Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 175

King of Diamonds

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

This was a busy week for copyright news and, even without the burden of catching up on three weeks worth of new Patrick and I found ourselves struggling to get caught up on all the happenings. We started off with an unplanned update on the Cooks Source case, possibly the last, and then circled the world looking for the latest, greatest and strangest copyright news we could find.

This week’s stories include:

  • Cooks Source Apologizes Again, Closes Doors
  • Final Draft of ACTA Released
  • FBI Probing “Anonymous” DDOS Attacks
  • University to Report File Sharers to Police?
  • Did George W. Bush Plagiarize His Book?
  • We Have a New Copyright Litigation King
