It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
This week, Patrick and I come back from two weeks off for the holidays to talk about all of the presents we got, what Christmas means to us as adults and the true joy of giving.
That and some copyright stuff too…
With so much time to cover we have to race to catch up. We have a lot of ground to cover including GoDaddy changing its stance on SOPA due to a boycott, a potential PROTECT IP vote in the Senate, an important medical diagnostic test removed due to a copyright claim, Atari going after knockoff apps in the iOS app store and much, much more!
So, come ring in the new year with us and get things started right with a mega dose of copyright news, views and abuse.
This week’s stories include:
- GoDaddy Backtracks on SOPA After Boycott
- PROTECT IP Vote Possible
- Mental State Test Removed Due to Copyright Claim
- Atari Removes “Hundreds” of Games From the iOS App Store
- The “Spanish Napster” Wins Big in Local Court
- ABC Settles Wipeout Lawsuit
- James Joyce Works Hit the Public Domain
