This issue has been grossly mischaracterized.
All of these so-called extensions, including the Bono act, have been for the
purpose of bringing each country's copyright term in line with all of the
others. I've heard nobody suggest that copyright should be extended beyond
the longest current term and it's stupid to expect any country to be willing
to shorten their copyright term as a means of conforming.
