Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 239 – Fried Macbooks

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

It’s been a bit of a challenging week or so around here. Not only did I manage to completely fry my Macbook, along with the idea of doing a podcast last week, but I also sustained a running fall that sprained my left wrist and scraped me up pretty badly. All in all, not the best of weeks.

However, we must press forward and Patrick was more than patient enough with me as we plowed through not only our first podcast in two weeks, but in our first-ever podcast on Google+ Hangout. Needless to say, this was a technical nightmare in the making. However, this does mean that this is the first Copyright 2.0 Show to appear on YouTube, as you’ll find embedded below.

But even with all of the challenges, we got through a great deal of copyright news including stories about Joel Tenenbam’s appeal before The Supreme Court, a fashion dispute for the ages and much, much more!

This week’s stories include:

  • Supreme Court Declines To Hear Tenenbaum Case
  • Gucci Bests Guess but Wins Minimal Damages
  • Oracle and Google Resolve a Copyright Difference
  • Aereo Scores Partial Victory Over TV Networks, Bigger Issues Loom
  • Megaupload Seeks Delay in Civil Case
  • India Passes New Copyright Legislation
