Friday Monday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
There’s no good way to follow up Episode 300. Great guests and awesome stories just make the show truly unforgettable. However, press on we must and press on we do and fortunately we’re helped out by some great copyright news that keeps the week both entertaining and interesting.
We have the latest on the networks bid to stop Dish Network’s “Hopper” DVR, signs that Aereo may be securing another win and even a possible conclusion to the Google Book Search case. Then we shift gears to talk about Hotfile’s DMCA conundrum, Spain passing new anti-piracy legislation and Disney not taking any action against “Escape From Tomorrow”.
All of that and much, much more!

- Fox Fails Again in Bid to Stop Dish’s Hopper

- Google Book Search Case May Be Wrapping Up
- Warner Brothers May Be Held Accountable for False DMCA Notices
