petition against extending the terms of copyright on recorded music

Stop the chancellor using Lottery money to plug the funding gap in the 2012 olympics. If this goes ahead at least Â£900m will go from Big lottery, Sport England, Arts Council and Heritage Lottery much of this money would fund projects within the local voluntary and community sector.
