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 copyright news as we a have a ruling that could devastate the mass litigation tactic for dealing with p2p file sharing, Disney suing Dish Network for copyright infringement and Perfect 10 is giving copyright litigation yet another shot, this time against Giganews, the Usenet services company.
In addition to that, Patrick and I attempt to answer the question of whether Netflix is reducing piracy and we also get to take a look at some of the demands being made by the record labels on MP3 locker sites, such as Amazon Cloud Storage and MP3Tunes.
This week’s stories include:
- Judge Denies Subpoena, Says IP Address Not a Person
- DIsney Sues Dish Network Over Starz Freebie
- Perfect 10 Sues Again
- Canada Put on U.S. “Priority Watchlist” for Piracy
- U.S. Offered New Zealand Help in Drafting Copyright Laws
- Much, Much More!
