It is Friday again and that means that it is time for not one but two episodes of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
Ok, it’s time to come clean. Back in the run up to SXSW, on March 7th, Patrick and I recorded Episode 231 of the show. As great as it was (and is) I wasn’t able to get the audio edited and uploaded before I had to hit the road to Austin and, since I was gone last week, it has sadly languished on my computer for two weeks time, gathering dust in my audio folder.
However, what that means is that this Friday you get a doubleheader of Copyright 2.0 Show action with twice the copyright news, twice the commentary and, unfortunately, twice the bad jokes.
With that in mind, here’s what you can expect from each of this week’s episodes.
Episode 231 Includes:
- BT and TalkTalk Lose Their Appeal in the UK, Ordered to Follow Digital Economy Act
- U.S. Supreme Court Declines to Hear Perfect 10 Case
- Hotfile Seeks Damages from Warner Brothers
- Kim Dotcom’s Extradition Papers Are Filed
- Limewire Settles With Merlin
- Righthaven Copyrights to Be Auctioned Off
Episode 232 Includes:
- US May See ISP File Sharing Warnings This Summer
- Google Jumps in to Help Hotfile
- Amazon Gets Involved With Pinterest’s Copyright Woes
- Senator Wyden Seeks More Transparency in IP Treaty Negotiation
- New Zealand Judge Nullfies Kim Dotcom Seizure Order
- Even More Righthaven Copyrights to be Auction Off (a bit of a theme here)
