Copyright Duration


Subject:
Intellectual Property , Copyright

Description:
A flowchart for determining whether copyright is still in effect in the United States for a copyrighted work. The site notes that "generally, when you think of copyright term, you think in terms of the author's lifespan, plus some bonus years. However, as Congress keeps extending the bonus years," calculating the duration becomes more difficult. Does not provide citations to applicable laws. From a company that provides copyright registration services.
