Professor Peter Jaszi was quoted in a recent Washington Post article on copyright extension terms. Jaszi describes the restaurant industry’s campaign for broader copyright exemption for small bars and restaurants as “a hostage situation” and the reason why The Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act did not pass until 1998 despite the legislation being introduced in 1995.

The rest of the article focuses on whether copyright holders will get another extension of copyright terms before their works fall into the public domain on January 1, 2019. Read the full-length article here.
