I presume this is very different from the copyright on recorded music then?

Yes it is different - in UK and EU I think for sound recordings it is now 70 years after release, extended from 50 years in 2011 after campaigning by Cliff, et al, because tunes like Eleanor Rigby were about to lapse - 50 years from 1966 is this year!  70 years takes it unto 2036.

 

Note that the copyright on a tune is 70 years from death of composer, but that on the sound recording is 70 years from release regardless of death or life of the performers.

It's different again in the USA, and more complex - see http://copyright.cor...ublicdomain.cfm.  Pre-1972 US recordings are subject to state law not federal, so even more complex

 

Again, IANAL - but this is my understanding.

I am no expert. My previous post was made after looking up a few websites via google. I did not note the url's  and unfortunately have not found the same sites again. This is an extract from Wikipedia - not always an infallible source:

 

Sound recordings

Under the 1988 Act, copyright in a sound recording expires either (a) 50 years after the recording is made, or (B) if the recording is published during that period then 50 years from the publication, or © if during the initial 50 years the recording is played in public or communicated to the public then 50 years from that communication or playing to the public, provided the author of the broadcast is an EEA citizen. Otherwise, the duration under the laws of the country of which the author is a national applies, unless such a duration would be longer than offered in UK law, or would be contrary to treaty obligations of the UK in force on 29 October 1994.

As of 1 November 2013, the copyright on sound recordings not yet in the public domain was extended from 50 to 70 years.[21]

Posthumous works

If an unpublished work was published before the 1988 Act came into force, and the author had been dead for more than 50 years, the work remained in copyright for 50 years from the end of the year of publication.

If an unpublished work is published after the 1988 Act came into force, and the author had been dead for more than 50 years, its copyright will expire at the end of 2039. Later amendments have altered this to include only authors who died more than 70 years before the Act came into force.

Therefore, an unpublished work by an author who died before 1918, published after commencement of the 1988 Act, will expire at the end of 2039. However, if a work by an author who died in, say, 1870 was published in 1970 (i.e. before the 1988 Act), its copyright would expire 50 years after 1970, i.e. in 2020.

Here's a great duet, mostly in thirds so not that adventurous but good fun nonetheless.

It's been a while since my last post and this isn't exactly in keeping with the spirit of the thread but this is a lovely piece inspired by this BBC video:

All the way from 1799 to the current day, what's not to like?
