Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 377 – Unsafe Harbors

cox_logoHappy New Year and welcome to the first Copyright 2.0 Show in 2016!

With the holidays behind us we have a lot to go through as a surprising amount happened over the winter break. We had a crucial court ruling in the Kim Dotcom extradition case, a series of royalty-related moves for Pandora and a ruling against the U.S. ISP Cox that may shake up the handling of copyright infringers across the country.

We then take a look at a nasty screener leak that hit The Hateful Eight just prior to its release and how a Star Trek fan film is in trouble before it even was in production. Finally, we have another Tarantino story as the director is sued over Django Unchained and Google defeats a lawsuit aimed at its Waze GPS service.

All of that and much, much more on this, Episode 377 of the Copyright 2.0 Show!

This week’s stories include:

  • New Zealand Court Rules Kim Dotcom Can Be Extradited
