Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 166

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

Though the publication of this show was held up due to some weather-related issues, it’s definitely one you don’t want to miss. As we slide into the cooler months the copyright news inevitably begins to pick up as the courts reopen and lawyers return from their vacations. We have the latest news on the ACTA negotiations, some news from the Obama administration and two major copyright players taking on an ad network over its alleged support of piracy.

All in all, there were five copyright news stories this week and we took time to answer some copyright-related questions from our live audience.

This week’s stories include:

  • ACTA to Be Signed in September Say Negotiators
  • The Commerce Department Talks Tough on Piracy
  • Disney and Warner Sue Advertising Network
  • Righthaven Gets a New Customer
  • Google/AP Reach Deal to License AP Content
