Saw this on ILUG:
"The [UK] government wants to extend copyright laws to ensure pop songs
are protected for almost twice as long as the current 50 years.
It sees the move as a way of generating more money for the record
industry, which would use it to discover new talent."
The article contains no criticism of this proposal. You can bet that the
EU would be happy to "harmonise" this arrangement to other EU members
and to other fields of creative activity.
