Musicians and authors turn on the UK Greensmain
The Green Party has published a proposal to limit UK copyright to 14 years.
It has drawn an instant rebuttal from the Musicians Union: ‘Musicians need the income from copyright to survive. @TheGreenParty say it should last 14 years. We say, at least a lifetime.’
And Philip Pullman is leading a chorus of authorial outrage.
The proposal would, of course, kill off most UK cultural industries.
You vote Green at our peril.
