This is no April Fool’s joke, it is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
If you’re in the mood for a completely joke-free conversation about copyright law then this is the podcast for you (Well, a few jokes but none on you). We have a lot of news to go over including a major victory for those who want to mass-litigate against pirates, Amazon launches a new cloud streaming service and Righthaven manages to file a lawsuit over an article about one of their lawsuits, nearly causing the universe to implode.
All in all there were eight stories this week including:
- Washington Judge OKs Mass P2P Lawsuits
- Amazon Launches Cloud Music Streaming, Sans Label Permission
- Zediva Gets Creative with DVD Streaming
- Righthaven Embarrasses Itself
- EMI and Bluebeat Settle
- Much, Much More!
