It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It’s been far, far too long since the last episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show. But between SXSW, illness, alien invasion and scheduling conflicts, we haven’t been able to get back in together to do a show.
However, we are setting aside our sniffles and coughs to get back in the saddle and get caught up on all of the copyright news that we missed.
On that front, it’s a doozy of an episode. We have three major settlements, as Viacom/Google, Richard Prince/Patrick Cariou and Spotify/Ministry of Sound all bury the hatchet. We also have two major rulings as the MP3Tunes case reaches a verdict and Teller wins his case over a magic trick and a copycat magician.
We decided that, to get through all of this, we needed some back up so we’ve brought in Terry Hart from CopyHype to help us make sense of it all and let us get back to being caught up.
All in all, if you listen to one episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show this month, it pretty much has to be this one. Because it’s the only one this month…
This week’s stories include:
- Viacom and Google Settle $1 Billion Lawsuit
- MP3Tunes Founder Liable for Copyright Infringement
- Richard Prince and Patrick Cariou Settle Divisive Fair Use Case
- Spotify and Ministry of Sound Settle Case over Playlists and Copyright
- Aereo Shuts Down in Two Cities
