The EU has the intention to adopt an extented copyright law. The formal signing will take place shortly. Meaning, the copyright will be protected for 95 years from conception, just as they are in the North America and Japan.

Not true, decision is still months away, they are only planning on it and it is looking like the UK will vote against extension.

I thought it was 50 years?

wmarkj: in most countries of the EU it IS 50 years, a protection of 95 years instead of those 50 years is requested. But as roger wilson wrote : it'll take a lot of time before this really happens. Ever seen politicians make a quick decision ( and you may be sure politics will play a serious part in this matter)? Not me ! Always EL.
