In reply to: Ben 's message, "Public Domain" on Thu December 20, 2018 10:47:43

Hi Ben

In the U.S.A., copyright for recorded works was bumped up to
75 years (perhaps only 70?) a few years back.

As I understand it, that means 75 years from first publication.

This would mean that Buddy's earliest recordings, i.e. the first published, will be fully in the public domain in either 8 or 13 years.

Of course, other countries have a shorter copyright of 50 years or less, making all of Buddy's originally released
recordings Public Domain in those territories.

Sadly, one benefit of (and motivation for) "newly Dubbed" versions is that they are granted a fresh copyright protection period.
