The UK Holds the Copyright Line

Copyright issues are hugely important to the entertainment industry around the world. Not surprisingly, the U.S.'s 95 year term is deemed to be a minimal baseline by them. Over in the U.K. however, the lobbying effort has failed. Their copyright term will remain fifty years. I consider it a good thing, but there are those who disagree. Notably, most of them stand to get less money due to the shorter copyright lengths.
