Term of Copyright

The term of copyright for a published work is as follows:


 
Type of work Duration of copyright
Literary, dramatic, musical, artistic work, photographs
60 years after the death of the author.
The period is counted from the beginning of the next calendar year after the year of death of the individual creator. For example, if a work is published on 12 June 2007, and the author died on 25 May 2010, the counting of 60 years will commence on 1 January 2011, and the copyright will expire on 31 December 2070.
In case of a work that has more than one author, the 60 year period will be counted from the year after the death of the author who dies last.
In case the creator is not an individual but an organisation or entity, copyright subsists for 60 years only.
 
Sound recording and cinematograph films 60 years after publication.
The period is counted from the beginning of the next calendar year after the year of publication.
e.g.: A sound recording is published on 31 October 2007, counting of the 60 year period will begin on 1 January 2008, and the period will expire at the end of 31 December 2067.
