It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
With the upcoming holiday in the United States, there was something of a slowdown on copyright news. However, with the recent Aereo ruling, we still had a great deal of fallout to discuss including Aereo’s “pause” and how the case is being used in other litigation.
But it’s not all Aereo this week as we get a glimpse at another possible Supreme Court showdown, an update from the Congressional overview of copyright law and a music licensing dispute of truly global proportions.
We then get an update on the “Section 6” lawsuit and learn that some Copyright Alert System notices may be falling into the hands of one “copyright troll” organization.
All of that and much more on this, Episode 332 of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
