Currently Eurpoean copyrights on sound recordings last for 50 years before falling into the public domain.  With the Beatles recordings soon to become public domain, "interested parties" appear to be lobbying to have the terms extended to 95 years.

50 years is a quite reasonable copyright term, allowing the artist/creator to profit from the work during his lifetime.  After 50 years, the copyright only benefits the estate or the music publisher. 

As your lawyer  Wink, I advise my European friends to sign the petition opposing the copyright extension:

"Larry Buchanan's latest movie proving that the Mafia, Castro, Bobby Kennedy, the CIA, the FBI, Elvis and the Russians all did everything bad for the last thirty years. Larry is not just a conspiracy theorist. Larry's so paranoid he thinks there's a conspiracy to cover up all the conspiracies, and another conspiracy to cover up the conspiracy to suppress his movies."-Joe Bob on GOODNIGHT, SWEET MARILYN

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
