It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
As we approach the hottest part of the summer, copyright news itself starts to heat up as we have the latest move by Vimeo in its case against Vivendi, Aimee Mann files a potentially disrputive lawsuit in the world of streaming media and both Woody Allen and Elton John successfully defend their work.
Internationally though, things are also getting tense as Japan becomes a late entrant to the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations and crowdsourced copyright legislation will get a vote in Finland.
All of this and one bizarre attempt to rid the Web of an unfortunate viral video, on this week’s edition of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
This week’s stories include:
- Vimeo Seeks Dismissal of Vivendi Lawsuit
- Aimee Mann Sues Over Streaming Music Rights
- Woody Allen Wins Fair Use Case
- Court Upholds Originality of Elton John’s “Nikita”
- Japan Joins TPP Talks, During Round 18
- San Francisco TV Station Uses DMCAs To Remove Embarrassing Video
