If it's as bad for the reading public as the SoB act of 1998, I hope it won't be implemented at all. I'm all for authors getting their due, but to receive (without needing to renew) an automatic life plus 70 years is absurd. It's just another bone for greedy copyright lawyers and lazy, live off the work of their relatives heirs.
