 Implications of extending the term of copyright in the music industry

 1. Copyright is everywhere
 Copyright gives the author of an original work exclusive right for a certain time period in relation to that work, including its publication, distribution and adaptation, after which time the work is said to enter the public domain. The copyright holder a bundle of exclusive rights to control certain uses of their creative work 
 To copy To To To create To profit and publically publically derivative from the distribute display the perform works work the work work the work 
 It automatically applies to every tangible form of creative expression: 2. Copyright Essence It seems times comes faster than we can understand, if we think on copyrights 30 years ago “The primary purpose of copyright is to give authors and artists credit for their works and to “protect” them from those who intend to steal the fruits of their labour”. At the end the objective is to promote the progress of science and the useful arts Are you still believe its happens in the music industry?

 3. Copyright Balance The reason to have a balance is mainly to foster the creativity around the artist, it is clear with the barrier to copy was necessary to protect artist to promote it, to keep creating new records but as other market the situation is not the same as 30 years ago. d . lop side !"#$%&'%()*+*,) !+%-.)*'%()*+*,) By favouring the interests of copyright holders without equally considering public interest, the system is becoming increasingly restrictive with the risk to create a monopolistic system than only benefit big corporations. The general problem is that the copyright system currently undermines its own goal. The role of copyright law has become less about supporting creativity and more about protecting commercial interests. When this happens, society will ultimately lose what should be a gain.

 4. Copyright Situation The philosophy behind copyright in Web 2.0, the democratisation of distribution channels copyright has turned into a barrier of knowledge dissemination rather that a an encourager but is clear that abolition of copyrights is not the right solutions because that knowledge to being produce require investment and other sources than creativity, for that reason the concept is valid today, the aim of this assignment is not support the abolition of copyright, just only explain that extend the copyright means a negative barrier for the industry and not follow the nature of them. 5. Copyright Extension The European Union has proposed a plan to retroactively extend the copyright terms on musical recordings for another 45 years. Apparently, it's unfair for performers who recorded tracks in their twenties not to keep receiving money for them in their seventies; under the current 50-year copyright term, "this means that income stops when performers are retired and in that case it make sense to extend de right to protect artist. EU Commissioner Charlie McCreevy is the person who is trying to get the extension, his most compelling argument for the extension is that, in his view, "Copyright represents a moral right of the performer to control the use of his work and earn a living from his performance, at least during his lifetime." As and others countries like USA the lobbies in the music industry don’t have influence because several sources like UK government goowers review and the University of Amsterdam information law centre has revealed that the results of term extension • Consumer pay higher prices • Competition impeded • Primer beneficiaries will be the owners of large back of catalogues EU Commissioner ignores these conclusions.

 6. Copyright Solution? The European commission estimates 90% of all sales revenues associated with the extension of copyrights will go to record label, it is make sense? Our proposal is based in a less restrictive market because is the new era with the new technology restrictions and right extensions only means negative barriers for the market, performERS and users Our solutions to help artist are: • Regulating copyrights contracts, with the extension has demonstrated that the performances are not going to be the most benefit • Setting up social security and insurance scheme for artist. • Examine remuneration right available to living performers • Regulate collection societies and licence tariffs
