EU ministers likely expanding music copyright protections

Artists in Europe may gain protection periods similar to those in the U.S.

Ministers from the European Union are expected to vote next week in Brussels to extend performing artists’ copyright protection in Europe.

The change would extend musicians’ copyright protection in Europe from 50 years to 70 years, which is similar to the protection periods afforded to artists in the U.S.
