It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It was a very busy week for copyright news with several major, breaking stories including file sharing raids all across Europe, a new leak of the ACTA treaty and more updates in the Righthaven lawsuits, including them suing a prominent Nevada politician. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t slow it down toward the end to grab a drink and, that is until someone accuses us of infringement for that too.
Just one of those weeks.
This week’s stories include:
- Righthaven Sues Nevada Senate Candidate Sharron Angle, Wants Domain
- File Sharing Raids Across Europe Target “Scene” Networks
- ACTA Leaked, ISP Liability Gone, DRM Protection Still In
- Google Loses YouTube Case in Germany, No Safe Harbor
- Can You Copyright a Cocktail?
- Woot and the AP Have a Spat
