It’s Friday and that means it’s time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
It was a crazy week for copyright news and, to keep this show under an hour, we had to cut out a lot of good and important stories. However, what’s left behind is a collection of the most important and most interesting pieces of copyright news.
We have a ruling on Joel Tenenbaum’s appeal, an important update on the Google Book Search case and another possible nail in Righthaven’s coffin, just to name a few. We also have a major political reversal in the UK and a potentially large Pirate Party victory in Germany.
All in all, this is one episode you don’t want to miss.
This week’s stories include:
- Tenenbaum Loses Appeal, Original Damages Stay in Effect
- Google, Publishers and Authors Get More Time in Book Search Case
- Righthaven Faces an Asset Seizure
- SAP Settles Criminal Complaint in Oracle Case for $20 million
- German Pirate Party Wins Big in Berlin’s Local Election
- Much, Much More
