Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 197


It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.

As we inch ever closer to episode 200 we have a doozy of a show with a ton of important updates from across the copyright world. Not only do we have a new (old) Register of Copyrights, who isn’t me, but the PROTECT IP act moves forward before stalling, Apple may shake up cloud music next week and Germany seems to be blowing other countries out of the water in P2P litigation.

All in all, it was an action-packed show where I even reveal my secret to my Twitter success (not really).

This week’s stories include:

  • Maria Pallante Named Register of Copyrights
  • PROTECT IP Passess Committee, is Blocked By Senator Wyden
  • Germany Copyright Holders Get 300,000 Names Per Month
  • Canadian “Pending List” Lawsuit Settled
  • Finnish Lawsuit Seeks to Block The Pirate Bay
  • Much, Much More
