Please: Oppose Copyright Term Extension

Dear Mr. Crowley, As one of your constituents, and as an aspiring writer with a vested interest in intellectual property structures, I am writing (publicly) to you to ask that you please consider opposing the proposed Copyright Term Extension in the European Parliament this week and going forward. Copyright term extension does not protect general artists, for whom a creative work is almost never going to be commercially viable after 50 years in any case.
