It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
This week on the podcast, we take a break from talking about copyright news and offer some sound financial advice. Namely, don’t turn to Prenda Law for financial advice as we struggle to find an interest rate worse than the one they’re getting on their recent “loan” (though Patrick comes very close).
But there’s still a lot of other copyright news to talk about including the New Zealand Supreme Court hearing Kim Dotcom’s evidence appeal, copyright holders being denied the ability to sue YouTube as a class and settlements potentially shaking up the Grooveshark lawsuit.
All in all, it’s been a busy week for copyright news and this is an episode you do not want to miss!
This week’s stories include:
- Kim Dotcom’s Evidence Issue to Head to New Zealand Supreme Court
- Copyright Holders Denied Class Action Status in YouTube Case
- Five Individuals Settle Grooveshark Lawsuit, Main Case Continues
- Prenda Racking up $1,000 Per Day in Penalties
