It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It’s Patrick’s next-to-last episode but for right now it’s business as usual as we have a great deal of copyright news to bring to you.
First off we have news that the WHite House has filled the “IP Czar” position, SiriusXM scores a few wins in its battle over pre-1972 sound recordings and Aereo is again making its pitch to be treated like a cable company.
We also have a lawsuit between TVEyes and Fox News that could have a major impact on the TV clipping industry, news from Australia that the local telecoms are actually supporting (or at least tolerating) many copyright enforcement tactics and Kim Dotcom loses his bid to keep his assets hidden from the MPAA.
All of that plus a bizarre lawsuit against Jay Z, Kanye West and Frank Ocean brings an end to this, episode 341 of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
Finally, on a programming note. As you’ve probably figured out this coming Wednesday, Sept 10 at 5PM ET, will be Patrick O’Keefe’s final episode of the show. I’d love to have you guys in the chatroom to help me say goodbye and thank you to the man who has been a great cohost for over six years.
So mark your calendars, set your reminders and come join us!
