Royalty free (classical) music for soundtrack?

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Johan Lindberg, Apr 29, 2004.

  1. I understand, that if recording is more than 50 years old, then there
    is no copyright or royalty. So I am looking for old recordings, from
    40's and 50's. Where can I find these?

    Your understanding is incorrect.

    Under current copyright law, copyright holds for a number of years after the
    death of the author/artist - I can't remember if it's 50, 75 or 100 - it
    seems to keep changing every time Mickey Mouse is due to expire...

    You can see the details of the copyright law at the copyright office
    website - I think it's www.copyright.gov

    Your understanding is incorrect.
    I think it also depends on the area in which the author lived.

    It would depend on the country, but most countries are signatory to the
    Berne convention, which is very similar to US law.
