Explaining the unexplainable January 20, 2009

Today is a big day. We will hear what the MEPs on the Legal Affairs Committee think about copyright term.

I predict that every MEP that speaks will say he or she has the performers interests at heart. I also predict that some will reflect performers’ views and speak in favour of the Copyright Term Directive. Others will say they want to help performers, and then propose an amendment which is not to our benefit.

My favourite ‘sheep dressed in lamb’s clothing’ is the proposal that performers should be given rights, and then be forced to give them away free. So far, only one MEP has put forward that idea. We’ll see if any other MEPs support her.

By the end of the day, we will have a better idea of which MEPs genuinely have performers’ interests at heart.
