Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 353 – Mixtapes 4Ever

Mixtape ImageIt is Monday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.

If this podcast feels like it has a bizarre 80s vibe to it, you’re not alone. A copyright podcast with a lengthy discussion about the legality of mixtapes will leave many wondering what year it is.

But don’t fret too much. We quickly bring things back into the 21st century as we discuss satellite radio… and how it interacts with pre-1972 music. Then we talk about a state attorney general, only to get sidetracked by a mullet.

So maybe this isn’t the most 2015 podcast. But there’s still a long way to go…

In more modern news, we talk about a new plant to stop copyright violation s on the Web, an update on the legal threats between Global Music Rights and YouTube and the latest on Kim Dotcom.

But then we wrap it up with the latest on the James Bond lawsuit against a film commonly referred to as his origin story. So we end by going back to the stories of decades yore.

All of that and much more this, Episode 353 of the Copyright 2.0 Show!

  • Universal Sues Over Company Selling Mixtapes in Prisoner Care Packages
