Copyright Extentsion

The Reg suggests there may be a "credible opposition" to copyright extension, and seems a little miffed that it wasn't heard at In The City in Manchester this week. Oh dear, perhaps they should get with the program - there is no opposition to what is the entirely appropriate extension - and certainly not a "credible" one. I thought these "independent", "new media" types were supposed to be for artist rights - more likely they are in the pockets of media conglomorates and advertisers after all.
