Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 351 – Sunk Pirates

tpb-logoIt is Tuesday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.

We are a few days late with this episode due to some scheduling conflicts but there was no way we could skip. There was simply way, way too much great copyright news to discuss. First we have a rousing discussion about Evan’s haircut, then there’s a lengthy speech about the state of rock and roll in the 21st century before we close on a small story about The Pirate Bay.

So, maybe some of that wasn’t true, but we did indeed talk about The Pirate Bay and there was also lot of other great news as Jay Z comes out a head in a sampling lawsuit, a defunct book publisher isn’t in trouble for telling users how to break DRM and Cindy Lee Garcia, ahead of her appearance before the full 9th Circuit, gets some last-minute support.

We also have an update on the Beastie Boys case against Monster Energy Drink, Playboy targeting an Irish site over some leaked photos and news that the FCC may be breathing some new life into the online TV streaming marketplace.

This week’s stories include:

  • Swedish Raid Takes Down The Pirate Bay
  • Judge Dismisses One-Syllable Sampling Case
  • Instructions to Remove DRM, By Itself, Is Not Illegal
  • Actors Guild Supports Garcia in “Innocence of Muslims” Lawsuit
  • Judge Refuses to Reduce Beastie Boys Payday in Monster Energy Drink Case
  • Playboy Targets Irish Site Over Leaked Photos
  • FCC May Open Up Statutory Licensing to Online TV Streaming Services
