potential Pirate Bay Buyers
- Batman Can Run, But He Can’t Glide
