It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
As we begin to wind down the year we’re starting to see a flurry of copyright-related activity. This includes revised legislation before the House of Representatives, a new dispute that pits Megaupload against Universal Music Group and further updates on Righthaven and just how badly their campaign is going.
It is an episode that you do not want to miss.
This week’s stories include:
- MegaUpload Sues Universal Music Over Alleged False DMCA Takedown
- SOPA Revised in Preparation for Hearings
