It is Monday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
As with the past two episodes, we’re playing a game of “7 Stories in 7 Minutes” where I give the basic overview of 7 copyright stories, covering 7 days with of news in about 7 minutes of screen time. Not a bad way to get caught up on what’s going on.
On that note, it was a tough, tough week for Grooveshark. Not only did the record labels move for a summary judgment in the state course case, but they got one in the federal case. Though it doesn’t address many of the issues at the heart of the matter, it seems likely Grooveshark is facing millions in damages.
But the Turtles had a much better week, following up their ruling over SiriusXM with a follow up lawsuit against Pandora. We also have news about the MP3Tunes case, Lady Gaga going after the woman who sued her, a photographer targeting Imgur and Google battling back with some German publishers.
Oh, and it’s now legal to rip your CDs and DVDs in the UK, not that anyone bothered to notice it wasn’t legal.
All of that and much more on this, Special Episode 3 of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
