7-in-7: Availability Making

600px-US-CopyrightOffice-1978Seal.svgIt’s Friday again and that means it’s time for yet another 7-in-7!

This is the copyright new wrap up that takes my hours of copyright news and research and condenses it all down into just 7 fast-paced minutes of information. That way, if you missed a few three counts or some copyright stories, you can get caught back up in the time it takes to eat a bagel.

But that won’t be an easy task this week, we have a lot of complicated stories including a major report from the U.S. Copyright Office on the “Making Available” right, the twin lawsuits against TIDAL and Google Play and a big mess unfolding in the LMFAO/Rick Ross spat over Hustlin’.

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

This week’s stories include:

  1. US Copyright Office says “making available” is already part of the law
  2. Google Play and TIDAL both sued for copyright infringement
  3. RealMassive and CoStar settle their case over real estate photography
  4. Google and Oracle both get criticized by judge in Java case
  5. US Copyright Office says Rick Ross’ Hustlin’ registrations are invalid
  6. Hong Kong government abandons copyright reform plans, for now
  7. Deadmau5 and Kanye West spar over alleged piracy

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!
