Abstract

Considers whether the UK rule that certain unpublished works remain in copyright until 2039 irrespective of their creation date should be revised. Examines the background to Australia's abolition of perpetual copyright, its impact on constitutional property protection, and its lessons for the UK. Suggests a model for UK copyright term reduction, assesses its compatibility with ECHR Protocol 1 art.1, and notes the relevance of publication right.
