It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It was an insane week for copyright news with one story dominating the headlines like no other, the new DRM circumvention exemptions. But while everyone was getting excited about jailbreaking their iPhones, other headlines were slipping under the radar including other, likely more important exemptions to the DRM circumvention law as well as several major updates to ongoing cases.
This week’s stories include:
- U.S. Copyright Office Announces DMCA Exemptions
- UFC Hits Back Against Illegal Streams
- Mass Bittorrent Lawsuits Target Private Trackers
- Authors Bypass publishers to Go Digital
- Bratz Dolls Back to Legal Limbo
- WordPress/Thesis Make Up
