No Beatles for you! EU adds 20 years to music copyrights

A comment on reddit:

[T]here’s not a chance in hell that any rock and roll will be in the public domain in 20 years. The music industry now has 20 years to lobby for an even longer copyright. I suspect we’ll find that copyright length is actually likely to extend indefinitely. This 20 year extension is nothing, copyright lost its original purpose many years ago.
