Yeah, something like that.
We need a different type of copyright law for those held by corporations than those held by individuals for sure since death obviously doesn't work for corporations.
Something like fixed 75-90 years probably works when you figure most of the creators are going to be in their early 20s or older if they're writing, directing, producing etc.
