Eps 221 – SOPAlternative

Image of Open Sign

It’s Friday again and that means it’s time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show!

It may be the holidays but that doesn’t mean things are slowing down in copyright news. Not only is SOPA and it’s new alternative still making headlines, but new DRM rules are on the horizon and we even have a major court ruling in a case against an advertiser.

We also have a case of a fair use ruling making strange bedfellows and a conclusion to the Vostu/Zynga case just in time for Zynga’s upcoming IPO.

Those stories and many more are in this week’s edition of the Copyright 2.0 Show!

This week’s stories include:

  • SOPA Opponents Introduce Alternative Legislation, now Called OPEN Act
  • EFF to Ask Copyright Office to Legalize Jailbreaking on Tablets, Consoles and More
  • Chitika Not Liable for Serving Ads on Pirate Site, May Have Been if Informed
  • Publishers, Record Labels Join Righthaven Fair Use Fight
  • Vostu Settles w/ Zynga, Will Change Games
  • Much, Much More!
