This week on the Copyright 2.0 Show we have a first in the history of the show as Evan is broadcasting from his native Canada and that makes this the first truly international Copyright 2.0 Show in history.
Well, it wasn’t that big of a deal really, though I’m still waiting for my tariff for the quality services we imported and exported across the border.
What were those services? We got to talk about dragons! Well, Dungeons and Dragons at least. But before you grab your 20-sided dice and your character creation sheet, I should warn we’re discussing the horrors that is a Dungeons & Dragons movie.
But, at least we now have some hope that we’ll have a good one in the near future… right?
In other news this week, it looks like Spotify may soon be placing limits on free streaming, the copyright status of the original Buck Rogers story is in question and an Australian network makes a very odd copyright claim involving a reality TV show.
We then have a bizarre story of a producer being sued over a drumbeat and Katy Perry’s Met Ball dress sparking a copyright controversy of its own. Finally, Fox News was caught in a bit of a copyright blunder, shutting down its sister company’s stream of the Republican debate and the Beijing Olympics are accused of ripping of Frozen’s Let it Go, much to the ire of parents everywhere.
All in all, this is one crazy episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show and one that you’d not want to miss!
