Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 172

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

The theme this week seemed to be one of disappointment as negotiators for the U.S. were disappointed with ACTA, record labels were disappointed in Ireland and Creative Commons fans were disappointed by a new policy at the CBC. So feel free to get out your tissues and prepare to wipe away some (possibly crocodile) tears as the Copyright 2.0 Show takes you down to Heartbreak Hotel.

This week’s stories include:

  • Final Text of ACTA Leaked, U.S. Accused of Caving
  • Irish Court Strikes Down Three Strikes
  • Police Arrest Mulve Operator
  • CBC Ditches Some Creative Commons Works
  • Apple May Again be Working on Music Subscription Service
  • Some Rational Words from the MPAA, Some Less Reasonable Ones from Gene Simmons
