It is Friday 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 but the big story this week was something of a rarity, the Supreme Court handing down a ruling in a copyright case. Even more important, it is a ruling that could potentially impact all copyright holders in a big way. There was also tons of other great news stories including Microsoft being caught in a DMCA tiff with Cryptome, another update on ACTA and much, much more.
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:
- The Supreme Court Saves a Major Settlement
- Microsoft Backs Down Over Cryptome Takedown
- Britain’s Digital Economy Bill Stirs More Controversy
- iiNet Case Far From Resolved
- Are We Safe From Rickrolls?
- And Many more…
