Eps 208 – Bieber Be-Gone

Join Bieber Nation Image

It’s Friday again and that means it’s time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show!

It was a busy week for copyright news as we get to learn about another feature of iCloud Music Match, a copyright attack takes down official music videos of Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga among others. Also, former Pirate Bay admins start a new project that they promise will be legitimate and it could be the beginning of the end for compulsory licenses for TV and satellite providers.

All in all, this is one jam-packed episode with a lot of great talking points and some food for thought that you do not want to miss out on.

This week’s stories include:

  • iCloud to Offer Streaming Services (Kind of)
  • False Copyright Notices Briefly Remove Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga Videos
  • Pirate Bay Admins to Start File Locker Service, Go Legit
  • Copyright Office Proposes Ending Statutory Licenses for Satellite and Cable
  • Google, La Martiniere Reach Settlement of Book Scanning
  • Chinese Funeral Fakes Spark Copyright Debate
