It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
Have you ever looked at something and had an uneasy, unsettling feeling? That feeling like something is wrong or out of place. Much of this podcast is about exactly that, specifically when looking at artwork that appears in the Zero Theorem and a 3D printed planter that looks remarkably like Bulbasaur from Pokemon.
But it’s not all about sinking, unsettling similarity, we have a lot of talk about the release of the Expendables 3 and the impact piracy had on it, an update on the lawsuit around the leak of that film and an update on the Aereo case. We also look at Rightscorp ambitious plan for dealing with piracy and the Premier League’s equally ambitious goal for targeting Vines and gifs of its goals.
All in all, even if this episode is a bit unsettling, this is one show you don’t want to miss!
