Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 379 – Happiest Birthday

BirthdayWelcome everyone we are back and with another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show!

There’s a bit of housekeeping with this one. This one covers a lot of news from the latter part of February into early March as we recorded this on March 9th. Unfortunately, due to technical issues I wasn’t able to get it posted until after I came back from SXSW and, even then, with some struggles.

That being said, while this one might be out of date, it sure as heck has a LOT of important news including the finale of several important cases. Those cases including the Happy Birthday lawsuit, the Fox/Dish Network battle over AutoHop, the Fox News fight over the 9/11 photograph and RealMassive and CoStar settling their dispute over real estate photography.

Heck, even the Batmobile case reaches something of a conclusion as the Supreme Court refuses to hear it.

Beyond that we have the U.S. Copyright Office issuing its opinion on the “Making Available” right, the Department of Justice trying to streamline music licensing and much more.

So come join us as we get caught up on copyright news and maybe get caught up yourself.

This week’s stories include:

  • Happy Birthday Lawsuit is Settled
  • Fox and Dish Network Settle AutoHop Case
