It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
Summer typically means a slowdown on copyright news but this summer has been the summer of Aereo. Not only do we have the decision, the “pause” on Aereo’s service but now we have the fallout in other cases as well as Fox tries to use the decision to advance its case(s) against Dish Network.
We also have a bizarre lawsuit by a sound engineer that worked for Jay Z, yet another delay on Kim Dotcom’s extradition, a new copyright law in Singapore that enables courts order ISPs to block infringing sites and news that site blocking in India may not have gone so well.
We wrap up the show with news that Microsoft is tatting the NHS in the UK to task over allegedly unlicensed software some 30,000 people are estimate to have received fake copyright notices that contained malware.
All of that and Patrick reminds me that I am an all-powerful being when it comes to show notes and can make the podcast bend to my will on a whim. A dangerous thing to remind me…
