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 with, quite possibly, one of the most important settlements in recent copyright history and a possibly history-making copyright proposal in the U.K. There was also some news from France as its “Three Strikes” system gets put on hold due to hacking and we even hear some from Righthaven, who appears to be on the run from yet another counter-offensive.
That being said, we (meaning I) made one mistake on this week’s podcast. In our discussion of the Hargreaves report I said that it included a U.S.-style fair use provision when in truth it does not. I apologize for the error.
But despite the misstep, we still have a lot of great copyright news including the following stories:
- LimeWire Settles with the Record Labels
- Copyright Reforms Like on the Way in the U.K.
- HADOPI Firm Gets Hacked, France Suspends Anti-Piracy Activities
- Righthaven May Be Facing a Class Action Counterclaim
- A Copyright Levy on Memory Cards?
- Much, Much More!
