It was an exciting week for copyright news as we have a new, controversial nominee for Solicitor General in the U.S., the End of the ACS:Law litigation campaign, a massive lawsuit that could impact streaming video sites and a novel new approach to handling pirates (that isn’t very likely to work).

- Obama Administration Nominates Former RIAA Attorney for Solicitor General
- ACS:Law Calls it Quits
- UFC Sues Justin.TV
- Movie Studio Asks File Sharers to Turn Themselves In
