It is Monday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
Death, loss and doom are a common thread in this episode as we not only watch as one prominent player declare bankruptcy but see a crucial case for another taking a very dire turn.
However, we also have a sense of birth taking place as a new music licensing company begins throwing its weight around and a separate licensing agency has found a new target to try and collect royalties from.
But we do have some of our same old stories as we have a double header about Kim Dotcom and his “fugitive” status and, of course, Perfect 10 losing again.
You can’t get much more “ordinary episode” than that.
All of that and much more on this, Episode 349 of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
