Eps 217 – SOPA Soap

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

Since I was off most of the week on hiatus for my haunted house, I had a lot of catching up to do and it was not a slow week to do it in. We had a new piece of legislation introduced in Congress, the MPAA getting its final win over Zediva and the U.S. Copyright Office giving us a special look at what we’ll likely be talking about over the next two years of the Copyright 2.0 Show.

All of this as well as two additional updates on Righthaven and an update on New Zealand’s “Three Strikes” law.

This week’s stories include:

  • Stop Online Piracy Act introduced in the House
  • Movie Studios Kill Off Zediva
  • U.S. Copyright Office States Its Priorities Through 2013
  • U.S. Marshalls Ordered to Seize Righthaven Assets
  • Righthaven Faces Another Judgment Against It
  • Much, Much More!
