Now is an opportunity to contact MEPs, Members of the European Parliament, and persuade them to vote against the term extension."

    Making the copyright permanent would create a greater incentive to create and would lower the cost for consumers by extending the time to earn back the investment and shifting the intersection of the price-demand curve down.

    And do the same thing for drugs while you are at it.

    The odds of copyright terms not being extended are about the same as me being struck and killed by a meteor tomorrow.

    That's the spirit, give up without a fight!

    GP was killed by a meteor an hour ago but died a happy person due to this, you insensitive clod.
