International Copyright Law

I have found the following information on the Wikipedia entry for Copyright Law of the United Kingdom: Where the author is not British (by nationality or domicile), and the work was first published outside the United Kingdom (and not published in the UK within 30 days thereafter), the period of copy...

Publicity Photos

Would a publicity photo (headshot) of a star taken in, say, 1960 be in copyright? I have read elsewhere that most publicity photos prior to 1964 would be in the public domain, but I just want to check this out to make sure.

Thanks. That helps a great deal. Nearly all the magazines are American, and with no UK equivalent edition, so that really helps to clarify things. Thank you.

The period would be 1950s to 1970s. I've always assumed that promotional materials such as these, film posters, etc were dif...

Magazine copyright query (an easy one, I hope!)

Hi. Great and useful site. I just want to run something by you folks so you can verify that I am correct in my assumption. I live in the UK, and have a collection of American magazines from the late 1920s. I have got verification that the copyright was not renewed on them and they are now in the pub...
