It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It was a week of controversy in the copyright world with a letter from ASCAP sparking a war of words between the organization and various copyleft groups. Likewise, a debate between a Canadian Minister turned ugly after some choice words and several artists found themselves accused of plagiarism.
Perhaps most controversial of all we end the show on the tale of two naked cowfolk trying to make their name.
This week’s stories include:
- ASCAP Attacks Creative Commons, EFF
- Canadian Copyright Debate Turns Ugly
- Time and Politico Republish a Rolling Stone Article
- Kanye West and Drake Both Sued for Copyright Infringement
- Naked Cowboy Threatens Naked Cowgirl
