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 the week for the Copyright 2.0 Show as our sports metaphors got a bit more out of sorts than usual. Sure we all know what three strikes is, though it’s not clear what that means in France, but what the heck do you a “Six Strikes” system? We wrestled with that question and came up with at least one non-compelling answer (Spoiler: Check the title).
But we also have one of the greatest tales of hypocrisy we have seen in a while and another copyright conundrum that will probably keep us both awake at night. All of this and a $180 art book that doesn’t have any images in it.
This is definitely one show you don’t want to miss!
This week’s stories include:
- US to Launch Six Strikes This Year
- France Three Strikes Claims First Victim
- Zynga Fires Back at EA
- Google Gets Stay in Book Search Case
- Canadian Mint Drops Royalty Request Over Penny Design
- Guyana Requests Pirated Textbooks
