Eps 224 – Going Dark

Reddit Logo

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

This week’s a show about site blocking, specifically blocking pirate sites. Not only do we have an update on SOPA and PIPA, but we also have news of The Pirate Bay being blocked in both the Netherlands and Finland. However, once we’re done with that we take another look at the idea of selling “used” music tracks and even a glance at the overall opinion of file sharing in the U.S.

All in all, this is an episode you do not want to miss so start your (legal) downloads!

This week’s stories include:

  • Netherlands Moves to Block The Pirate Bay
  • Pirate Bay Block in Finland Spawns DDOS Attacks
  • Reddit Plans Major SOPA Protest
  • Capitol Records Sues ReDigi Over “Used” Audio Files
  • NinjaVideo.net Admin Sentenced
  • Much, Much More!
