It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
This week on the Copyright 2.0 Show should come with a medical warning as some severe Twitching is possible from listening.
That’s because Twitch has introduced a new copyright system that mutes audio on videos on demand that’s caused quite a controversy online. Meanwhile, in Japan we have news that SNK Playmore and Square-Enix are battling over a manga and Russian social network VKontakte has its first day in court against the record labels that are so eager to end its file sharing ways.
But then we have some more leak news as yet another upcoming episode of Doctor Who appears online. In sampling news another hip hop battle as Three 6 Mafia members are sued over allegedly uncleared samples.
We also have a battle over a proposed musical about the famous record label Stax records and a story of death and rebirth as TorrentShack goes offline but then comes back under mysterious circumstances.
All in all, this is one episode that you don’t want to miss!
