It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It was a doozy of an episode for us. With the show on hiatus last week due to Hurricane Isaac, we are back not only to update everyone on what happened in the storm, but on two weeks worth of copyright news.
As such, not only do we spend a good deal of time talking about what it was like in New Orleans after Hurricane Isaac passed, but we also talk about the arrest of one of the Pirate Bay co-founders, copyright bots going on a rampage and even an important update from Michael Jackson’s estate.
It’s a big week with lots of news and great stories. It’s an hour of podcasting you don’t want to miss.
This week’s stories include:
- Pirate Bay Founder Arrested in Cambodia
- UStream Copyright Bot Kills Hugo Awards Stream
- YouTube Flags Democrat’s Convention Video for Copyright Violations
- Rojadirecta Gets Domain Restored
- Michael Jackson Estate Settles Lawsuit
- New Zealand Copyright Tribunal Sees First Case
- UKNova Closes Shop After Threats from FACT
