It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
With the holidays upon us in full force, it might seem like copyright news would be slowing down and there’d be less to talk about. However, we’d also be wrong. Not only do we have a major non-ruling from the Supreme Court but a major Appeals Court ruling as well. We also have an “Anonymous” arrest in the Netherlands and much, much more.
This week’s stories include:
- SCOTUS Rules on Costco Case, Says Nothing
- Appeals Court Upholds Ban on World of Warcraft Bot
- Anonymous’ IRC Operator Arrested
- Righthaven Sues Drudge Report
- George Clinton Sues the Black Eyed Peas
- Irish ISP Offers Carrot and Stick to “Pirate” Customers
