Immediately reduce the term of copyright from "70 years from the end of the calendar year of the author's death" to two 40 year terms, with a renewal necessary after the first 40 years. Make the necessary preparations for a general case within the World Trade Organization's Dispute Settlement Body, regarding UK conformity with the Berne Convention).

Lobby other states for a worldwide further reduction to "life + 25 years".

Lobby for the rest of the world to adopt the same - two 40 years terms - for copyright.

Following on from #423 this changes the lobbying part slightly to specify that we'll lobby the rest of the world to adopt two 40 year terms for copyright, rather than life + 25.

@Xyleneb you should be able to vote on this followup to your PR, if you want :)
