It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It was a bit of a slow week for copyright news as we enter the latter part of summer when the courts are closed and even the lawyers are on vacation but, despite the best attempts to thwart the stream of copyright news, we have found a way. There were several major stories this week including some copyright questions related to alleged Ansel Adams negatives, an update to the LimeWire case and much, much more.
This week’s stories include:
- Copyright Questions Loom Over Alleged Ansel Adams Negatives
- Judge Declines to Freeze LimeWire’s Assets
- Gaiman Beats McFarlane in Ultimate Nerd War
- iiNet Case on Appeal in Australia
- RIAA Says Legal Fees Were Well Spent
- US Copyright Group Accused of Lifting From Competitor’s Site
