Friday Thursday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
What? An early Copyright 2.0 Show? How can that be!? Well, it’s quite simple, Patrick and I both are making our way tomorrow to Indieconf, where we will both be speaking. If you want to attend, there are still tickets available for $129 and I’ve even offered a discount code to take 20% off of that price.
So, if you’re in the Raleigh, come by and see us Saturday.
In the meantime though, we did have a lot of copyright news to go over and we have the latest news on AutoHopper living to fight another day, Google’s response to the “Innocence of Muslims” lawsuit and a threat from US copyright holders against the UK for its controversial “orphan works” legislation.
All of that and more make this a packed Copyright 2.0 Show that you don’t want to miss!
This week’s stories include:
- Judge Denies Injunction Against “AutoHop” DVR
- Google Claims Actress Has No Rights to Controversial YouTube Video
- UK Orphan Works Legislation Prompts Threats from US Rightsholders
- Canadian Photographers Now Own Commissioned Works
- China Claims its Piracy Problems Aren’t That Bad
