It is Monday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It’s hard to pick a week more crazy than this one for copyright news. We not only have a major update in the Blurred Lines case, one that highlights some serious problems with the jury’s findings, but we have a lawsuit involving the iconic Who’s on First routine.
We also have another lawsuit over movie soundtracks and an update on the Grooveshark story that sees CloudFlare disconnect the site from the Web as well as yet another update Kim Dotcom.
However, the winner of the “Double Facepalm” award this week comes from Inglewood, California as the city itself uses $50,000 of the city’s funds to try and silence a critic of the mayor and the city council on YouTube.
Let’s see how that one goes…
All in all this is a very packed week of copyright news and definitely an episode not to be missed!
