Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 178

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

Things are starting to slow up a bit for copyright news as the holidays approach and things get a little more quiet in the courts across the world. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have a great show lined up with updates on the Viacom/YouTube case, the U.S. Copyright Group and a flashback for Patrick and I as we go back (to the past) to talk about circumventing game lock out devices on systems past.

This week’s stories include:

  • Viacom Appeals YouTube Case
  • U.S. Copyright Group Drops 1000s of Lawsuits
  • iCopyright Sues Former Partner AP
  • XBox Modding Case Dropped
  • Wikileaks Exposes U.S. Involvement in Spanish Copyright Law
  • LimeWire to Close
  • Avast Gets Creative With Piracy
