Copyright terms could be shorter in some cases, or longer in others (I prefer shorter) but either way it doesn't really matter. If you can't protect your work when you publish it on the interwebs from being scraped or pirated, then copyright does not really exist. See the tree falling in a forest problem.
Andrew freetards like Ms.Reda will only get this when they lose a major F/OSS case. Then, miraculously, they will be in favour of strong copyright that you can defend without calling on an expensive lawyer.
