It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
What a week it is was, with enough copyright news to make even the staunchest veteran feel drunk and dizzy, this is a show that will definitely have an impact for a long time to come.
We have a major ruling in the MP3Tunes case, one that could affect nearly every other cloud service out there, a rejection of a settlement that could impact thousands of freelancers and some updates on Oracle/Google, Jammie Thomas and much, much more!
This week’s stories include:
- MP3Tunes Liable, But Scores Big Win for Others
- Freelancer/Newspaper Settlement Rejected
- Oracle Claims APIs May Be Copyrightable
- Jammie Thomas Case Returns, Again
- Zynga/Vostu Case Takes a Strange, International Twist
- Australian Police Dept. Hit With Massive Lawsuit
