The Gowers report recommends not extending UK copyright

According to the BBC, the Gowers review will recommend not extending the term of UK copyright from 50 to 95 years. Cliff Richard is disappointed by this but, well, fuck Cliff Richard. The proposed extension was to “harmonise” UK copyright law with US law, so when the US extends we all follow on behind? The hell with that. Nice one Andrew Gowers. Obviously the recording industry is getting their knickers in a twist over this, not that I care very much. Applauds to the independent review!
