Matt Smith, corporate lawyer comments on this case: 

"Although the issue of the jurisdiction of a contract appears to be Duran Duran’s stumbling block in this case, perhaps it is time to re-assess our copyright laws and look towards adopting a seemingly fairer system, similar to the USA’s model, which gives artists the opportunity to reclaim their copyright after 35 years whilst also allowing them to renegotiate fairer, less draconian terms."
