It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It’s been a storm of traveling around here as I’m between two international trips and just back from a shorter trip to Houston. However, in the eye of the storm Patrick and I found the time to produce a new episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show and what an episode it is!
First we get some actual data from the Center for Copyright Information and the “six strikes” system in the United States, The long-awaited lawsuit against Led Zeppelin over “Stairway to Heaven” is filed and Pirate Bay co-founder Peter Sunde is arrested in Sweden after being on the run for two years.
But we’re not done after that. Nintendo announces a new affiliate program for videos based on its content, Kim Dotcom’s frozen assets attract the attention of the movie studios and the UK is asking Google (and other search engines) to do more to stop piracy.
Then we wrap up with the bizarre case of Urban Outfitters and the plagiarized cubist dress…
All of that and much more on this, Episode 329 of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
