It’s Friday again and that means it’s time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
It’s nice to be back on a regular schedule this week but it was anything but an ordinary show as a sharp disagreement causes a rift between Patrick and I that only time may begin to heal (Not really). But alas, we put our (not) sharp differences in opinion aside and moved on to cover some copyright news and what a week it was.
We have an update to Twitter’s DMCA policy that aims to provide better transparency, Pandora suing ASCAP as a means to seek out better royalty rates and news that Google’s efforts to demote pirate sites may not be working as well as hoped.
All of that and much more on this, a very full episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
This week’s stories include:
- Twitter Updates DMCA Policy, No Longer “Disappears” Tweets
- Pandora Sues ASCAP, Claims Royalties Are Unfair
- Pirate Sites Still Rank Well in Google
- More Wrangling Over Superman’s Copyright
- Kim Dotcom Loses His Domain Preemptively
- US Government and Megaupload Spar Over Frozen Assets
- What Copyright Challenges Face a Second Obama Term?
(Note: Due to a technical issue, i had to pull the audio from the YouTube version of the podcast, meaning the MP3 version will be a slightly lower quality. I am sorry for the inconvenience.)
