It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
With the holiday in the U.S. there wasn’t a whole lot of local copyright news to talk about but, fortunately for this podcast, other countries rushed in to fill the void and bring us yet another packed episode of copyright news, views and abuse.
This includes a major ruling in the EU on the issue of ISP filtering, a plan from Australian ISPs to tackle piracy and concerns that Spotify may be heading for a day of reckoning as labels start to back out. All of this and much, much more!
This week’s stories include:
- Grooveshark Emails Released, Show Company Aware of Infringement
- EU Says ISPs Can’t Be Forced to Filter Infringing Material
- EU Advocate General Says You Can’t Copyright a Programming Language
- Australian ISPs Propose Anti-Piracy Plan, Copyright Holders Unhappy
- New Anti-IP Infringement PSA Campaign Launches in U.S.
- 200 Labels Leave Spotify
- Bittorrent Defense Attorney Switches Sides
