This week on the Copyright 2.0 Show we are tackling some of life’s most difficult and most important questions.
Did Evan Sheres perform Bon Jovi? Can you copyright a chicken sandwich? What about a cheerleader uniform? What happens when a national anthem can’t be played for free? What on earth is the City of Inglewood thinking?
You might not think these are deep, philosophical questions and you’d probably be right. But that doesn’t stop us from treating them with a level of reverence and care that they clearly do not deserve.
But that’s not all this week as we also have updates on the Prenda Law saga, a bizarre case involving an unauthorized film sequel and, yes, Ashley Madison making copyright news following it hack and leak.
So, put on your thinking cap and enjoy us for Episode 367 of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
