It is Thursday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
Scheduling conflicts, personal emergencies, alien invasions, I could go into detail about why it’s been so long since the last Copyright 2.0 Show but there’s no point. All you need to know is we’re getting back into our weekly rhythm and we have a few new major changes coming your way including, we hope, a new intro and a new podcast page.
In the meantime though, we have our work cut out for us as we have to get through several week’s worth of copyright news… in just one hour! So how do we do it? Cower and hide? Nope. We just add an extra story to the show notes and throw ourselves to the wolves.
As a result, this episode covers everything from the Supreme Court to the far reaches of Norway. The appeals court try to explain what Sling is while I try to figure out who Sam Smith is.
And everyone is confused about the Blurred Lines case.
All of that and much, much more on this, Episode 353 of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
