RE: Legal Question

Anyway, copyright protection is typically
life-of-the-author *plus* 70 years.

A minor point, for information, the copyright laws are different across the
world. For example a paper submitted for copyright in the UK has a 100 year
protection from the date of the author's death. I can't remember the length
in France and Germany, but I do know they are different. On a strange aside,
the book Peter Pan by JM Barrie is infact listed under British law such that
its copyright will never run out. The reason being that all proceeds
generated go to a childrens hospital in London.
