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

It was an exciting week for the Copyright 2.0 Show as we had some late-breaking news right before we went online to record when the summary judgement in the Viacom v. Google case was announced and the billion-dollar suit was tossed out.

However, we also had a slew of other great copyright news including a new anti-piracy policy by the U.S., another potential lawsuit against Google in the works and the dumbest cease and desist letter I’ve ever seen and much more.

This week’s stories include:

  • Google Beats Viacom, For Now
  • U.S. Announces New Copyright Plan
  • HTC Goes After ROM Hackers
  • DVD Sniffing Dogs?
  • Pork Board Takes on Unicorn Meat, Seriously

You can download the MP3 file here (direct download). Those interested in subscribing to the show can do so via this feed.

If you are interested in catching the show LIVE. You can join me and Patrick every Wednesday at 6 PM EST in our chatroom. You can listen, watch and comment on the live show and maybe get your thoughts on the air.
