Copyright 2.0 Show – Episode 357 – Legal Trifecta

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

It may be a holiday week in much of the world but Evan and myself have a bonus week to catch up on so we have a very full episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show. This episode is a whirlwind tour of the entire copyright landscape first looking at the host story of the month, the Blurred Lines case, but then shifting halfway around the world to talk about DVDs and obscure Digital Millennium Copyright Act rules.

We also have one lawsuit ending in a surprisingly amicable way and another that’s continuing despite a Supreme Court ruling. However, most unusual of all, we have news that the Beastie Boys have completed a legal trifecta (or hat trick, triple double or any other analogy you want), something not yet covered on the Copyright 2.0 Show.

All in all, it’s enough to make your head spin and ensure that this is an episode you do not want to miss.

This week’s stories include:

  • Gaye Estate Presses to Hold Label, T.I. Liable
  • DVDFab Hit with More Injunctions
  • Beastie Boys Wins Summary Judgment in “Paul’s Boutique” Case
  • Universal Music Countersued in In-Flight Music Case
  • Universal Music Settling Class Action Lawsuit Over Digital Royalties
  • Ted Lawsuit Dismissed by Plaintiffs
  • MGM Moves to End Raging Bull Case
  • Blizzard Sues Over Hearthstone Clone
  • Tidal Launches, Stars Fawn, Fans Yawn
