7-in-7: Sly and Soft

Crazy like a fox maybe?

SlySoft Box ArtIt’s Friday again and that means it’s time for yet another 7-in-7!

This, for those who don’t know, is the copyright news wrap-up that condenses hours of news into just a few minutes of your time, letting you get caught up on copyright news in the time it takes you to eat a light snack.

It’s another busy episode this week as I race to beat the counter while talking about Slysoft’s closure, the RIAA winning a default judgment against MP3Skull and the craziness taking place between the Department of Justice and the Copyright Office when it comes to music licensing.

So am I able to make good on my promise? You’ll have to watch and find out!

This week’s stories include:

  1. Slysoft, popular DVD decryption software retailer, closes for good
  2. RIAA wins big against MP3Skull
  3. Star Trek fan film wants clarification on what they are infringing
  4. 4Shared wins case in South Korea, to be removed from pirate block list
  5. The inspiration behind Rocky sues over “copycat” film
  6. 100 licensing draws serious questions from the Copyright Office
  7. Popcorn Time returns, even if it never really went away

You can find the full show notes here and, if you’re interested in an audio version, let me know and I’ll begin creating them for the next edition.

In the meantime, as always, I’d love your feedback on this format and any suggestions or advice you have to help make it great. I’m also getting back into the routine of posting other videos on my YouTube Channel so please subscribe, share, thumbs up and all of the other stuff you get asked to do there.

Have a great weekend and I will see everyone on Monday!
