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:

"The basic plot is that Donna Speir and Hope Marie Carlton, the two undercover DEA agent Playboy Playmates from the last movie, are still running around in jungle shorts, cowboy boots and spaghetti strap T-shirts, firing their machine guns at drug smugglers, Filipino communist guerrillas, and corrupt federal agents while their two friends, Lisa London and Miss May 1984 Patty Duffek, lounge around the pool a lot and talk on speaker phones that look like fax machines."-Joe Bob on SAVAGE BEACH

    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.
