UK Rejects A Bono-Like Copyright Term Extension [9:50 am]

UK rejects music copyright extensionpdf

The British government rejected a plea to extend copyright laws for sound recordings to beyond 50 years on Tuesday, prompting the music industry to accuse it of not supporting musicians and artists.

[...] Geoff Taylor, chief executive of the BPI, which represents the British recorded music industry, said the government had failed its test to show support for British music.

“We will continue to put forward the strong case for fair copyright in Europe,” he said. “It is profoundly disappointing that we are forced to do so without the backing of the British government.”
