Should the term of copyright protection on sound recordings stay at 50 years or be extended?
This question of term extension, along with many others, is now being considered by Andrew Gowers in his Review of Intellectual Property which was commissioned by the Treasury and is due to report before the end of the year.
The Open Rights Group believes that term extension is such an important issue that it deserves focused and rigourous discussion, so we’ve invited people from number of backgrounds to give us their thoughts and opinions.
We would be delighted if you could join us - the event is free to all, but places are limited so book now!
