It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It was, to put it modestly, a rough edition of the podcast. Though we have a spate of great stories, awesome conversation and witty banter, what we lacked was a working chatroom. Google+ kept breaking on us and kicking us out. This was such a frequent problem that, even with an extra few hours of editing, I was unable to completely clean up the audio.
Still, there is a lot of interesting news this week including the record labels resuming their lawsuit against Vimeo, a Chinese man pleading guilty to $100 million in piracy, Aereo announcing a major expansion and a case of architectural plagiarism that boggles the mind.
So, if you can forgive the technical problems (Hint: You’ll likely want to listen to the audio and skip the video as we can’t edit the video), this is still an episode you do not want to miss!
This week’s stories include:
- Record Labels Resume their Lawsuit Against Vimeo
- Chinese Man Pleads Guilty to Major Criminal Piracy Case
- Aereo Gets Funding, Expands to 22 Markets
- HBO and Universal Sign Exclusive Deal, Blocking Netflix
- Web Piracy Group Leader Sentenced to 5 Years
- Sony Issues Special Bob Dylan Collection to Extend Copyright
- Chinese Buildings Plagiarized, Plagiarized Copies May Be Completed First
