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 us and a lot of great stories had to get cut from the list. But that was just to make more room for the things we needed to talk about, including major developments in the Jammie Thomast-Rasset case and the Google/Viacom case. We also have several stories about copyright “troll” organizations and a couple of interesting cases studies on the business of music.

All in all, this is a show that you don’t want to miss (though you may get Gangnam Style stuck in your head if you think about it too hard).

This week’s stories include:

  • Jammie Thomas-Rasset Appeals to the Supreme Court
  • Google Files Another Motion to Dismiss Against Viacom
  • Verizon Turns Tables on Copyright Trolls
  • Mass Bittorrent Lawsuits Head to Canada
  • Another Copyright Troll Firm Accused of Identity Theft
  • How Much has Gangnam Style Made PSY?
  • Metallica Joins Spotify, Makes Peace with Sean Parker
