How Copyright Extension in Sound Recordings Actually Works

Synopsis
The European Parliament is set to vote on whether to double the term of copyright in sound recordings in early 2009. This 5-minute cartoon was commissioned by the Open Rights Group to explain why this proposal is a bad idea and urging the Parliament to address the mounting concerns of consumer groups and copyright users if they want a modern, workable intellectual property policy.
