Note: Due to an editing problem and time constraints, last week’s Copyright 2.0 Show, episode 191, was not uploaded to the site. It will be available next week. I’m very sorry for the delay. In the meantime, here’s this week’s show!
It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It was a major week for copyright news as we have yet another jury ruling in the ongoing Bratz case, one that complete reverses the first such ruling. We also have copyright and other concerns over the recent PSN outage and Dropbox going toe to toe with an open source project that exploits their hashing system.
However, the big news this week was Patrick’s recent trip to see Diddy live as part of his “Dirty Money” tour and the strangely copyright-centric focus the trip took. Definitely a story worth hearing.
This week’s stories include:
- MGA Gets Big Win in Bratz Case
- Did Jailbroken PS3s Cause the PSN Hack and Outage?
- Dropbox Tries to Drop DropShip
- Anonymous Threatens New Zealand Parliament, Maybe
- Publishers Seize Public Domain Music Resource
- Much, Much More!
