It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
This week Patrick and I find something else we have in common, in particular early 90s Nickelodeon TV and the not-so-hit show “Salute Your Shorts”. But while it was nice to reminisce about Camp Anawana and characters named “Donkey Lips” (actual character name), we did have to quickly turn our attention to copyright news as there was a lot of ground to cover in very little time.
We have the latest in the case involving Megaupload (the company), an update on LimeWire, yes, THAT LimeWire, and another lawsuit from Stan Lee Media, which is of no current relation to Stan Lee himself.
If that’s not confusing enough, there’s more on three strikes, both in New Zealand and the UK, two stories involving Google trying to make peace…
All of that and more on a very whirlwind edition of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
This week’s stories include:
- Megaupload’s Motion to Dismiss is Denied
- Movie Studios Seek Infringement Judgment Against LimeWire
- Stan Lee Media Sues Disney Over Marvel Characters
- Eight People Reach Tribunal Phase in New Zealand Three Strikes System
- Copyright Holders Want UK Three Strikes Expanded to Mobile Networks
- Google and Publishers Settle Book Search Case
- YouTube Aims to Improve ContentID
- Microsoft Accidentally Targets BBC and More with DMCA Notice
