It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
This week’s news has a decidedly international flare but not before we cover some ground in the tech world, namely why it might be harder for your computer to get time and date information. Beyond that we have a major political party adopting the Pirate Party platform in the EU, an appeal of the Digital Economy Act in the UK and an update on how “three strikes” is working out in France. Just to name a few stories.
All in all, this is an episode that you do not want to miss.

- Copyright Suit Caused Date/Time Database Server to Go Down
- ISPs Get Clearance to Appeal Digital Economy Act
- EU Greens Adopt Pirate Party-Like Platform on Copyright Matters
