With the snow falling and the cold creeping upon the UK, your intrepid TechBytes hosts have a plethora of faster paced news headlines to discuss, argue and comment over.

Set to a tighter time limit, the publication of this show means that during the month of November we managed fifteen episodes.  Thats a lot of talking and a lot of opinion!

Today we are looking at copyright issues including the news on Mulve:

And Gordon mentions a rather interesting long running news story about copyright:

  1. [...] TODAY’S show in the 15th show in a month of 30 days. Rather than cover a special topic we cover a variety of news stories and have a debate about them. OpenBytes will publish our show notes soon. (Update: they are published now) [...]
