As far as I am aware, EU law supersedes UK law, and EU law says the term for recordings is 50 years after creation. (Directive 93/98/EEC.)

Why? How much do you want to bet that Amerikkka will use the ‘harmonization’ excuse to push this here in the land of free/brave home?

Don Foster is a backbench MP belonging to the third largest party. He also backs a copyright extension to 95 years:

Mr. Foster: I am extremely grateful to the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. He will be aware that about 4,500 musicians have signed up to PPL’s demands. However, I support a move that will extend copyright to 95 years.

What exactly are we supposed to be celebrating? Or did Mr Lessig merely skim read Hansard without thinking?

The internet is doing wonders for literacy.

Lawrence linked to a page at parliament.uk where the website of “The United Kingdom Parliament” is hosted – that is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. So, whilst it is not exactly the British Parliament, it does claim to represent Scotland and Wales as well as England. Of course, Ewan may have a problem with “The United Kingdom Parliament” referring to itself as such but that is not something over which Lawrence has much control:-)

There is Westminster and there is Holyrood, with assemblies in Cardiff and Northern Ireland. There’s even a Scottish Creative Commons to show the difference between the oldest legal framework (Scots law) and the younger cousin (English law).

Indulge me – I don’t get a chance to be pedantic that often ;-)
