It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
With Patrick and I both away last week to speak at Indieconf, we had a lot of catching up this week. We have the latest news on the epic copyright fail that has been sweeping Facebook, porn copyright “trolls” suing Verizon and the fate of Richard O’Dwyer.
But when you’re done listening to this podcast (or watching the video), check out the other recent things Patrick, his brother Sean and I have done together recently:
- Soda Tasting: Four reviews on Patrick’s show Soda Tasting, a show reviewing various soft drinks. Episodes include Blenheim Ginger Ale (Red Cap), Meyer Lemon Soda, Moxie (with Sugar) and Abita Root Beer
- First Sixty: One episode (two parts) of First Sixty, a show by Patrick and his brother Sean where they play new (to them) games and record their reactions. Episodes include Call of Duty Black Ops 2 Zombies Part One and Part Two. Another episode (w/ two more parts) is scheduled to debut next week.
To say it was a fun change of pace is an understatement.
That being said, there’s still copyright news to cover and this week’s stories include:
- Facebook Updates Terms, Users Go Copyright Crazy
- Porn Copyright “Troll” Sues Verizon, Seeks More Names
- Richard O’Dwyer Settles with US Government
- Google Battles German Linking Law
- Tattoo Artist Sues THQ over Tattoo in UFC Game
- Black Keys Settle with Pizza Hut and Home Depot
- Finnish Police Raid House, Seize 9-Year-Old’s Laptop
