Guardian article – Who will lobby for our right to copy?

Quote:
“The recording industry’s imposition of its own contract law – which can last forever – on top of the laws of copyright can, as the British Library has pointed out, override “fair use” provisions and even end copies for the disabled. The government should resist industry pressures to nail down costly long-term restrictions when the digital revolution is making content cheap and accessible.”
