Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 235 – Viacom Revived

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

It’s another late edition of the Copyright 2.0 Show due to some non-podcasting-related technical issues but this is definitely a show you do not want to miss. Not only do we have the Viacom/YouTube lawsuit coming back from the dead, but we also have a brand new discussion over video embedding and some mega updates on Megaupload.

Combine that with some great off-topic discussion and this is definitely a show you do not want to miss!

This week’s stories include:

  • Appeals Court Revives Google/YouTube/Viacom Lawsuit
  • MPAA Claims Embedding a Video is a Direct Infringement
  • EFF and Others Argue Over Fate of Megaupload Files
  • Mass Bittorrent Litigation Suffers Two More Setbacks
  • Russia Moves to Hold ISPs Responsible Over Infringement
  • German Pirate Party Gets a Boost
  • Words Sewn Onto Quilts Leads to a Lawsuit
