It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It was a busy week for copyright news but one story seemed to reign over them all, the 82 domains seized by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement over Thanksgiving weekend. As Patrick, the official rap and hiphop correspondent at the Copyright 2.0 Show, and I attempt to make heads of tails of the seizure, we look at the sites involved, the cases against them and Patrick makes an interesting discovery about one of the rap domains that was taken down.
We also carved out some time to talk about other news including some updates about both The Pirate Bay and the U.S. Copyright Group.
This week’s stories include:
- ICE Seizes 82 Domains for Violating Intellectual Property
- Pirate Bay Founders Lose Appeal
- Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Harper Case
- U.S. Copyright Groups Sues Lawyer, Is Sued By Defendants
