Copyright Basics

Copyright Basics:

"How long does copyright last?

For works created after 1978, copyright generally lasts for the life of the author plus 70 years. For works for hire (those works owned by your employer), anonymous or pseudonymous works, copyright generally lasts for 95 years from the date the work was published, or 120 years from creation of an unpublished work, whichever is shorter. There are exceptions, but this is the general term."
