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 the Copyright 2.0 Show as Patrick and I struggle to get caught up after a week away. There was a lot of news to cover including new legislation in the U.S., New Zealand and the Netherlands, updates in court cases for both Limewire and the U.S. Copyright Group and a big “Come At Me Bro!” from Amazon over its Cloud Player.
All in all, it was an action-packed hour of copyright news that you don’t want to miss!
This week’s stories include:
- U.S. Looks Again to Pass Domain Seizure Legislation
- New Zealand Passes Three Strikes
- Netherlands Seek to Outlaw File Downloading
- Former RIAA Lobbyist Judge Backs Off Some on Her Sweeping Ruling
- RIAA Gets Its Damages Limited Against Limewire (somewhat)
- Amazon Challenges Record Labels on Cloud Player Licensing
- Much, Much More!
