ORG campaigns against EU copyright term extension

Open Rights Group, in association with the EFF, is launching a new campaign to oppose the extension of the copyright term, brought back to the table by EU Commissioner McCreevy's proposal to nearly double copyright terms for sound recordings in the EU. ORG says that to “help the EU's decisionmakers understand how bad an idea for innovation and the future copyright term extension is, we need as many people as possible to hear about the sound copyright campaign, and sign the petition
They have also started a new website explaining the issue and also say that they’ll “use your support to lobby individual Commissioners, and to ensure that this misguided policy is rejected”.
