Here’s why Canadian rock star Bryan Adams wants politicians to change copyright laws

Imagine if people paying mortgages had to wait to own their home until they’d been dead for 25 years.

That’s what Canadian music icon Bryan Adams said is the case for artists and creators in this country who cannot get the copyright back on their works after they sign contracts with publishers and record firms, and he wants the government to change the rules.

“I couldn’t understand why someone would even want to create something that was so difficult for authors and creators,” Adams said during his appearance before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage.

“Who would think up, 25 years after you die, you get to own your house?”
