Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 295 – Sirius Lawsuit


SiriusXM LogoIt is Friday Monday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.

Due to an unexpected hiatus resulting from a death in my family, today’s podcast is actually the one that should have gone online a week and a half ago, on August 9. So while the information in this podcast might be a little bit dated, hopefully it’s still entertaining and informative.

With that aside, there is a lot new in this week’s podcast as Comcast seems to be working on an alternative anti-piracy system to the current “six strikes” one, Grooveshark and EMI settle their differences, again, and the music publishers file a lawsuit against a major YouTube network.

But it doesn’t end there, we also have the latest on Fox News’ copyright saga, a potentially devastating lawsuit against SiriusXM and Russia breaking the world record on amending a new anti-piracy law.

All of that and much, much more on this, Episode 295, of the Copyright 2.0 Show!

This week’s stories include:

  • Comcast Wants to Provide Real-Time Anti-Piracy Alerts
  • Grooveshark and EMI Settle Their Differences Again
  • Music Publishers Target YouTube Network Over Covers
  • Fox News Sues Media “Search Engine” TVEye
  • The Turtles File $100 million Class Action Against SiriusXM Over Pre-1927 Music
  • Russia Seeks to Expand New Anti-Piracy Law
  • DreamWorks Wins “Kung Fu Panda” Lawsuit

  1. Whatever happened to the Grooveshark-EMI ‘settlement’? An agreement was supposedly on the brink of being signed 2 weeks ago, but no news since then. Maybe the reports (which look to be inspired by Grooveshark itself) were a tad optimistic.

    • Maybe, I hadn’t heard anything further since then either. I did a quick check and nothing new appears to have been posted about it. I’m sure we’ll find out one way or another soon enough!
