The latest plans to extend copyright term in the EU seem to have fired up a collected who’s who of copyright academics …
A band of intrepid professors have taken to the pages of the Times to point out why it’s a bad idea, via IPKat also having a go at performer’s rights
Another group calling themselves “Sound Copyright” have also reacted strongly (and negatively), via IPKat again
And, soon to visit these shores (here and here), Bill Patry http://ipkitten.blogspot.com/2008/07/sound-copyright-time-to-take-action.htmlweighs in from across the water
and, not to be outdone, some academics have decided to counter-attack against the copyright owners’ rather restrictive interpretation of the ‘3 step test’: IPKat and Patry both joining in.
