It is Sunday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
Yes, it has been far, far too long since we did one of these. Travel and visits have been the issue as we both have been away from our offices more than we’ve been in them but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been keeping up with what’s going on.
Oh no, this is one action packed show and even though we have a month’s worth of news to cover, we actually start with a story that was barely hours old at the time we recored, the update to the Blurred Lines ruling.
But we get caught up on everything as we then go back in time to talk about Google/Oracle and then what feels like even farther back in time as discuss the “Dancing Baby” case. We also have the latest on the battle with Sirius XM over pre-1972 sound recordings and the “Jumpman” lawsuit.
We then get the latest on the Beastie Boys battle with Monster Energy, the settlement of the lawsuit over the Frozen trailer and Sony Music taking some heat for its deal with Spotify.
Then, after all of that, we wrap it up with a look at a defeat for Google in Canada that could have global implications.
All of that and much more on this, Episode 362 of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
