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 have new controversial legislation coming out of the U.S., Google thumbing its nose at the record labels to launch its own cloud player without their approval and the largest copyright lawsuit ever moving forward, just to name a few of the stories.
However, despite all that, this week’s biggest story actually broke after recording was done for the show, namely the LimeWire settlement. We’ll have more on that in next week’s podcast.
That being said, this is definitely a show you don’t want to miss, especially since I’m one of five people that hadn’t seen the “Jack Sparrow” video by Lonely Island. If you’re one of the other holdouts, I’ve embedded it below so you can get caught up on your memes…
This week’s stories include:
- U.S. Congress Introduces Follow Up to COICA
- Google Subs Labels, Launches Music Beta
- LimeWire Founder Admits He Was “Wrong” On Copyright
- CBS and CNET Sued for Distributing LimeWire
- U.S. Copyright Group Gets Clearance to Sue Some 23,000 Defendants
- AC/DC Says No to Digital Downloads
