It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It was a slammed week for copyright news and with Patrick back from his trip to the west coast we couldn’t waste a moment before diving on in to the news. We start out discussing the SAP/Oracle case, which saw criminal charges get filed and settled almost the same day, Hotfile pulls a bit of turnabout on Warner Brothers and the EU copyright extension that went through.
Then there was six more stories to go…
