Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 346 – The New Guy

Evan ImageIt’s Monday again and that means it’s time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show!

This episode, we introduce a new face, Evan Sheres, currently hailing from Washington D.C. He’s also a singer-songwriter and a pretty fun guy to spend time with in general. This is also the first time in the show’s history that we’ve had someone on it who knows what they are talking about.

But we don’t get a whole lot of time for chit chat as we have to jump right in to copyright news, we have 2 and a half weeks worth of stories to cover and only an hour to do it in.

We start off the show with a major, though somewhat obvious, appeals court ruling on fair use, an update on Aereo’s situation and an update on the “New Girl” lawsuit. We also have the latest on Led Zeppelin, Kim Dotcom and even Google’s efforts to combat piracy.

Most importantly though, we have some big news for cord cutters, your dreams of legal HBO may finally be coming true…

All of that and much more on this, episode 346 of the Copyright 2.0 Show!

This week’s stories include:

  • Appeals Court Overturns Ruling in GSU Case
  • Judge is Skeptical About Aereo’s New Plea
  • New Girl Lawsuit Dismissed, May be Refiled
  • Stairway To Heaven Lawsuit Moves Forward (Kind Of)
  • Kim Dotcom Must Reveal All of His Assets
  • Google Tweaks Search Algorithms to Battle Piracy
  • HBO and CBS Announce Online-Only Plans
