How long does UK copyright last?
Copyright in a literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work (including a photograph) lasts until 70 years after the death of the author. The duration of copyright in a film is 70 years after the death of the last to survive of the principal director, the authors of the screenplay and dialogue, and the composer of any music specially created for the film. Sound recordings are generally protected for 50 years from the year of publication. Broadcasts are protected for 50 years and published editions are protected for 25 years.
Performing artists are granted rights lasting for 50 years in relation to:
broadcasting and recording of their live performances;
copying, distribution, renting and lending of recordings of their performances; and
broadcasting, and other communication to the public by electronic transmission (including in on demand services) of sound recordings of their performances; and,
playing in public sound recordings of their performances.
These rights are related to copyright and similar considerations to those outlined above apply to those using material protected by performers` rights and to performers wishing to enforce their rights.
