Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 139

It is Monday Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.

That’s right, for this week, and likely from here on out, the show will be going up on Friday rather than Monday. With the new recording time, Wednesdays at 6:00 PM ET, which you can now watch live on UStream, I felt it was important to get the podcast up earlier so the news would be more relevant.

On that note, it was something of a slow week for copyright news but there was still some big updates to be found including an update from China and it’s leading search engine, Baidu, more on Google Book Search and even a little bit about the Super Bowl.

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:

  • Baidu Not Liable for Copyright Infringement
  • Revised Google Book Search Deal Faces Renewed Opposition
  • British Newspapers Find Copyright Trouble
  • Microsoft Goes After a Bittorrent Tracker
  • NFL Gives in on “Who Dat” Claims
  • And Many more…
