But there is a current article in the British Wired site that says "EU 
regulators in Brussels have voted to approve 
<http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-14829373> a controversial 
directive that would see musicians retain copyright over their sound 
recordings for a further 20 years" and "On 12 September 2011, a Council 
of Ministers will have the final say"

Plus this article links to a BBC article by Rory Cellan-Jones 
<http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/correspondents/rorycellanjones> Technology 
correspondent "Victory for Cliff's Law"
