Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 355 – Giving it Up

Blurred Lines CoverIt is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.

What’s this? Two weeks in a row? It’s almost like the podcast is getting back and track and we could not have picked a better week to have that happen. With the Blurred Lines verdict fresh on everyone’s minds, Evan and I sit down to hash it out and Evan gives us an attorney’s view about the possible reasons the jurors voted the way they did.

But the show doesn’t end there we also have some fresh news in the Village People copyright termination fight, an update on the Georgia State University “e-reserves” case and Google scoring a key win over the Mississippi Attorney General.

We also have some open source software news as VMware is sued for GPL violations, Florida is seeking to unmask anonymous sites and the U.S. government is moving in for the kill on Kim Dotcoom’s assets.

All of that and an requiem for Aereo, which was sold off at auction – for a lot less than expected.

In short, this is a busy show and definitely one you do not want to miss!

This week’s stories include:

  • Blurred Lines Ruled to be an Infringement
  • Victor Willis reclaims 50% of the Copyright to His Songs
