I consider all copyright extensions to be a breach of contract and invalid. Fuck that shit.

Edit: I read the link, sounds like some specific work for hire stories he wrote near the end of his life fall under the 95 years after publication date rule so there's no extension involved. However: copyright would actually belong to whoever paid for the story in the first place as work for hire, and only those specific stories would be covered by copyright. The character of Sherlock Holmes is fair game. The Doyle estate are parasites who are demonstrating why copyrights need to expire.
