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:
