Eps 213 – Supreme Topics

SCOTUS SealIt is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.

We have a very “Supreme” themed episode this week with two stories focusing on the highest court in the U.S. Those stories include a case the Supreme Court will be hearing and one they won’t be taking (thus letting the lower court ruling stand).

We also have an update on the NinjaVideo admins and their criminal case as well as an interesting ruling regarding the DMCA and DVD ripping.

All of that and we end on this crazy question: Is Amazon’s new Silk browser is copyright infringing?

This week’s stories include:

  • Supreme Court to Decide if Works Can be Plucked From Public Domain
  • Supreme Court Says Digital Downloads are NOT a Public Performance
  • Another NinjaVideo Founder Pleads Guilty
  • Judge Says DVD Ripping OK if You Legally Own Them
  • Canada Revisits Copyright Reform
  • EU Fans Find Way to Watch Soccer Cheaply
