Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 269 – Disney Horror

Escape from Tomorrow Poster

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

On that note, it’s officially over. Copyright is dead and Kim Dotcom killed it. With the launch of Mega this week, I can’t imagine that we’ll have anything else to ever talk about again. So who knows if there will be an episode 270.

But, just in case there is another episde, we also decided to go ahead and talk about a bunch of other great stories including the latest in the AP/Meltwater case, more Twitter photographers seeing their images appear in newspapers and Myspace being accused by indie labels of infringement.

We also have news from France as both French newspapers and Hadopi want more out of their deals and we conclude by visiting Disneyworld via cinema (though the filmmakers weren’t exactly invited).

This week’s stories include:

  • Kim Dotcom Launches Mega, Megaupload’s Successor
  • EFF and Others File Briefs in Meltwater Case
  • London Helicopter Crash Sparks Newspaper Photo Frenzy
  • Indie Labels Blast Myspace Over Unlicensed Music
  • French News Publishers and Google Fail to Reach Deal
  • HADOPI Plans to Nearly Double Number of Infringement Notices
  • Horror Movie Shot in Disney World Raises Copyright and Trademark Questions
