How can this be pd in Australia?

Norman Lindsay died in 1969. This person's work may still be protected by copyright in countries where copyright duration is determined by the author's death date. In Australia it is 70 years for authors who died after 1955.


1969 + 70 = 2039, so his works are pd in Australia from 2040.
Am I missing something important here?

This is perfectly fine for people in the US and in Canada and other death + 50 years though.
Cheers, Ava.

You see, Ava? It’s not just me, it’s something in the air. :wink: The 40C air. :help:

Don’t worry, Annie, I’ve been known to make this public domain related error on occasion. :wink:

Repeatedly. :roll:

Cheers,
Chris

It's my bad... I just double checked the article I had been reading... I thought it was from an Aussie publication... I wish I had figured this out before I did all that work though...

Sorry to waste your time,
Annie

Don't despair! If someone in the US is prepared to take this on they could use your scripts and the work will not be wasted 👍😺
