Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 359 – Groovy Shutdown

GrooveShark Loading ImageIt is Friday Tuesday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.

Ever feel like a show is cursed? That’s how this one felt. An AC outage at my house made recording without a slew of noisy fans and, for Evan, it was delays getting his Internet set up. Yet, here we are, meeting again for the first time in a few weeks trying to get caught back up on copyright news.

And boy do we have a LOT to go over. Not only are we covering the closing of Grooveshark, but the “reopening” of it, which would go on to disappoint nearly all of Grooveshark’s fans. We then have a double header of Pandora news as it loses one and wins one in its ongoing royalty fights and then it’s another double header, this one for Rightscorp, which also loses one and wins one in its legal battles to stop piracy.

We wrap up the show with a YouTuber filing one of the craziest lawsuits we’ve seen and panel of judges in the 9th Circuit having a field day with Prenda Law (yes, that Prenda Law).

All in all, this show is better late than never and one you don’t want to miss!

This week’s stories include:

  • Grooveshark Shutters in Settlement with Record Labels
  • New Grooveshark Site Launched, Sued and Shuttered
  • Appeals Court Rules in Pandora’s Favor
  • BMI Wins Royalty Ruling Against Pandora
  • Small ISP Bests Rightscorp Over DMCA Subpoenas
  • Warner Brothers and Rightscorp Win Key Ruling in Class Action Lawsuit
  • YouTube User Sues Over ContentID Takedowns
  • 9th Circuit Tears into Prenda Law
