Musicians sue UK.gov over 'zero pay' copyright fix

Want their cake and to eat it

They'll never be satisfied. They already got the copyright term limits raised so that they can continue to profit off their music half a century after its release or 70 years after its creation.

Then there's the "we sold our music to a record company for £250,000 but we don't make any money from sales" whingers. They weren't complaining when they got a £250,000 cheque were they?

It seems that for the performing arts, the more successful you get the more entitled you believe you are.
