Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 169

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 stories that needed the somewhat-expert analysis of myself and Patrick including a new bill before the Senate to block “pirate” websites, a series of denial of service attacks against various pro-copyright sites and an update on the Swedish Pirate Party to just name a few.

In addition to the stories, we took time out to go over my 4 most common mistakes the MSM makes regarding copyright. Also, a big thank you goes to David Sanger for helping the show with some great statistics and to all of those who were in the chat!

This week’s stories include:

  • New U.S. Bill May Shutter/Block Pirate Sites
  • 4Chan Launches DDOS Attacks Against MPAA and RIAA
  • BluRay DRM is Cracked
  • iviTV Launches Preemptive Strike, Sues Media Companies
  • Swedish Pirate Party Suffers Election Disappointment
  • Chinese Video Sharing Site Strikes Deal with Sony
