Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 373 – Sea Shanties and Shaking

Taylor Swift 1989 CoverIt’s another late edition of the Copyright 2.0 Show but man do we have a great show for you! Not only do we get to cover the latest in copyright news but we also get to cover the latest in video game news as we talk about… Assassins Creed Black Flag?

Yeah, we might not be working our way through Fallout 4 but are there sea shanties in Fallout 4? No. I rest my case.

Since there is a law that says we have to talk about copyright news on the Copyright 2.0 Show, we do so as we talk about a pair of key victories by the MPAA over Popcorn Time and the torrent group that fed it. We also give the update on what the U.S. government says is OK to do with your stuff and what happened with that Taylor Swift lawsuit that she shook off so easily.

The Happy Birthday to You lawsuit also takes a bizarre turn this week as a new challenger lays claim to the copyright and Aurous wishes it could escape the lawsuit against it but the record labels aren’t ready to let go.

Finally we have a criminal case involving a copyright expert working for Sony who is accused of defrauding the company, Deadmau5 suing his former label in Canada and Universal’s Steve Jobs film may bomb in the courtroom as well as the box office.

All in all, this is a jam-packed show that you do not want to miss. Now what WILL we do with the drunken sailor?

  • MPAA Shutters Popcorn Time and YIFY
