It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It was a bit of a slow week for copyright news as we enter the final weeks of summer. However, that doesn’t mean there was any shortage of topics to talk about from. Not only do we discuss the latest in copyright news, including the latest on the U.S. Copyright Group, Grooveshark and a major win for the GPL, but also a bit about SXSW, we take a listener’s question on domains and trademark and I talk about the evil present my parents got my for my 30th birthday.
This week’s stories include:
- U.S. Copyright Group Withdraws Suits, Moves to Phase 2
- Grooveshark Secures Another Deal
- GPL Gets Major First U.S. Victory
- Katy Perry/Beach Boys Blow Up Blown Out of Proportion
- Gawker Pays McSteamy
- Photog Sues GoDaddy for $100 Million
