This is why the music copyright term extension seemed pointless.

I can take some music that's pre-1963 and thus public domain in the UK, and upload it to a webserver hosted in the UK and operated by a UK citizen, and still get sued in the US.

Which I've done, apart from the getting sued part, as a protest against the ridiculous length of copyright these days.
