It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
It was a busy week for copyright news with a lot of great stories, even if some of them were a bit on the predictable side. We start out with the Viacom/YouTube war and its next phase and then step into the World of Warcraft before heading back to more traditional ground and finishing with a lawsuit literally held together by velcro.
It was a strange week to say the least and a show you don’t want to miss!
This week’s stories include:
- Viacom Appeals YouTube Ruling
- Google Leaker Discovered, Actually Not
- Blizzard Wins $88 million judgment in World of Warcraft Case
- Major Lyrics Site to be Shuttered
- In Germany, Anti-Piracy Efforts Go Awry
- “Bruno” Sued Over Velcro, Slips Away
