How Copyright Extension is Harming Classical Music
The EU decided to retroactively extend copyright from 50 to 75 years, with no evidence that this was needed or useful. There has been very little discussion of the harm this causes, and what discussion there has been has focused on the world of rock and pop music. But it has an even more negative impact on classical music, especially old recordings of classical music.
