It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It’s a truncated show this week due to the timing of last week’s show but there is still a lot of ground to cover in very short order. We first have the closure, possibly permanently, of Demonoid at the hands of a DDOS attack, major updates to the Megaupload and the Google Book Search case and a new target for Anonymous in the form of a French t-shirt maker.
Plus, we get a special appearance from Ghost Rider as he tries to team up with Silver Surfer to take on Marvel.
It’s a wild week to put this one mildly but we also spare a little time to answer the big questions like, “Is Patrick really 12 feet tall?” (Spoiler: No)
This week’s stories include:
- Demonoid Goes Down and Stays Down Following DDOS
- Megaupload Seeks Dismissal of Piracy Case in US
- Google Wants Authors Guild Case Tossed
- Ghost Rider Co-Creator Turns to Silver Surfer for Help in Lawsuit vs. Marvel
- UK Looks to Copyright “Hubs” to Help Digital Economy
- Leaked Report Claims RIAA Felt SOPA/PIPA “Ineffective” From Start
- French T-Shirt Maker Tries to Trademark Anonymous Logo
