Are music copyright laws in the UK simply ABSURD?

23 09 2008

Musical artists can earn royalties for 50 years from the year a recording was made. Writers can earn for 70. Is that ridiculous or what? In a word – yes. Becasue the two should be equal, the UK law is absurd.

Personally I can’t stand the creeps that jack up the prices kids pay for music so high they seem out of control. They sue kids and family members trying to kill them financially for the rest of their lives to protect their artificially high fees. Because of those 2 reasons I have no remorse over their situation. But it does seem a tiny bit unfair.Liverpool DuskImage by petecarr via Flickr
