I don’t know if you are aware, but Dominic McGonigal, our Director of Government Relations just launched a blog concentrating on the progress of the copyright term directive and the surrounding debate. We have had a huge amount of interest in this subject from our performers (38,000 of them!) and there is of course wider interest in the debate. The particularities of the European process leads to an unusual unfolding of the story, one that must be told for all the performers who as I’m sure you know, are currently treated as second class creators.
Please feel free to use material from the blog. Equally, we would be very interested in any information or viewpoint you might want to contribute to this particular saga.
