It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
The summer heat isn’t slowing down copyright news as the courts keep on churning out the rulings and new laws keep coming online. However, this week we also have a couple of interesting opinion pieces that ask how the war against piracy is really going and where it may be heading.
All in all, this is not a show you want to miss.
This week’s stories include:
- Zediva Shuts Down, Lays Off DVD Monkeys
- BBC Says Stupid Things About Copyright
- First Sale? Not if It’s Made Abroad.
- New Zealand “3 Strikes” Kicks In
- Beating Piracy or is a Comeback Due?
- Mattel and Jack Kirby Heirs Appeal
