It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It was a busy week for copyright news but, truth be told, the best fodder for conversation wasn’t the “big” stories that were going down. Sure, we have news about Ireland’s SOPA-like legislation, Grooveshark being blocked in Denmark and Shepard Fairey pleading guilty to contempt of court. But the real conversation pieces revolved around Pinterest’s relationship with Flickr and a YouTube ContentID flub.
So strap in and get your copyright thinking caps on, it’s going to be a bumpy ride!
This week’s stories include:
- Ireland Passes Site Blocking Law
- Grooveshark to be Blocked in Denmark
- Shepard Fairey Please Guilty to Falsifying Evidence
- Kim Dotcom’s Bail Appealed
- Flickr Disables Pinterest on Thousands of Images
- DRM Proposal for HTML5 Sparks Controversy
- YouTube ContentID, Copyright Holder Make Blunder
