IFPI gain extra time to lobby

April 2005

Record Labels

The International Federation of Phonographic Industries (IFPI) and other interested parties in the music industry have been granted extra time to present their case for the extension to the 50 year term for the life of copyright for sound recordings in Europe after the European Commission altered its timetable for reviewing legislation. Recordings by classic rock and roll artists such as Elvis Presley are beginning to fall into the public domain. Already nearly 140 European artists, managers and trade organisations (including the IFPI and BPI) have provided comment to the EC.
