Title: Worldwide map of copyright lenght term
Post by: Annie. on May 14, 2015, 01:52:50 PM
This may come handy.  I found a map of the World that shows colour coded copyright by length of time. 

I find it very useful as a first place to check for expired work, before going into the details.  Wikipedia
gives the link to a number of countries' copyright act.'_copyright_lengths#/media/File:World_copyright_terms.svg ('_copyright_lengths#/media/File:World_copyright_terms.svg)

Cheers, Annie

Just saw that I can copy this image, but I think I would need to download into the Gallery first.

Anyway, here is the reference if needed:

Worldwide map of copyright term length
Balfour Smith, Canuckguy, Badseed. - Original image by Balfour Smith at Duke University at page (direct link). Vectorized by Badseed using BlankMap-World6 as a basemap.

List of different countries and the length of their standard copyright in years. Data taken from File:World copyright-terms.jpg and its talk, whose data in turn was taken from Copyright term. Note that this image should be used as quick reference; it does not exlpain the copyright law of each country in its entirety and detail and might get outdated over time. For proper reference check Commons:Licensing and List of countries' copyright length. Countries with similar terms are grouped together for easy colouring. See File:World copyright-terms key wide plain.svg for a wide key for this file.
