On copyright across the pond

Simon HB at No Rock&Roll Fun gives a typically incisive take on the BPI's latest wranglings over copyright periods...

Leaving aside that they're using Elvis as the posterboy for the campaign, and unless they know something we don't, he's pretty dead ("How can we take away his copyright until the National Inquirer have accepted his death", maybe?) are they suggesting that it's unfair that artists should be disinherited before they even die? How many recording artists own the rights to their records? Hardly any.
