Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 167

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
