  • Generally, 70 years from the death of the author/creator (though bear in mind that these may be multiple)
  • Sound recordings: 70 years after their creation, broadcast or release
  • Typographic arrangements (including music scores): 25 years after creation
  • Work published in a country other than the EU or US may be subject to a shorter period of copyright (50 years)

We have a guide to copyright that covers the basics of copyright.
