It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
There’s a recurring theme this week of things either coming back from the dead, trying to come back from the dead or looking at issues that people thought were dead. A strangely fitting theme as we get closer and closer to Halloween.
This includes an appeal that could resurrect the Viacom/YouTube lawsuit, the U.S. Copyright Czar being “cozy” with copyright holders during a critical time and the Time Zone Database being brought back to life after being shutdown due to a lawsuit.
All in all, this is one episode that you do not want to miss!
This week’s stories include:
- Viacom and YouTube Have Appeal Heard
- Copyright Czar “Cozy” with Copyright Holders Leading up to “Six Strikes”
- Michelle Bachmann Joins Chorus Opposing PROTECT IP
- Jail Sentence Confirmed for Pirate Bay Founder
- Time Zone Database Returns Thanks to ICANN
- Much, Much More!
