It is Friday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
This week on the Copyright 2.0 Show, Patrick and myself continue our return to normal form with some significantly less-than-normal copyright news.
First, we have a surprise case reaching the Supreme Court, a soap opera style update in the Prenda Law saga and a pair of settlements, one involving a photographer in the UK and the other involving Yahoo in Singapore.
But we’re not done, we take a look at the effects of the government shutdown on the copyright world, Microsoft’s latest DMCA blunder and a Broadway lawsuit over a broad number of plays…
All of that and much more on this, Episode 302 of the Copyright 2.0 Show!
This week’s stories include:
- Raging Bull Case Heads to the Supreme Court
- Prenda Law’s Case Takes Another Twist
- Photographer Gets Big Settlement from UK Club
- Yahoo Settles with Singapore newspaper company
