A message from the folks at Open Rights Group regarding Sound Copyright:
The European Parliament is set to vote on whether to double the term of copyright in sound recordings. Sound Copyright invites you to register your concern at an event on the proposed Term Extension Directive, on Tuesday 27 January 2009 in the European Parliament in Brussels.
This flawed Directive has been unanimously condemned by Europe’s leading intellectual property research centres. The European Parliament must address the mounting concerns of consumer groups and copyright users if they want a modern, workable intellectual property policy. Please, if you can, come to Brussels and register your concern. If you can’t make it, please invite your MEP to attend on your behalf.
Looking forward to seeing you in Brussels,
Executive Director, Open Rights Group
And if you can’t go?
- Invite your MEP to attend the 27 January event on your behalf (you can get their contact details here.
- Invite your MEP to sign the Sound Copyright petition
- Ask your MEP to watch the Open Rights Group’s cartoon “How
copyright term extension in Sound Recordings actually works” (YouTube video)
