Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act (CTEA)The Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act (CTEA) was enacted in 1998. It extended the term of copyright for every work in the United States-even those already copyrighted-for an additional 20 years, so the copyright term equaled the life of the creator plus 70 years. CTEA also known as Mickey Mouse Protection Act.

Eldred v. Ashcroft 1999 (Eldred challenges Bono Act and lost 2003)The plaintiffs' argument:
1-Retroactively extending copyright terms, Congress had violated the requirements of the Constitution's Copyright Clause
2-Any copyright law must be subject to scrutiny under the First Amendment, thereby ensuring a balance between freedom of speech and interests of copyright.
3-The CTEA violates the doctrine of public trust by withdrawing material from the public domain.
