Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 150

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

It is our second week with our “longer story” format and we have a lot of great news for you. There’s an update to the Global Grind case, a major plagiarism controversy and perhaps the most meta copyright infringement ever.

All delivered with our usual mix if reporting, in-depth discussion and humor. It’s a show that, hopefully, is as entertaining as it is thought-provoking and informative.

This week’s stories include:

  • Global Grind Stops Scraping
  • A Plagiarism Controversy Shakes a Major Art Contest
  • RapidShare Scores a Big Win in Germany
  • Can You Pirate a Pirate Ship?
