Welcome to another edition of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
Before we begin, a bit of a programming note. Due to conflicting schedules that make recording difficult, we are going to make Copyright 2.0 Shows irregular, striving to do them once every two weeks.
For those wanting a weekly fix of copyright news, I’ll be starting a new weekly video series on my YouTube Channel (cross posted here on Plagiarism Today) that will focus on quick recaps of copyright news. We will then save the lengthy conversations, in-depth coverage and general theorizing for Copyright 2.0 Shows.
So stay tuned Friday for the new video series to begin!
With that bit of awkwardness behind us, we have a great show for you this week. We start out with a double dose of the Supreme Court as the Supreme Court takes in a double dose of one case and is asked to review another.
We also have an update on the controversial artist Richard Prince and a lawsuit over a 4K “Stripper” that may be the cause of 4K piracy on file sharing sites. We also have the latest on the monkey selfie case as well as the New Girl case and the Beastie Boys/Monster Beverage settlement.
Then we wrap everything up with more news about MP3Tunes (because we’re never truly done with a case) and the return of one of the great theoretical exercises in copyright, the copyrightability of tattoos.
We have all that and much more on this, Episode 378 of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
