The European Parliament has voted to extend copyright in recordings to seventy years.
The BBC coverage is a bit shabby, starting with this:
Musicians in line for cash boost
and then going on to claim that "thousands" of "less well-off session musicians" will benefit from this "boost", even although almost nobody believes that.
In fact, the only sour note is buried deep in the piece:
UK Green MEP Caroline Lucas said: "I am disappointed that MEPs chose to ignore the voices of the artists they claim to be helping.
"It is clear that action is needed to better reward performers for their work, but the legislation approved today is absolutely not the solution.
"The copyright extension to 70 years will fill the pockets of a limited number of powerful corporations and harm performer rights and artistic creativity."
The one encouraging note is that material currently out of copyright won't be taken back in - which is what happened when copyright in published work was extended, with a number of public domain works vanishing again.
