House of Lords
Lord Clement-Jones (Spokesperson in the Lords, Culture, Media & Sport; Liberal Democrat)
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they intend to implement any proposals of the European Commission to extend the term of copyright protection for sound recording performers from 50 to 95 years.
Baroness Morgan of Drefelin (Baronesses in Waiting, HM Household; Labour)
At the time of writing, the Government have not yet had a chance to study in detail the proposal in its final published form. Decisions on implementation will have to await the outcome of discussions at European level.
