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: http://soundcopyright.eu/petition

"The best parts are watching Sly go through the full range of emotions: deadpan, deadpan with raised eyebrow, deadpan with quivering lip. There's also a great sequence where Sly drives his VW Beetle down the interstate for about 20 minutes, staring dramatically through the windshield.."-Joe Bob on A MAN CALLED RAMBO

    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:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
