Intense lobbying pressure has resulted in last minute tabling of the copyright term extension proposal, for a full plenary vote in the European Parliament, in Strasbourg next thursday. However, with the European elections rapidly approaching and the Council of Ministers currently blocking the proposal, its future cannot be guaranteed.
Reanimating a discredited text that doesn't deliver what it purports and misleads politicians and cheats the public sends the wrong signal to European voters. Act now and contact your MEPs and demand they reject the proposal.
MEPs will be in their Brussels offices this Friday and next Monday and in Strasbourg from Tuesday on. Let them know why copyright extension is the wrong move.
