It is Monday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It was a hectic week for copyright news last week with both a major merger and a mega lawsuit getting the Web buzzing. We also have a surprise from The Pirate Bay, a potential blunder from Yahoo! and much, much more. It’s definitely an episode you don’t want to miss.
Please note that there were some minor technical difficulties this week. I was recording in the middle of a very strong thunderstorm that can be heard during parts of the podcast as a hiss on the mic. It does clear up (as the skies did) later in the podcast.
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:
- Apple Buys Lala
- Canadian Record Labels Face Multi-Billion Dollar Lawsuit
- Yahoo! Files a Controversial Takedown Demand
- Bratz Get a Reprieve
- Google Makes Nice with the Record Industry
- And Many more…
