Default UK Petition to use 2D works in the PD

This petition was called to my attention on Wikipedia, which of course likes to have lots of images available for use in articles, but many others, including me, like the idea anyway. If you live in the UK, you can sign the petition. Here is the information on the petition:

We would like the Prime Minster to hold a review of the copyright status of 2D works which are merely exact reproductions of existing 2D works in the public domain.

This issue was raised under Bridgeman v. Corel in the US; we would like a similar freedom to be established in the UK. This would contribute towards the use of the internet as a learning facility; the broadening of cultural horizons and end the growing uncertainty about the situation currently.
