It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
This week we start off on the International front as we talk about the recent ruling in Kim Dotcom’s case in New Zealand but we quickly bring it back to the United States as we discuss Perfect 10’s lawsuit against LeaseWeb and news that the UFC is targeting those who viewed illegal pay-per-view streams.
Then we keep it in the states as we discuss the unfortunate nature of Stan Lee Media’s abbreviation and and bring things really local for me as we talk about an area businessman arrested for an unusual copyright violation.
But we end things on a more upbeat note as we talk about De La Soul giving away their music and why you might want to act cordial the next time someone accuses you of violating the law…
All of that and much more on this, Episode 318 of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
